Ha ha ha.
Even the Hindu Gods in America are falling victim to foreclosure and their ‘Commander’ is helpless to help them.
The Hindu Temple of Georgia, which has been in the eye of a storm for its liberal meat and alcohol policies, was sold in a foreclosure auction the other day after failing to repay a bank loan.
The identity of the buyer is not known.
Now the sole hope for the homeless Atlanta Hindu Gods Shiva, Balaji et al lies in the buyer being a devout Hindu.
The Hindu Temple of Georgia is the brainchild of Commander Selvam.
No, Selvam is not some elite Black Cat commando. Just an ex-member of the Indian Home Guards, where he was supposedly the first youngest Area Commander for Home Guards in Chennai City, Tamilnadu, India.
This is what the Hindu Temple of Georgia’s web site had to say about the Commander:
His Holiness Sri Sri SELVAM SIDDHAR also known as Dr. COMMANDER SELVAM is a divine personality, a great scholar.
….He is the only Swamiji in the world, who served in the police Department. He served as the first youngest Area Commander for Home Guards in Chennai City, Tamil Nadu, and India.
Sri Sri Selvam â€œSiddharâ€ helps the human mankind to come out different Â problems in the life through Vedic Rituals. Siddhar is the only living Siddhar and Swamiji in USA with the Atharva Veda background.
Last year, when asked by the MyFox Atlanta sting operation whether they could bring alcohol, beer or wine, this is what the divine personality Dr. Commander a.k.a. His Holiness Sri Sri SELVAM SIDDHAR had to say:
Except drugs, you can bring anything.
With the loss of the temple to foreclosure and supposedly facing a host of other problems as well our Dr. Commander Selvam (original name Annamalai Annamalai), has a hard road ahead of him now.
Maybe, Commander should now start offering himself the ‘spiritual counselling’ services he used to offer for those in trouble through ads in the Siddhi Times USA magazine.
Idli Podi, Anyone?
By the way, the same Hindu Temple and Community Center of Georgia also used to sell Iyer Masalas like Idli Podi, Sambar Podi, Rasam Podi, Special Murukku and Special Neiyappam.
Ha ha ha.
Whoever knew our Hindu Gods liked Murukku and Neiyappam.
What about Paruppu Vadai?
We bet Lord Shiva likes those yummy Paruppu Vadais. 😉
