The Pious and their ways…

5 October 2011 No Comment

A seemingly Goan/Anglo Indian/ Mangalorean/Christian lady came into the lobby of this bank I was in and was curious about the ganesh statue. She went closer to touch him. As she sought the elevator,the receptionist called out to her in front of everyone n announced loudly ‘Our god does not like shoes,please take them off when you go near him’

hmmm…

was that necessary?

To embarrass that lady n then to display power over god. Is god ours and yours? who does god belong to?

Are shoes really Ganesha’s biggest problems?

Was taking off shoes just someones way of marking reverence that eventually became a dictat ?
