When Kalam asked this question to his father, his father said that as a natural rule of co-existence human beings find company every time, when they felt alone or faced trouble or reached an impasse. He also said that the people who came to him in distress, he was but a go-between in their effort to propitiate demonic forces with prayers and offerings.

He also said one must understand the difference between a fear-ridden vision of destiny and the vision that enables him to seek the enemy of fulfillment within himself.
