The Gods are cold

India’s poverty of the masses is ostensible from her name itself. What we are rich in and have in abundance is:

Firstly, heritage that attracts philocalists around and outside the globe, and secondly, hypocrisy that is too great for even our monuments to hold. Abound in this great country, too many people, bound in too many religions, all professing the one true salvation. Yet often these two diverse elements hybrid and intertwine to form one massive Yggdrasil, which has stood its ground amidst the tsunami of modernization, and has borne apples which supports life not, but stupefies.

Janki Ghat Bada Sthan temple situated in Ayodhya, India, to save their idols from this harsh winter has installed heaters and are bathed with hot water, while people die on the streets of this country every day out of cold and hunger.

The rich citizens of this country never seem to have money when it comes to paying taxes but are possessed by the Goddess of wealth when it comes to appease their sense of guilt through temples, or using them as a means of funneling Black Money.

  1. Well, I would say India is at much better position than its counterparts. Though there are some issues, and I’m very hopeful that young Indians would definitely change things for better.

      1. Any country is just an imagined entity and people are real actors if they want to progress then they have to do things by themselves. Self help is the most natural rule.

      2. Well, he is history who helped India to achieve independence. His role in nation building is still cherished by people. And in rule based society, laws/constitution are more important than any single person. That’s what democracy too stands for.

  2. Democracy… Yeah every one who wants to cause damage to public property can do so freely… He has right to speech n expression no? But no you can’t talk freely about your views as a director or writer. Great!!

  3. It’s really good to see someone writing so openly about such issues. Yes they really need to come under the notice of masses else India will not really be independent for next five decades to come.

    1. People who openly criticize such deeds are ostracized by their own family, because ‘GOD’.
      Tell a man that the paint is wet, he’ll need to touch it to believe it.
      Tell him there is an invisible man in the sky who controls everything and he will have faith

      1. I agree with you completely. Hypocrisy is in our veins. The latest example being padmavat’s release. It’s not justifiable to let people know about our glorious past but it’s completely fine to burn school buses.☹
