“The best documented paranormal phenomenon of modern times.”
Never before in history has a simultaneous miracle occurred on such a global scale.
Television stations (among them CNN and BBC), radio and newspapers
(among them Washington post, New York Times, The Guardian and Daily Express)
eagerly covered this unique phenomenon, and even sceptical journalists
held their milk-filled spoons to the statues of gods - and watched as the milk disappeared.
It all began on September 21st when an otherwise ordinary man in New Delhi
dreamt that Lord Ganesha, the elephant-headed God of Wisdom, craved a little milk.
Upon awakening, he rushed in the dark before dawn to the nearest temple,
where a skeptical priest allowed him to proffer a spoonful of milk to the small stone image.
Both watched in astonishment as it disappeared, magically consumed by the God.
What followed is unprecedented in modern Hindu history.
Within hours news had spread like a brush fire across India that Ganesha was accepting milk offerings.
Tens of millions of people of all ages flocked to the nation's temples.
The unworldly happening brought worldly New Delhi to a standstill, and its vast stocks of milk
- more than a million liters - sold out within hours.
Just as suddenly as it started in India, it stopped in just 24 hours.
