Bengaluru: “Today I was late for the flag-hoisting. So I told the sun not to come out till I was done with the flag hoisting. And the sun came out 40 minutes late. It was not because of clouds, but because I told the sun,” said Bidadi Nithyananda Ashram's seer Nithyananda, speaking to his devotees in Bidadi, Bengaluru.
