An Indian Hindu devotee performs “Tarpan”, a ritual to pay obesience to ones forefathers, on the last day of “Pitrupaksh” - days for offering prayers to ancestors on the banks the river Mahananda in Siliguri on October 7, 2010. In Hindu mythology, this day is also called 'Mahalaya' and described as the day when the gods created the ten armed goddess Durga to destroy the demon king Asura who plotted to drive out the gods from their kingdom.

    If these are really true and Gods grant all what humans ask, then we would be a very developed, rich nation. I am amazed that we still believe in this "mambo jumbo" asking imaginary gods for favors.
