''Do u have children?''
''Yes, a boy and a girl.''
''Does your husband love the children?''
'' Very much.He holds them as dear as life itself!''
''Tell your husband,'I shall tell the children of your drinking habit.'He will stop it because of his love for his children.''

The lady told Periyaval about this with tears of joy streaming down her face,and prostrating to him,left.
