Next day morning when they came for the spot, for their surprise they found that new trak was completly broken & was in hapazard way. This incidence happend not just once, but 2-3 times. Then later on one fine night 1 of the engineer saw this great saints brundavanam & this was the reason why they had this trouble.

Later railways decieded to sketch a new plan & laid alternative line.

You can see the brundavanam of Sri Sri Lakshimikantha theertharu in the outskirts of Penukonda.
