All this is irrelevant. Its private property and govt has no right to confiscate it.

Yes he is right, because we have opened a lid for risk, because now the whole world knows what lies inside the vaults

It is high time the govt authorities stopped believing in such rumours and confiscate all the wealth and use it for public welfare.

We even have dieties having bank account and PAN card. Let all Lords think like that. There is a saying in Kerala which goes as "though God is willing, priest is not (willing)". Hope this 'fact' will not work out and the treasure siphoned off the temple by the political priests.

Wrath of God and all are on the eyes of the believer. It will be interesting to see how the Supreme Court handle the 'wrath'.

It's true from the point of view of the former rulers and their successors as they believed and acted as the servant of Sri Padmanabha and showing many human qualities not exhibited by their counter parts in India and the entire world. People were very happy and respectful to them. Whether the deity will be displeased or not, the entire Keralite population (except a few pseudo secularists) will be unhappy if the wealth is taken away from the temple. They feel that the opinion of the erstwhile ruler family has to be respected and honoured. The former rulers commanded the respect and affection of the people by their life style and devotion to Padmanabha and by demand as happened elsewhere. The people are exhibiting their gratitude and it should not be disallowed.
