It’s that time of the year again. When I spend ten days amidst you.
It’s time for fun and frolic, when entire communities get together to celebrate my birthday. It is time for feasts at home, a time when the entire locality is out on the streets, when the roads are a myriad mix of colours, joy, and ecstacy.
However, there’s something I’d like as a Birthday Gift this year.
You are all devoted, and revere and love me with all your hearts. I know that. But have you thought about what you do during these ten days?
And finally, there’s the issue of what you do to me. You worship me for ten days, offer me laddoos (which I love, thank you for that!), but then, at the end of ten days, you dump me in a lake or river.
