If you want to donate something, not required to be rich, proved an 80-year-old woman by donating Rs 1 lac, which she accumulated through begging, to Polali temple.
Ashwathamma, a resident of Kanchigoodu near Gangolli of Kundapur taluk, is the woman who donated the amount to the renowned Polali Sri Rajarajeshwari temple. She got this money by begging at the steps of the Polali temple itself. Now she has donated this for the Annadana programme of the temple.
Though she has poverty in her family, she is not worried about it, instead, she took a very big step with the money she earned. She is always attached to God and prays a lot. Ashwathamma also wears Lord Aiyappa garland most of the time throughout the year.
Executive officer of the temple P Jayamma, chief priest of the temple Madhav Bhat along with the others prayed especially for Ashwathamma on Friday, April 22, when she offered Rs 1 lac for the Annadana programme.
Devotees of the temple have highly appreciated the noble work of Ashwathamma at this elderly age.
