Rs. 587500 Crores Indian Rupees were siphoned out of the country between 2000 and 2008 & these funds were meant for the uplift of Poor Indians.

As the news spread that a Lemon fruit (Nimbu) has taken the shape of Lord Ganesha, people across the city started thronging the house of Doctor Sahib. Lo!!! people started chanting prayers & started bowing to Lemon fruit which was appearing to be in the shape of Lord Ganesha. Everyone was saying that it is a miracle of God that He has taken the shape of Lemon fruit (Nimbu). Seeing that now a days Lord Ganesha prayers are in full fervor in India, devotion towards this Lemon fruit, which is appearing to be in the shape of Lord Ganesha, is but natural.
