Pench Puja

Tragedy of life time struck a Maddox devottee this puja. Instead of doing pet puja in the various eateries that sprout around calcutta and seep to pour into the streets, i had to do Pench puja instead. as in Pench Madhya Pradesh. with Tigers, not Ma Durgas lion. and thats they bottomline of the tragedy. lets stretch it from there. like the plot line of Dil To Pagal Hai after the intermission, like a chewing gum, Boomer. Lets Not make a lot of sense from now on.
The holiday was lovely, really. BUt what will satisfy the heart of a bengali who craves the carnival atmosphere and non-existant cerfews? What was I to do with the excessive amout of brand new clothing recieved for the occassion? what to do with those traiterous roaming phone calls made on my Damn Cell One connection, that works everywhere but in calcutta? what do i do but to sit and dry my tears in misery and doze off in sleep in an uncomfortable position, stuck between 2 pairs of legs at a back of a cramped jeep, giving up hope of seeing those dastardly invisible tigers anyway? I persevere, thats what. and sleep, sleep and more sleep. with frequent reports of whats happening in and around calcutta. ah sad life.
BUt never fear... more to terrify coming up. Im affraid of butterflies. huge moths. moths, dark, fluttery and scary. am terrified. and these in artificial profusion decorated the cieling of the dinig hall of the hotel. I was more convinced than ever, never leave calcutta again for the pujas. never the less, i survived and was my way home hopefully, cursing everyone who had fun when i was away.
BUt speedy home delivery ws not to be. got laid out in benaras, for a day due to Bihar elections....had a most interesting time , making up for the dud puja days. Benaras is like the most interesting of cities. oldest and dirtiest. fascinating. saw plenty of sexy shadhus... made up for the loss of mine to see dashing mahishashur. Had an interesting encounter in the Biswhanather gulli. Saw a potentially rockstarish sexy south indian young sadhu turn into one cool dude with a backpack right in front of my eyes.
that was my entire holy experiance during the pujas. how holy no?
