Will drive away hardships, says Oracle

Rangam at the Uppuguda Temple on Monday saw the Oracle, Anuradham, assuring the people on behalf of goddesses that the onus of taking care of them was on her shoulders.

“Making sure you people do not face any hardships is my responsibility. Let it be any disease or pain, I will drive them away,” the Oracle said. “You have offered me prayers and ‘bonams’ for five weeks, I will ensure you stay safe,” she said. When the priest asked her to bless the people and protect them from Covid-19, the Oracle said that she was capable of banishing diseases.

“Irrespective of the disease one is suffering, if the person visits my place with devotion and consumes my ‘prasadam’, I have the power to chase away any disease,” the Oracle said.
She also said that bigger troubles and diseases were about to haunt mankind but the deity was protecting them. Addressing the crowd at the temple, the Oracle also said that people should introspect their acts to avoid hardships.
