Brain Damage

The Ramleela maidan is bustling with thousands of people. Year after year since eons, the very same day Ravana is brought to justice by Rama and larger than life sized effigy of Ravana are burnt. Dusshera festivity is in the air and the mela is in its full swing. We eat jalebis, samosas, kachoris, panipuri (and other ‘not so hygenic’ roadside stuff) and buy wooden swords, dhanush baan (bow and arrows), Hanuman gada, chakri, helicopter, cheap sunglasses and catapults, most of which would hardly survive a week. People celebrate the win of good over evil and all of us are happy since Ravana is dead. But, is he REALLY dead?

Not sure what one of the greatest news channel on Indian television was trying to depict; perhaps a claim that the mummification process dates back to Ramayana and was being falsified by the Egyptians?

Or a more “no nonsense, logic defying, evil dead” style reincarnation of Ravana?

I thank Arvind Trivedi for helping me visualize Ravana. The poor chap got killed by Arun Govil in Ramanand Sagar’s Ramayana! (Well, I have no right to call him a poor chap. He became a MP after that šŸ˜‰ )

    AajTak waale sach bol rahe hain….mujhe pooa yakeen hai…..kal usi channel pe Tantrik waale Baba ne bhi yehi bola tha…..keh rahe they ki agar ‘Om Ravnaay namah’ ka jaap 1008 baar kiya jaaye to Ravan ke khajaane se 1008 gold coins bhi mil sakti hai…….and since then I have been chanting … and would be soon leaving from SriLanka to claim my gold coins.
