Kanjamalai, Salem - Siddheshwarar Temple

Siddhar Temple in Kanjamalai, Salem - Chitra Pournami 

Kanjamalai is a hill located 14 km west of Salem District of Tamil NaduIndia
There is a Siddhar temple on the hill and there is also a Murugan temple. The shiva temple is called Siddheshwarar Temple. It seems Kalangi Nathar (guru of Bhogar) has lived here and was also called as Kanja Malai Siddhar

There is a belief that many Siddhars still live there and on Chitra Pournami they perform special abhishekam and poojas near the waterfalls and Siddheswarar temple. They then worship Lord Shiva in the form of Stars (Kanjamalai Nakshtras) and circumambulate the mountain 

The Stars can be seen on Chitra Pournami from 11:00 pm to 4:00 am and fade away. That's Siddhars Girivalam 

The estimated terrain elevation above sea level is about 643 metres.

Is Devyani Khobragade episode India's reaction to Sonia Gandhi's Summons

Sonia Gandhi US Court Summons - Indian Government reacts through a pawn - Devyani Khobragade

Never before you would have seen a hue and cry by senior Indian Ministers over mistreatment of an diplomat in US. There were lot of Indians who were humiliated. President A P J Abdul Kalam was frisked in the US in 2011. In 2010, India’s U.N. envoy, Hardeep Puri,who wore a turban for religious reasons, was reportedly asked to remove it during an airport security check. In the same year Indian ambassador Meera Shankar was taken to another room and strip searched because she was wearing a sari. All these had reactions but not the one like Devyani Khobragade

Sonia Gandhi Summoned

Congress president Sonia Gandhi was served a US court summons in hospital, in a case accusing her of shielding party leaders allegedly involved in the anti-Sikh riots of 1984. This summons doesn't allow Sonia Gandhi to enter US without being arrested. Since she is not a government figure (PM or President), she doesn't have the immunity. The Congress government in India seems to have taken this up with Mr John Kerry. However, Mr Kerry refused to interfere

This leaves Smt Sonia Gandhi with no choice for continuing her medical treatment in U.S. This has irked the government a lot and the reaction came in the form of Devyani Khobragade
