Kendrapada, Mar 14 (UNI) Silence is certainly the best medium for a person to enhance power within oneself but not for a tailor of this coastal parts of Orissa.
Rather it has proved a curse for 55-year-old Madan Das, the owner of Paradeep-based Roy tailor, as he has lost his speech power capacity.
The fate plays a cruel joke on his fortune by making him dumb.
Had he known that he has to face such a fate by becoming dumb, he would have not tried to strengthen his mental and physical power within himself by taking a vow to remain mum.
Such a case has recently come to the limelight in the Paradeep port township area.
Madan Das, a native of Kharnashi village under Kendrapara, has been residing at Madhuban Housing board colony in Port town Paradeep since last one and a half decade and eking out his living by stitching clothes.
He took a vow 20 years back while in West Bengal to remain mum in a bid to strengthen his physical and mental power. But such a decision cost his life more miserable after five years when he lost his speaking power.
Madan, father of three children, came to know from a one Niranjan Baba that one would able to increase his mental and physical power if one remain silent for a long period.
Influenced by the words of Niranjan Baba, the tailor adopted the formula of remaining silent. But after five years when he wanted to speak, he found himself unable to deliver his speech.
Not only Madan lost his speaking capacity but also his brain did not function normally as he also lost his memory for being remaining quiet for a long period.
After spending huge money on Madan's treatment, the family members finally lost all hopes that he would be able to speak in his life.
When contacted a medicine practitioner claimed that given a proper treatment, Madan might regain his speech power but abject poverty stands as a barrier in Madan's treatment.
