Jaya Jaya Sankara Hara Hara Sankara,
Our Periyava’s Sarvagnathuvam has no boundaries as seen in this incident below. I have heard this almost a decade back and was looking for it. Many Jaya Jaya Sankara to Shri Suresh P for the share. Rama Rama
Has Maha Periyava Ever Seen a Cricket Ball?
I have seen Kanchi Mahaperiyava right since my childhood, the earliest I recall seeing Him is when I was 6 or 7 years old. I always used to go to Matam during all my holidays when I was in school and college. All my vacations were spent with Him.
Once I went to to have His darshan in Elayaathangudi when I was in my 2nd year in college. And the next day early morning before He commenced Poojas I told Him I was leaving.
He asked me, “Wait, what is the hurry?!”
Told Him, “I am playing in a cricket match tomorrow”.
“Match? Do you play for your college?”
“Are you a bowler or batsman?”
“Both”, I replied.
“Are you a fast bowler or a spin bowler”?
“Are you an Opening Bowler? Do you bowl with the New Ball”?
“Do you bowl Inswingers or Outswingers?”
“Outswing means, you hold the seam of the ball upright and point it in the direction of first/second slips and bowl with this action, no?”, said the Sarveshwaran.
He showed me the Action and I was Stunned!
“Inswing means, the seam of the ball is pointed in the direction of leg slip and bowled with this action, no?”
Has He ever watched cricket being played or Has he ever seen a cricket ball?!
He took a Class for me that day and eventually let me go! :)))
Narrated by the very blessed Shri Chandrashekar, who is the son of Pollachi Jayam Patti! Patti is seen in the first picture and her son is in the second picture. How incredibly blessed they are. Shankara.
Outswing and Inswing? — Wow. Shankara.
“He showed me the action and I was stunned!” — How I wished that I could see His Action! Shankara.
Who will win today’s June 18th 2017 ICC Champion’s trophy? :)))
A blessed day to Everyone!
