Fortunately Sri Bhaskararaya had come to Bhalki on yathra and heard the incidence through wife of sri chandrasena. The queen immediately pointed out the controversial predictions. On a later day Sri Bhaskararaya also came there and the queen asked Raya the same question since she was not happy with the prediction of a female child.
