    Hi there,
    It seems you are both disagreeing with my story and the traditions described therein. Please note that this story is an account of my visit to the Dakshin Kali temple. The fact is – animals are sacrificed there and local youths also use the location to celebrate and get drunk. The story shows Nepal in transition, it was originally written in 2003, and that transition, with the change from monarchy to republic, continues. Therefore, this article is in no way meant to be disrespectful the Hindu faith.

    It’s easy to shoot the messenger, when you don’t like the message.

    Hinduism in india comes in various shades. Though not everyone knows even a part of that spectrum. In west bangal, kerala and in the hilly ares (near the himalayas), nepal for instance the hinduism which is followed is more of Shiv-Shakti. this is also closely aligned to the ‘left handed’ ways. the rest of india is mosly follows the right handed way, in which shedding blood is evil. they also prefer their gods to be males like Ram, the obedient son, or Krishna. Don’t feel about that comment. an analogy would be if you hold christian in a street and tell him something particular from the old testament.
