GOD? The word followed by a question mark means a lot.


What is a form followed by the function Where? And inadequacies in its evidence fosters atheist to fulminate against theistic annotations.

What if you can see God and get her blessings? What if the phenomenon of Fatalism is proved for its existence? What if humans were given the powers to select god and then worship her?

I write this blog as a souvenir and based on guided information. Other ludicrous drivels are just some of my musings.

Kumari is a living goddess. She is believed to possess Kali in her.
Now who is this Kumari?

Shakya caste of people are closely related to Kali. Any girl from Shakya caste will be selected through various process of testing and she will be considered as living Goddess. She is made to stay in Kumar House and not allowed outside except in times of festivals. She is believed to possess kali in her and people will praise her as god until her first menstruation. After that she loses her purity and Kali no longer stays in her as they believe. She will return back home and unite with their family.

What kinda selection process it is?
The selection process is conducted by five senior Buddhist Vajracharya Priest. They are called the Pancha Buddha and I am not sure Whether Bodhi Dharman falls under any of its category and Kodambakkam leaks says Murugudas is planning to venture 8th sense with Kumari as its protagonist with Sun Pictures featuring and TR’s music. TR has already started his africa composition with his hands and thighs as membrane and beard for percussion. I am sure he is perfect percussionist.

On the eve of 8th birthday 32 test were performed on Girls belonging to Shakya caste as a preliminary round.

She must be in excellent health, never should have shed blood or been afflicted by diseases. She should be a girl who never lost her teeth (please don’t ask about her milk teeth cos I donno).

The guide was excited when describing her selection process,

“ neck like conch shell

Body like banyan tree (I have no idea what it means)

Eyelashes like a cow

Thighs like a deer

Chest like lion

Voice like a duck

Blah blah….. his further euphemistic exclamations and metaphorical retorts sounded familiar to me. Yes Director Bhagyaraj would describe her heroine in his movies in one of its kind!

Black hair and dainty hands could boost her with extra marks.

The selected candidates were further filtered with their horoscope. It was more or like a rejection panel.

Finally a few picked out candidates were checked for serenity and fearlessness in the selection finale. On the “ kalratri or Black night” (of course all nights are black only) the finalist were taken into taleju temple and released into a courtyard where 108 buffaloes and goats were sacrificed. The most terrifying test is she has to spend a night alone in the courtyard. (if 6 to 7 guys were present they would have started with their Dhum Briyani preparation). If she is not showing fear then she is selected as Kumari.

She is neither allowed to leave the house nor to let her feet touch the ground.

Once in a day she will show her presence through a window to all devotes and taking her photograph is considered as a criminal offence.

 The bald headed guy with gasconading gesture was our guide. This fervent guy was too exited about his eloquence and at one point of time we lost our interest and he stood like a Banyan tree with “ Yaaru illa kadaiku yaaru da tea aathura ” annotations.

it has always been a strange fetish in doing the don'ts

This will be her house until she loses her purity.

I tried to peep into her room with my 21 X optical zoom.  

Kumari makes no exception

Ok! I accept it was a bad photography.

The place where she flaunts her presence biennially

I left the place sadly as I couldn’t see a girl who is portrayed as living god.

But when I reached the road I saw a road side shopkeeper selling some images as a commercial by-product. To my astonishment they were selling kumari’s photo for money. Later I was consoled by the shopkeeper that she was ex-kumari and currently she was married with two children.

I took a snap of the snap and left place swiftly without listening to what the shop owner was chiding.

PS: I was immediately surrmounted by a battalion of military personnel with our Indian made Self loading Rifles(SLR) as I was accused of taking Kumari’s photograph. 

Alas with my power of eloquence i convinced them for a Facebook Wall Pic.

  1. Very nice depiction..!!!
    Those Humours were going out of the concept though made us laugh..!!!
    Well done Ananth..:-):-):-)

  2. wonderful issues altogether, you simply won a {logo new|a new} reader. What may you recommend in regards to your put up that you made a few days ago? Any positive?

  3. If you have not attached the photos, then everyone would have thought it s a fable. And why are the soldiers standing like side-dancers? But i like the climax.. :)

    1. That soiler's snap was another scenario. but i jus used it make it spicy.

  4. You should not offend someone's belief.. If you do not believe something that's quite okay.. But please do not serve half cooked stories about something like this. You don't seem to belong from the Aryan Origin, that's why you wont understand the significance and the underlying concept of these rituals. I don't blame you but will certainly blame your upbringing for being so inconsiderate.It may seem a superstition to you but you should keep your views to yourself. No one needs your Spiced up portrayal of sensitive issues as such.

    1. All contents elucidated are credential informations (except the military photo). None are cooked up stories. Infact some facts are effused and obliterated to mitigate the sensitiveness. I wonder why you are getting offended by the oblivious truth leave alone the tone of the post. If you really belong to the 'whatever' cast kindly refute the contents line-by-line.
      if "No one needs your spiced up portrayal" then why do you care?

  5. A man with Inheritance can be expected to act sensible to something like this.. As I said you are not expected to understand it, neither you posses such intellect nor the background. Hope with Gods grace you get some sensibility to be considerate enough not to offend people's belief. You are not asked to validate something by calling it truth, truth is something profound that the race as yours could not digest .I would not like to sound rude and and illiterate like you, but please learn to behave.

  6. I admire the immense inheritance you have bequeathed, especially the way you are being peevish when you cant digest the ugly truth. I am neither responsible for what you had taken personally nor how you are trying satiate your rage by hooting personally my friend, racism and theism are completely different. No wrong in being an atheist and neither I am in lieu of being racist. and thanks to beatify.
    u don't sound rude and illiterate but accidentally doing it.

    1. Looks as if you have discovered the ugly truth about yourself. That's self-realization my friend . Call me racist or call yourself theistic , Truth is I have the upper hand be it race or culture.

    2. finally my blog helped you to discover your upper hand.

  7. Dear Ananth, Shakya obviously knows more abou Kumari than both of us do, and he is right in many ways. Though it does seem only superstitions to an untrained mind, it 's more of a matter inexpressible in words, we call her a GODDESS, thats as much respect as a human can get. Our kings and presidents have to bow to her, and yet here you are, making jokes about the system. Obviously, your humor is extremely inappropriate to be displayed here, and it does hurt feelings. Hope you will be connsiderate enough about what you write. Thanks.

  8. Very interesting article. The kumari culture is inter related with mother Goddess cult of India. This culture in India lead the Tantrik cult, which another area of astonishment !
