March 1, 2012

singlesThis is a shrine in Anegundi, Karnataka (across the Tungabhadra river from Hampi) where long-suffering parents who were worried about their still single (stubborn) kids came to ask the goddess for help. If you donated a statue in the image of your child and placed it just so, apparently they’d get hitched pronto. And the four of us single women took in this view and digested the tale and laughed.

    hahaha! good one. reminds me of a shrine of Shiva somewhere in Madhya Pradesh, went there with two of my friends back in the 90s. we were explicitly told to eat some of the ash in that temple so we would have “husband like Lord Shiva.” will keep you posted!
