Mata Anniversary- Sangeet Devbabali
ARTISTS- Mansi Joshi, Shubhangi Sadavarte Saint Tukaram was a true and honest devotee of Lord Vitthal. Totally consumed by this devotion, he dedicated his entire life chanting Lord Vithala's name oblivious of time, place, people and consequences. His wife, Avali, spent hours daily looking for him in the mountains near Dehu village. Saint Tukaram would be immersed in The Divine detached from the real world. It was one of those afternoons, with lunch in her hand, Avali was searching for Saint Tukaram when a wild thorn pierced her foot and she fell unconscious. A few hours later when she woke up, she found herself in her own house. She saw a strange lady doing her chores at home and taking care of her. The stranger introduced herself as Lakhubai. She was indeed Lord Rakumai, the wife of Lord Vitthal in disguise. Lakhubai came to help Avali but her real reason was something else. When Avali fell unconscious, it was Lord Vitthala who took the thorn out of Avali's feet. Rakumai was baffled with the thought - Why would her husband, a great God like Lord Vitthala, touch an ordinary lady's feet? She wanted an answer!
