Krishan Kant faints in temple

KURNOOL, NOV. 1. The Vice-President, Mr. Krishan Kant, fainted in the Sri Mallikarjuna Swamy temple at Srisailam on Thursday after ``Rudrahomam''. His personal physician attended on him before a panel of waiting doctors provided medical help.

The doctors said Mr. Kant's blood sugar level dipped as he took part in the rituals without taking the morning meal and spent over two-and-half hours near the fire and smoke where the `homam' was performed. Mr. Kant regained consciousness after a few minutes and later walked to the Addala Mantapam where he was blessed by the priests.
