Yesterday, I uploaded a post based on my photos about Ganeshji Visarjan, and what happens when unawares we do not follow religion in the correct way. This particular thought was on my mind all through the day and at night too. I felt disturbed at how the Gods are also being marketed and subjected to wrong ways of religion for commercial gains of some.
It is Sunday today, and I normally go early mornings for a walk with my camera. These few photos that came to me are as if God Urja is giving me proof of what has been on my mind for the past 24 hours. I completely believe that everything happens for a reason. This is what God made me a witness of:
As I walked along, photographing the Visarjit Ganpati and Gauri Murtis, lying unprotected and broken by the sea side, (There has been a Visarjan couple of days back), I came upon a Ganeshji, standing alone and isolated. As I focused on It to click a photo, I saw a dog come from behind Him who began to sniff the Murti. I thought it might be hungry and searching for some food. To my horror, the dog had other intentions and did right on Ganpati Baba what dogs normally do on the road lamp posts and calmly walked away.
Because I had my camera focused and ready I have been able to get these photos. The play and scene was over in a couple of seconds. I felt ashamed and shocked at what I had just been a witness to! Right before my eyes and my camera lens, Shree Ganpati Bappa proved the in-sensitiveness of Hindus.
These photos are very disturbing and a proof from the Gods to immediately bring about a drastic change in our system of beliefs and values. Maybe it is time to question ourselves and try looking for what the reality might actually be.
There were hundreds of people here today and none witnessed this scene. I said a silent sorry to all the Ganpati and Gauri Murtis lying around, broken and disfigured and left the beach.
Its as if God is saying to me, “Look, what you wrote yesterday (Prequel to this post) is very correct; just take a look at this and show all my bhakts what really happens to us”.
I feel it is my responsibility to upload these photos, as I have been made a witness by God and given the proof in these photos.
Being a writer and a photographer, I have done my part. It is now you who can spread it so that it gets to the right activist and the politician who will be able to implement the right laws and make sure that Ganpati festival is celebrated in the right way for the right purpose.
I ask forgiveness from the Divine Shaktis from all bhakts.
Photos from today morning. Let me warn you they are very, very upsetting as truths are always very bitter. A photo speaks more than any write up or protest.
Please do not use these photos without proper source credit.
