Kannur | A priest felt the heat of administrative discipline when he dared to venture in to the world of technology from theĀ  abode of God. A facebook post by the priest Haridasan Namboothiri of the famous Rajarajeswara temple in Thaliparamba in Kannur district about the ill treatment to temple jumbos led to his suspension from the temple service.
Through his FB post the priest criticised the temple administration on their lapses with respect to the food needs of the jumbos. The mahouts protested the other day on the issue of non delivery of palm-leaves for the elephants. When the jumbos were not fed for three days a few elephant lovers brought the matter before the priest. One mahout also got suspension in the whole episode.
