Building statues for yourself so that you would be remembered forever... craziest thing anybody can think of!!!
Mayawati is into a controversy for erecting a number of statues of herself and Kanshi Ram and her party symbol-elephant.Ask her why she did it and out comes the reply that it is to boost tourism in the state. Eppudi!! Room poattu yosippaingalo!!!
Anyways I'm concerned more about a similar issue but a more serious one which goes almost unnoticed। The rising number of temples in the country!We have 5 temples in our village alone -that is for a population of roughly 2000 people.. How many temples do we have already in India? What is the number of temples that are getting constructed in India every day? Isnt it enough to have one temple in one village or one area(Maybe their definition of one area varies a lot from mine!!)। What is the money spent on this every year.
The days of having religion based worshipping places are over। Now we have different ones for each castes. With the number of castes in India, cant imagine where this is heading to.My concern is as to why this issue goes unnoticed. Is it because we r not ready to question something related to God and people's strong belief? Shouldnt we be concerned abt this too?
Whenever people come asking for donation for temple construction, my dad says a plain NO! And he doesnt stop there. He advises them to use the money in building a school or a hospital instead. U should look at the expressions on their faces. Worth a million dollars!
