Over the months, Sabi found a connection with Swami Ayyaapan, the revered deity of Sabarimala. Like Manikandan, a boy of her age, Sabi too was on a journey of learning. Manikandan practiced martial arts with a mentor, reminding her of Seido Karate. Manikandan was no superhero with superpowers and the ability to fly; he was simply a dedicated human being who transformed into Swami Ayyappan through persistent effort.
During a visit to the Ayyaapan temple in Delhi, Sabi chose to wear Indic outfit, complete with a bow and arrow. It was her unique way of embracing her beliefs.
