Sacred and Simple πŸ™

Temples,
Simple and sacred
Stand in wait
To welcome
The grateful. And
The weary… .

A Solution to Every Problem πŸ˜

Ward off the evil eye

With chillies and lime

Yes, it works…

Everytime!
You will find them

In most unlikely places

Like on zipping autos

And hole in the wall spaces
Everything will be fine

It seems to reassure

Take your reckless chances

Of protection, you can be sure! 😊

Colours of FaithΒ 

This season sees a multitude of men and women undertake a journey by foot, walking hundreds of miles sometimes, to collect the pure water of the Ganges in Haridwar and take it back to their villages and towns to bathe their family deities with that water. 

They never keep their beautifully decorated water carriers on the ground. Good samiritans and the government provide rest stations with stands made in them where they place their pure water, rest, eat and carry on with their journey…. Sometimes alone and in small groups at other times… 

It’s a show of their faith and quite a few walk bare foot…
