I started this blog not to show the world how smart I am (or maybe not). I started blogging so that I could interact with lotsa different kinds of people and get their different views on various subjects.
It amazes me how different people interpret different situations according to stuff that has happened to them in the past. So I'm writing a forum type post today. Here goes...
Guys, living in India, we cannot imagine life without religion and various religious practices. We have heard of people committing heinous sins and going off to religious places to wash them off. Its believed that a dip in the Holy Ganges will wash you off you sins etc etc. People travel long distances to such places to cleanse themselves.
Now we've heard that the access roads to such places are very dangerous and the journeys, tedious. Often we read in newspapers that tourist vehicles meet with fatal accident while on such religious journeys where pilgrims die in large numbers. Recently there was a stampede in a temple which lead to the death of many people.
So now I wonder... Would they be alive if they din leave home at all?
Is this some way by which God punishes them?
If they are totally cleansed, why weren't they let to live to commit more sins (or to live a normal life)?
Well I'm hoping to get many answers from the blogosphere... You may comment on the topic or even on the following comments.
And I'd be mighty thankful if you forwarded the link to people who you think would be interested to answer this too...
