The Director General of Police, Mr R.R. Girish Kumar, on Sunday expressed awe over the mysterious ways of Lord Shiva.
The DGP, while worshipping at the famous temple of Lord Shiva at Srikalahasti, showed a photograph to the temple authorities and priests, which he had taken while performing Chandiyagam in Srikalahasti in 2008, when he was the additional DGP. The photograph showed a picture of the yagna fire and the flames formed the image of Lord Shiva dancing with a trishul and the Ganga on his head.
The DGP said he was stunned when he saw the photograph he had taken. “I thought I would show it to the temple authorities when I visit Srikalahasti again. It was due to the grace of Lord Shiva that I became the DGP. He is all pervading and his mysterious ways are colossal,” said the police officer.
News of the mysterious photograph soon spread and several devotees tried in vain to get a look at it. The DGP was said to have asked the temple authorities to enlarge the photograph and put it up at the entrance of the main temple.
