I got married in 1994. In 1996, I was in the family way. On 31st May, 1996, I developed labour pains. We went to the doctor. He said that, I had to undergo an operation. Even if I underwent an operation, the doctor would only be able to save either my child, or me! Preparations were made for the surgery. I was taken to the labour room at 7:30 in the morning. They gave me an injection. I began to say 108 Potri Manthiram, praying to Amma to save both my child and me. At once, we heard thunder! It was terrible. We saw lightning! It began to rain! The wind blew fast! The wind was so strong, that it blew away the thatched roof of the operation theatre! The generator stopped working. They repaired the generator. The operation was done. It was 8:17 a.m. I was brought out of the operation theatre at 9:30 a.m. By Amma’s blessings, my baby and I are both alive! The doctor said that, they didn’t expect it at all! It was only God’s blessings! They wondered how this was possible. I knew that it is only Amma and the Divine Mother, who saved us! Every year, we go to Mel Maruvathur, wearing Sakthimalai and carrying Irumudi. In this way, I express my gratitude to Amma and seek Her blessings ever!
