  GRAMA DEVATHAS

In a village called Chandragutti in Karnataka males and females too go in procession through the streets and round the temple minus dress but covering all over the bodies with neem leaves strung fashioned into garlands. Carrying on head or hands Fire pots adding oil and twigs contranuously throughout the procession is a very common feature in Tamil Nadu and is neighbouring states. As the arc of human enguinity has not become circle many gruesome traditions likely be added to the list. Ironical it appears, votaries standing the physical torture await their recurrence and jubilantly participate undergoing the most agonizing mortal suffering. Exhibition of such devotion purifies bodies, elevates minds and emancipates them with out any trace of doubt or distraught. This is India ness pure and untainted in state. Science cannot stop, nor authority bars its continuation. And they proclaim, it is divine injunction to be implemented with tacit assent rather than questioned or abrogated. Their steadfast belief is giving them infinite relief. Age changes not nor 'progress stops not, aren't these pure children of the soil stand better than the tremendously advanced atheists dangling in the air deprived of further assent or denied of earthly base? It is the fate of skepticism.
