One day a yogi with grey hair, in the guise of a mad man fascinated the young Sai Kumar. Children passing by, pelted stones at Him assuming Him to be mad. He in turn started pelting stones and spitting at them. But for the young Sai Kumar, He did not seem to be an insane person. He experienced an instant connection between both of them and started skipping school and followed Him regularly. The yogi would discourage him from this by pelting stones and spittingspitting at him.Undeterred by all this, Sai Kumar continued to follow Him. One fine day, he reached an isolated place in Athvelli village in Medchal taluq of Ranga Reddy district of Telangana State.
