Two-year-old Kali Devotee at Kumbh 2013

This young girl came upto me as I sat contemplating on the ghats of Triveni Sangam. She turned two that day, her grandma informed later. What caught my eye was the way she continuously flicked her tongue outside. As I watched her in wonderment, her family members told me that she had been a Kali bhakt/devotee since long. I took out my pic of Kalighat Kali and showed it to her. She held the photo in utter reverence, touched it to her forehead and said Jai Ma. Her family comes from a village near Varanasi. They shared their meagre meal with me that night as this little girl kept feeding me small bits of sweet homemade biscuits. I felt Mother had let me know that She walked with me.

  5. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.
    I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know.
    The design look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved
    soon. Kudos

    Additionally, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Chrome.
    Excellent Blog!
