As the Coronavirus pandemic makes it presence felt worldwide, Netizens have been wondering whether the shutdown of the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthnam was predicted by a seer in the past. The words of Bramhamgaru, are going viral in social media. Pothuluri Veerbrahmendra Swami, popular known in the Telugu world simply as Brahmamgaru, was a seventeenth century seer, sage, and poet. he is sometimes called the "Indian Nostradamus", and he is said to have predicted the shut down of the iconic Venkateshwara shrine in the hills.
Brahmamgaru apparently predicted that a pandemic would sweep the globe, killing dozens of people and forcing the temple to shut down. The Vaishnava shrine, in the past, has weathered multiple epidemics, including SARS and H1N1, without closing, and it was widely considered well-nigh impossible that this should occur. as the TTD closed its doors to pilgrims for the first time in decades, large sections of the internet are going gaga over the seer's supposed prediction
Brahmamgaru is not the only seer whose predictions are making the rounds. the Internet is already abuzz with suggestions that Nostradamus foresaw the panemic, and specifically its effect on Rome. Anoter conspiracy theory suggests that a major epidemic attacks the glove every hudred years. The latter theory cites, as its evidence, the fact that attacks of Spanish Flu, Asiatic Cholera, and Influenza shook the globe respectively in 1720, 1820, and 1920. Nonetheless, predicitons aside, governements and individuals are taking concrete steps to overcome the virus; It is hoped that other predictions - that the virus will soon fade away - will also be proved accurate.
