Visa God

Tere dwar khada ek applicant :-)  Got this as an email fwd.
 


TBG, please do visit this place. Would want a 1st hand account of this chamatkar :-)


That reminds me, some time back a friend was telling him how he had visited a temple in Hyderabad when he had applied for his visa/work permit - Chilkur Balaji temple..also widely known as the Balaji Visa temple. It's believed that praying to this god at this temple, will get your visa in no time. More than 1 lac devotees visit this place every week in hope their visa will be processed and they can head to the land of their dreams...wonder what the US visa authority may have to say to this...hmmm

Now, you know where to head when you file your visa papers :-)

Edited to add: TBG was very nice and took out time to visit this place and this is what he found.
