Talked to Karthikeyan this morning to get some updates. He told me more ! First the updates::
- Total cows to be saved: 350
- Jain group rescued : 100
- Mahavir group from Coimbatore: 100
- To be saved : 150
- Contribution from all our readers: 3.6 Lakhs = 36 cows
the mahavir group invited Karthikeyan to Coimbatore, walked him through their ghosala; asked him to explain the situation. After hearing him, they immediately committed to 100 but they said that they would do their best for 150.
At this point, Karthikeyan thinks that we do not any more donation until we identify the need. Also he is traveling to the village today to discuss with Bala and his team to get more updates on the ground. So all others who have reached out to me for contribution, please wait till i communicate.
Due to the posting from our blog, the message has reached several people who are also showing interest and buying these cows etc. In fact the Mahavir group from Coimbatore and lot other ghosalas came to know about this situation from our blog post – I am happy that our blog is turning out to actually help people to do right things.
When I was talking to Karthikeyan, he was innocently narrated me an incident. He got a dream where Periyava was sitting on the floor with no vastram on his chest, with glasses on, one hand leaning on the floor. Karthikeyan asks Him about any income tax problem he might get because of these funds. Periyava says that no such things will come as he is surrounded by good people. Then he tells Him that he has never dealt any amount like this before and he is scared and unable to focus on his regular work etc. He patiently says “you do what you need to do. I will take care of you”. This dream came early morning today/yesterday around 4AM. The best part is Karthikeyan probably heard about Mahaperiyava only after our posting here. As Dr Padma Subramaniam and HH Sivan Sir says, “when Periyava comes in dream, it is not a dream – it is a darshan”! Karthikeyan is a blessed soul! What more one needs to understand that gho samrakshanam is Periyava’s #1 priority.
Karthikeyan is planning to start a ghosala named “Kanchi Maha Periyava Ghoshala” in Erode – the only way he knows to thank Periyava. I wish him all the bests in his efforts.
I thank each of you who have rallied quickly to save these cows and generously contributed for this great cause.
Jaya Jaya Sankara Hara Hara Sankara
