Very amazing incident….Lesson learnt are two: (1) Women visiting the matam have to be careful with few things (2) How acharams are important to all of us. On (1) there is one mami who is doing kaingaryams to HH Bala Periyava, who will promptly come and tell if hair is not properly knotted etc. She is very strict about few things….Although it might annoy few, I believe that we need these mamis to ensure that remind us the importance of such things to maintain the sanctity.

If you look at this photo, you will see a little bit of nervousness in Periyava’s face as these ladies are closer to do arathi and He is sitting as close to the wall as possible 🙂
