Rani Rashmoni: 5 times we couldn’t help but believe that Gadadhar Chattopadhyay is the goddess’ chosen one
Gadadhar Chattopadhyay’s interactions with Maa Kali are so miraculous, it is tough to not believe he is her chosen one.
Rani Rashmoni stars Ditipriya Roy as Rani Maa, Sourav Saha as Gadadhar Chattopadhyay and Gourab Chatterjee as Mathurbabu in lead roles. The show is a period drama based on true events from Rani Rashmoni’s real life. Rani Maa appointed Gadadhar as the priest of the Dakshineshwar Kali Temple. And, Gadadhar’s connection with Maa Kali is so deep and ethereal, it almost seems like he is her one true pick.
Watch what will happen next on Rani Rashmoni here:
1. Gadadhar’s lamp lit up but Haran Thakur’s blew out
Recently, Rani Maa was brutally hurt by the men of a zamindar and fell unconscious for days. To pray for her recovery, Haran Thakur tried to worship Maa Kali and asked Gadadhar to step outside. However, the lamp in his hand suddenly blew out. But later, when Gadadhar picked it up and began praying, the lamp lit up immediately. Coincidence? We think not.
2. Only Gadadhar could see Maa Kali
Gadadhar was once seen dedicatedly praying to Maa Kali asking her to accept the prasad and satisfy her hunger. In a while, Maa Kali responded and appeared in front of him while he continued singing to her. But when Shibananda saw him singing and offering her food, he threw away the plate, unable to see the Goddess.
3. Maa Kali’s concern for Gadadhar’s life
When Shibananda was hurt, Gadadhar had constantly prayed to the Goddess, asking for his recovery. Upon getting no response from her, he attempted to take his own life when Maa Kali immediately appeared to stop him from doing so.
4. Maa Kali’s ways of enlightening Gadadhar
Gadadhar had once denied worshipping Goddess Durga. Then, Maa Kali opted for an intelligent way to help him understand that Maa Durga was just another form of herself. Her idol disappeared from the temple room. Later, she came back in the form of Maa Durga and explained to him how he should worship both forms of shakti with the same devotion.
5. Maa Kali openly expresses her wishes to him
Maa Kali’s wishes are everything to Gadadhar Chattopadhyay. So when he prayed to her and asked her what she wanted when Lakshmi Puja approached, she paid him a visit. Maa Kali then told him how she would love to be worshipped in the form of Maa Lakshmi too and Gadadhar fulfilled this wish of the Goddess.
