This incident happened when infant Vallalar had gone Chidambaram Temple with the parents. When the screen opened to get NATARAJA darshan, Vallalar smiled cheerfully. Priest Appaya Deekshidar had looked attentively at infant' face and he talked to parents that this is not your child; He is Son (PILLAI) of NATARAJA (Lord of Chidambaram Temple).
