There are already 330 million Gods in the Hindu pantheon and are still growing. For many therefore it’s not surprising that icons of millions Amitabh Bachchan, Sachin and Mr. Modi, are the latest candidates to join this grand Hindu panoply.
We feel bizarre because Indians have been worshipping living humans. The curiosity in us has grew with time as to why do we have to build shrines of people who haven’t done a thing for us. May be Sachin is considered the god of cricket, similarly Amitabh is the God of acting and Narendra Modi today is considered the God of the country, but isn’t this hilarious we are building the shrines of humans who aren’t even happy with such deeds.
Narender Modi twitter read “Have seen news about a Temple being built in my name. I was appalled,”
India is a country of myths, superstitions and a&&###s. People have built a temple of Sachin in Bihar, Amitabh in Kolkata and recently Mr. Modi in Gujarat.
You have beliefs in gods and it works , you go to the temple, bribe your god and might get something good out of it, but do you really think would praying in front of Sachin, Amitabh or Modi’s statue help ?
Do you think praying in front of Sachin would get you entry into the Cricket world?
Or Bribing Amitabh’s statue will give you a chance to work with Amitabh in a movie like Amitabh Bachchan hits? Cherry on the cake, may be if you pray to Mr. Modi you might become the PM?
But But But, the wishes sometimes fail as well. Think the other side of your prayings.
Praying in front of Sachin might give you short height? Amitabh’s blessing might give you a son like Abhishek or Modi’s gift might give you a misfortune like his wife.
Well if these are the consequences, I would never ever suggest anyone to even look at these great personalities.
The hilarious things out of all these was that Sanjay Patodia (the person who constructed Amitabh’s temple said ‘’I don’t like the word fan. I am a devotee’’
Ewwwwe what do you mean by that dude. Get a life.
Things can turn upside town, tipsy topsy and you might just dwell into the deepest well.
Nothing is going to change by building such temples. It will just ruin resources and money.
Whosoever worships human gods and builds temples for the living humans need to know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells amidst you.
