The festive season is back again. Today the pious festival of Dusshara or Durga Puja or Navratri, whatever you want to call, has commenced. The aroma in the atmosphere is making me energetic. In spite of cold and cough, I’m feeling excited. Now the nine days will pass very smoothly in worshiping the Goddess Durga and her various forms. Since childhood, we are being taught that Durga Puja or Dusshara symbolises the victory of truth on evil.
But I have few questions in my mind. Have we killed the devil inside us? Still we are bounded my so many evils that we don't think that we are doing anything wrong. Once I read a news article that stated that who says that the milk has become costlier? Many people are going to temples and are pouring milk on the God Shiva’s idol. People are buying milk at any cost in the name of religious rituals. I’m not against the religion. But I’m saying that why can’t we give the milk to the poor beggars who are sitting outside the temple in all weathers. Now the so call Babas and Maatas have make religion as their business. For everything the devotees has to pay huge amounts in the ashrams of these Babas and Maatas.
In which Holy Scriptures it’s written that God will bless those who will waste money and resources like this and leave fellow humans starving? Isn’t it written in the Holy Scriptures that all living beings are having God in it? Then why are we differentiating so much amongst ourselves? Still we have many evils inside us. Let’s pray to Goddess Durga to give us the strength to kill the evils inside us.
