Also you have kept 1000 coins pending to pay. All the people and relatives surprised and they could not understood anything. Everybody said that Sri Chidambar Mahaswamiji was here only and not left the home, then how is it possible. The Gayawal became little angree. And he told that I have got a promisory note duly signed by Sri Chidambar Mahaswamiji for an amount. At the same time he tookout the promosory note and showed infront of Sri Chidambar Mahaswamiji. Shri Diwakar took the same and to his surprise the letter was duly signed by Shri Chidambar Mahaswamiji only. Mahaswamiji smiled a little and asked shri Diwakar Dixit to bring 1000 coins as per letter of promise.
