God must be having a headache!!

Alas – poor him – human’s at least have a way out – they can pray to God – Poor God – what would he do?

No – this is not a mockery of God. This is what happened today morning at 4:30 AM.

Out of the blue (er black), there is this blast of really loud incantations, apparently to worship the local god of the area I live in – 4:30 AM – Phew – and I don’t think it’s pleasant for anyone, leave alone God for a nasal toned, yucky sounding babbling woman sing apparent praises to wakeup the deity !

My house is quite a distance from the nearby temple, but the volume – I guess could have bet a Rock Show “mics down” – and after 20 mins of crooning, comes along a dubbed tape of forced lyrics on a latest film track – I don’t know if the deity there were worshipping would have been pleased with this effort, but atleast some 200 families in 1 KM radius would have cursed both this lady, the temple and that deity who put-up with such nonsense.

Where does sense and sensibility go? – If you want to worship your deity –pls do – why cause a huge sound to everyone around at an un-godly hour??

come to delhi and we'll make you attend some jagraatas.. that's an all nighter.
The upshot will be the number of filmy devotional songs you get to hear & endure
