He Comes Home
I have lost patience with the stories I guess, so instead of mythology, let me tell you about the Elephant-Head God that paid a visit to my building. Like most other housing societies in Mumbai, mine too brings an idol of the God with a lot of pomp and fanfare. However, the joy is short-lived as the immersion of the idol happens in just two days. It is said that any idol brought home to fulfill a wish should be immersed in water once its work it done. Too bad a ritual, but its a tradition that needs to be followed without breaks.
