KALI MA OF CULCUTTA
The Prime seat of Sakteism

INTRODUCTION

Who is superior to whom-the Creator or the created? Which is mightier to what the mover or the moved? Who deserves adoration first, the Primordial Being or His product? This questionnaire may easily be posed, but can't be answered to the total satisfaction of the sensory organs. Logical explanations and figurative flourish may shut the mouth, only to throw open the doors of the mind to brood over them endlessly, restlessly, timelessly, resulting in answerlessly, to speak the truth. Hoary books-the repositories of the concentrated wisdom of Maharshis, affirm with examples from the life of the august divine personage of no mean distinction as Lord Maheswara that the Mover and moved-man and woman, Sivam and Shakthi are equal, one does not exist independently of the other; their interdependence and reciprocal regard should be upheld and implemented, as exemplified by sharing of his half body to Mother Sati. It is mythologically honourable, but practically impracticable in the society of the days then or now. So it is rarely implemented, nay blatantly and deliberately derecognised, dishonored, discarded, denigrated, desecrated and what not. Not by a negligible few, but a percentage touching the centum with an usual quota of exceptions, perhaps. Does this not mirror the impracticability of the truth expounded? Or embodying some snag? Or likely a bias deliberately imposed upon? Male chauvanism is totally, ruthlessly and openly holding this up to ridicule and subjugating woman to untold hardships, or public humiliation to such an extent that neither the ruling authority with military might, nor spiritual force of all the gods supporting the reformers and pravaktas has done anything in this?
