A priest, who was second in-charge at the famous, Sksheera Ramalingeswara Swamy temple, at Palakollu in West Godavari district, died in the temple premises, early this morning. While family members are in a state of shock, the devotees and others are seeing this as good sign for the priest as today is considered by them as very auspicious. The priest was very busy with Karthika month pujas and arrangements. He was awake in wee hours this morning and even spoke to mediamen about the significance of this day in Telugu calendar. However as he stepped out after a worship, he collapsed.
