Seeing the stone he decided to sharpen his machet (dao) on it. When he did so, a kind of liquid like substance oozed out from the stone. He was very much surprised and returned home after collecting the cane. On that night he saw a dream where a Saint appeared before him and said that, "I am the stone where you had sharpen your machet (dao) today and, I am Lord Shiva, so kindly inform the villagers".
