Biography: Childhood Days

Sri Kalki Peedum Society / ஸ்ரீ கல்கி பீடும் சங்கம்

Sri Kalki was born in Singapore on 1st May 1954 at 8.45 pm. Among the eight brothers, he was the 2nd son of Mr. Viswalingam and Mdm. Yasotha. He was named Manogaran. While conceiving Manogaran, Mdm. Yasotha dreamt of Mother Sakthi, telling her that Manogaran is a divine child, who should be well taken care of.

Since Mr.Viswalingam was in the Malaysian Police Force, baby Mano was brought over to Johor Bahru by his parents. They stayed in a 'low-cost' house. One day, baby Mano saw a black cat walking on the roof railings that frightened his mother lying beside him. He reminded her about this incident few years later that surprised her. When Mano was about 5 yrs old, his father was transferred to Mersing so the family shifted over. They stayed near the Mersing forest. Both the brothers liked to roam the forest often especially when their father was away in the jungles for few days. Due to the surrounding, Mano was infected by Malaria fever. His 'high' fever and health condition landed him in Mersing Hospital for treatment.

Even after treatment, his fever was still unstable. One late night, while all the patients were sound asleep and the nurses were in their office, a couple dressed as doctors appeared in front of him. One touched his forehead and applied some 'holy ash or vibuthi' while the lady doctor peeled a fruit that looked like an orange and fed him. Later, they took a few steps back and transformed to their original form and disappeared. Mano screamed in fright that woke others and the nurses rushed to his bed. They checked on him and thought that he could have a bad dream due to the fever. Next morning, the doctor checked on Mano and found his fever was off so he discharged him from hospital.

Mano's grandma came to fetch him home and he related everything that happened and showed her the fruit's skin. His granny immediately recognized the fruit called 'Saathukudi', that is found in India. On the way home, they visited a temple. His granny asked him to show who visited him? He looked around carefully and pointed at the idol of Lord Siva & Mother Sakthi. His granny was happy for him but she was also curious about the incident. Mdm Yasotha, though surprised about the incident, did not take it seriously so it was slowly forgotten by them.

Mano was a very mischievous boy and he began to roam the forest again with his elder brother. Since there were other younger children, Mdm Yasotha did not have the time to control these boys. One day, Mano and his elder brother were standing near the chicken farm. Suddenly they noticed the chickens were running frantically everywhere. On observing, they noticed some movement near the chicken cages and began to watch it closely.

They saw a huge cobra slithering towards them. His elder brother Segar fled the scene immediately leaving Mano behind. But Mano was brave enough to wait there. He noticed the cobra was biting onto a long rounded stick and was slithering forward.

It came near Mano and left the stick in front of him. It raised its head high and than sweared upon the ground three times before moving away. Once the snake left the place, Mano brought the long stick home. Mdm Yasotha took the wood from him and looked closely. It looked like a solid cane shaped like a snake. Since Mano was young, he couldn't explain much to his mother. She placed the cane at the prayer altar. Mano's father was also surprised on seeing such a cane and was also curious why the snake had left it with his son.

Like other children, Mano began to go to school. His teacher noticed that Mano showed no interest in studies and he was always reading divine books or stories of Buddha, Jesus etc. He was given the last corner seat in the class as he did not concentrate in any of the subjects. Once his form teacher informed his father that Mano should be in an Ashram and not in school. Mano did not take his father's advice seriously instead he asked many questions about the various forms of God.

"How can man make an idol and pray it as god? If such, then how can the idol break and if it breaks who will save or help us?" His questions never suited his age and Mdm Yasotha was staggering for answers. She made her own stories to stop him from asking further questions. However, at school exams surprisingly Mano passed.

Mano was very playful in school too. He had many friends and most of them were girls. They shared their food with him during recess. At times, one of his teachers' mother passed some food in a lunch box to him to give it to her daughter but on the way, Mano ate half of the food very neatly and pass the rest to her. Mano always liked to give sweets to his friends so he took some coins from his fathers' pant pocket.

He will quickly bury the coins in the sand. Whenever the father finds out about the missing coins, he would check the boys thoroughly. Mano would put on an innocent face so Segar will get beaten most of the times. Once their father has gone to work, he will dig out the coins to buy sweets and give them to all his friends.

During holidays, all his friends roamed the Mersing forest with him. They would also swim in the rivers often. Once when they were playing, a green colored snake that flies and attacks mainly the eyes came directly to Mano; he immediately told the snake to stop and return; it followed his instruction. When Segar reached home, he quickly told his mother that Mano talks to snakes.

Another time, while they were playing together, a 'beheader' confronted them. Mano quickly told his friends to run in opposite directions while he diverted the 'beheader' to follow him. He ran so fast till he tripped and fell over a hill. He had a small cut at the forehead with no other big injuries since he fell into a river and later was pulled out by an old man. On another incident, he drowned in the sea following a crab. But halfway, he felt something dark pulling his leg deeper and deeper. He managed to give it a hard kick, that loosened its grip and disappeared.

Meanwhile, his father and uncle searched for him for several hours. They thought Mano was gone forever. Mano was washed ashore the next day still alive. He was brought home by police officers. Mano told his close friends that there is a kingdom below the sea and he knew that it was difficult for others to believe him.

Despite been beaten often by his parents for all his mischievous acts, he never changed. Dangers were seemed to be adventurous for him. However, when Mano was nine years old, there were some changes in him.

He began to avoid his friends and sought for loneliness. He avoided non-vegetarian food and he became very quiet. When his parents shifted to Ipoh, he chose a 'cherry tree' nearby his house to spend his time.

He sat below the tree and meditated for hours. Since the tree was hidden from the house, his parents did not know
about Mano's changes untill their neighbor informed Mdm Yasotha. She got worried about his practices and changes in his eating habits. She decided to stop him so she added some anchovies paste into his food and served it for lunch. Without doubts, Mano ate his lunch but he felt uneasy so he decided to take a short nap before doing his routine meditation.

Just as he closed his eyes, he heard the thunder roar and the weather changed fast and there was heavy downpour. Suddenly a fierce lightning struck his favorite tree and uprooted it. It came crushing down loudly and Mano felt strongly that there has been a fault. He confronted his mother and asked her about the food. She felt guilty about her deed and the sudden fall of the tree made her feel offended.

She told Mano the truth and warned him not to continue his new habits. She kept a close watch on him and as such Mano went back to his normal self - playful kid. He completed his primary education and continued his upper level. But his studies were disrupted due to poverty.

His father's income was insufficient to support the growing family. Sometimes there was not much to eat at home. To help his parents, Mano stopped school after completing his secondary one.
