Bhagavan's Father Sundaram Iyer's Photograph
« on: July 23, 2009, 02:23:15 PM »
On 28th May 1946, Mrs. Ranga Iyer sang almost the whole of the
book Ramanamritam, composed by her son about the "marriage"
of Bhagavan Ramana to Jnana.  Bhagavan listened very graciously.
One of the songs referred to an incident in His fifth or sixth year,
when for something that He had done, His father said:  "Take away
His cloth and drive Him out!"  I asked about this and it led Him to
talk about those early years and about a group photograph of His
father and others that was taken in the hospital compound and
another that was taken later of Himself with His uncle.  He also
said that it was from a copy of the group photograph with His father, recovered from Ranga Iyer's house, that we got the photograph of
His father that hangs in the dining hall, but the other photograph,
the one with Bhagavan in it, had been lost.
