I am sure you folks had a fantastic Diwali 🙂
Vasan wrote a nice post here.Read it 🙂
Now that the niceties are done lets get down to some probably sacrilegious devil’s advocacy !
The 2 major stories of Diwali are Lord Ram returning to Ayodhya and Narakasura getting his a** kicked
Think of this!
Women Empowerment: Narakasura the demon is finally killed by Satyabhama the queen of Lord Krishna (an incarnation of GOD)
Women Degradation: Also, Lord Ram (again an incarnation of GOD )kicks his pregnant wife out just because some random toilet-cleaner said something about her character.
That leads me to ask the question !! Is God A hypocrite ? 😦
ps: Blasphemy! Blasphemy !
ps1: Not really a Diwali post …more like looking at the moral contradictions in HIndu paganism
ps2: My third consecutive year of not bursting crackers.
ps3: IIMC has a diwali function this weekend (postponed from the DIwali day due to mid terms for first-years) Will wear traditional gult dress 🙂
