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.

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.
