Balakrishnan was surprised and it was too much for a 16 year old boy to witness and digest. But he was fated to witness and digest such miracle journey throughout his lifetime. Out of curiosity, he asked Garuda Siddhar how was this possible to bring ripe bananas in an empty peel which he threw away. Garuda Siddhar gracefully replied that anything was possible by him as he was a Siddhar (Saint). Then, Balakrishnan requested his Guru to teach him such miracle.
