Edulapur hillock in Kalvasrirampur district. Andra Pradesh, India

The water keeps coming out of the Nandi’s mouth continuously if we keep on clapping.

KARIMNAGAR: Parched throat on a scorching summer day. To slake your thirst, all you need do clap your hands and cup them. Sounds incredible but is true.

Water, good for drinking and even having medicinal value, according to some with a strong belief, comes out of `Mahanandi’ (vehicle of Lord Siva) at Edulapur hillock in Kalvasrirampur mandal of the district.

The water keeps coming out of the Nandi’s mouth continuously if we keep on clapping. The water flow does not diminish even during severe droughts. More surprising, the quantity of water keeps increasing with the loudness of clapping.

However, not many people know of this miracle. People of neighbouring villages mostly visit the rock (to which the nandi’s face is attached) during the auspicious Sravana and Karthika months and offer prayers to the Nandi and Lord Siva.

But none have been able to unravel the mystery, so far, behind the continuous supply of water, irrespective of the season. People on the plains near the `Mahanandi’, who are unable to strike water even after digging hundreds of feet into the ground, wonder how water is being continously supplied even at a greater height. But carrying downhill is a difficult proposition on account of the rutted and bumpy track. Surprisingly, even the Archaeology, Tourism and district authorities concerned also have not visited the Nandi till now.

“But wild animals visit the place frequently for quenching their thirst,’’ said Sunil, belonging to a village nearby.

``Some people also consider the water as a medicine for fevers, aches and pains,’’ he added.

There is a belief that the arrangement might have been designed during the Kakatiya dynasty.

People of surrounding villages have been urging the district administration and Archaeology Department to take initiatives for developing the hillock as a tourist spot.

Speaking to this paper, several villagers hoped proper road and amenities were likely to enhance the number of visitors to the place
