In the cheque, the man first wrote 10 as donation. However, he then went on to add the exuberant amount. Initially, the temple authority was shocked to see the amount as no devotee has ever made such a large donation. However, little did they know that they were in for another shock. When they went to the bank to deposit it, they were informed that the man only had a balance of 17 in his account.
