In General

What you see in my hand isn’t a packet of washing powder or cooking oil, though you’ll easily be forgiven if you thought so. What you see is utter commercializaton and sheer disregard for sensibilities.

The packet in my hand contains “Theertam” or holy water from the river Ganga, if you were to believe what they tell you.

The packet is a freebie for those who buy a spiritual magazine called Bhakti. How soon before someone decides to put a price tag and begins to sell the ‘theertams’.

It’s all such a sham.
