Love affair behind missing of Ayyappa vrithadhari ?
PADUBIDRI : The reported missing of Yogish Achari(24), an Ayyappa Vrithadhari from Uchila Bada village, has taken a new turn with rumours doing the rounds in the village that a love affair had led to his missing. The youth went missing on Tuesday and a complaint was lodged after the calls made to his mobile were not received.
It has been gathered that he was in love with a young lady of Mangalore and was seen often talking to his sweet heart over mobile even after he became an Ayyappa Vrithadhari. Though his act was objected by other vrithadharis, he, it is learnt, had cared least for the same.
He became an Ayyappa vrithadhari to ditch his lover !
KUNDAPUR : If a Muslim youth became an Ayyappa vrithadhari for the sake of his Hindu betterhalf in Mangalore ; in Kundapur, a youth reportedly became an Ayyappa Vrithadhari only to ditch his lady love.
Rumours are presently doing the rounds in Kundapur that a young woman named Deepa who was working for the Om Tiles Decoration showroom in Kundapur, ended her life after her lover ditched her and became an Ayyappa Vrithadhari just to avoid her.
The young woman named Deepa, the only daughter of her parents, was working in the showroom to assist her poor family which was taken care of by her mother by doing coolie works. Her father was bedridden.
But Deepa fell in love with a young man who reportedly refused to marry her despite her ardent pleas. Sources reveal that Deepa was in a very sullen mood one week prior to her death and was seen crying and speaking over mobile with someone.
However, on Friday afternoon, she consumed poison in the bathroom of her house and died while being taken to the hospital.
It is being said that she chose to commit suicide out of frustration as the youth refused to marry her and instead became an Ayyappa Vrithadhari only to avoid her.
But it is still not clear if this was the exact cause of her suicide.
A canine Ayyappa Vrithadhari
HONNAVARA: As Makara Sankramana is nearing, Ayyappa vrithadharis are making a beeline to the abode of Ayyappa Swami at Shabarimale.

Here there is a canine Ayyappa Vrithadhari which is all set and is a part of a team of Ayyappa Vrithadharis which is on way to Shabarimale by foot.
The dog name “Manikanta’ with a black robe tied around its neck was a part of the 10 member team of Vrithadharis which was passing through the National Highway 17 at Honnavara on Monday. The team from Bambulavada in Chikkodi had left its place on December 2.
When one of them Parashurama was enquired about the dog along with them he said the dog too was a part of the team. It seems the dog also adhered to the strict disciplinary code of Ayyappa Vrithadharis and has bath every morning.
