  GRAMA DEVATHAS

With due deference, it is to he emphasized that the rural folk were free from this. Hence continued their mode of adoration in the manner they were accustomed to and style suiting their untainted wisdom. Their strength lay in their simplicity and that gave an uninterrupted lease of life to the beliefs and tastes. And lo! it stood firm against the adverse forces. It is all due to their credulousness sprouting from the implicit faith in the omnipotence of the the highest God. Not only they consciously recognised it but unashamedly carried on with boundless zeal. Unfortunately some crooks entering the field introduced certain nauseating practices to boost their image. In course of time they got solidified as it were, and tarred the fair and sweet face of theism. Drawing the small cart for miles with an iron chain hooked into fleche of the back, going round the temple dangling by a device, walking on burning charcoal, besides the awful practice offering live beasts and birds. This awe-some practice did not confine itself to far off villages, but encircled the urban areas claiming votaries from same and literate public.
