Just read an article about some lady who went into Shabarimala temple and touched the idol…
So many people have stood against her and are outrageously filling court cases against her.
Why? Because, any lady in the age of 10-50 isn’t allowed to enter the premises of that temple. There are many Aiyappa temples elsewhere in the country wherein everyone (read everyone) is allowed to go and worship. I am quite surprised as to why they have singled out Shabarimala temple for that reason? Some say there is some long followed tradition behind it, some say it as their duty to respect the ritual that is followed for ages, and some are equally clueless as to why this is accepted on the face of it, etc.
Also heard is ‘dev Prashnam’ in the same connection, which is prescribed by tantriks through which it is possible to read deity’s mind at shabarimala in order to find out if some wrong doing is done….!!!! Reading God’s mind… now that is something…!!! Wow….
God is no longer an omnipresent force I feel..!!!! It feels like he is one amongst us… People fighting for him for some lady encroached upon his private property and they all feel that he has taken it to heart since he never likes any woman in his property…. a dialogue echoes in my mind…‘Tune mere ghar me kadam kaise rakha, teri itni himmat…???’
I am just wondering what’s next….
There is already land legally in the name of Prabhu Shri Ramchandra at Ayodhya… and guess what he fought a battle for 17 long years to finally get that small piece of land… it feels as if God was so helpless that he had to actually go through the famous Indian judicial system to acquire this feat!!!
I feel that, the day is not far when the God would be summoned to be present in the court room in order to give statement for his stand….
Its people who make a God out of an ordinary human being and its people who make an ordinary human being out of a God…
Tedhi hai par kya kare…public hai…
