Religion, till a while back, was used to be addressed as faith or belief. The word has been dirtied by all and sundry and with the advent of science which has been steadily gobbling up the space between the known and the unknown, there has been relentless attack on what one perceives and what is actually the case. Many of the popular beliefs have been relegated to just that - popular belief and nothing more. Though scientists claim to have bridged the gap considerably they've only opened up the pandora box of more questions and its widened to the extent that even their own theroies and proofs are ending up as spoofs with each passing day. I've nothing against science but what is it but a mere documentation of an highly active mind. With evolution and more awareness and opportuninties the challenge to existing theories and practices have grown manifold and science is fighting with itself to defend its own space. Its become a creature which survives by feeding on itself. Whether it leads to growth is debatable. Well. Our kutti kathai told by Krubanantha Vaariar swamigal to round this topic.

Velayata irunthalum sila pala mattera yosika vaikuthu. It might sound as sheer stupid step now, but it might have been relavant once upon a time and might have lost its meaning with time. Not each step need to be followed all times and not each a foolish one. Its just that people either dont understand the meaning and mechanically do things and when someone down the line questions the validity it goes unanswered and is rendered into oblivion. Munnorgal ellam muttalgal ilai athukaga avanga solrathellam senjathellam blinda follow pannanumnu avasiyamum ilai.
Pretty heavy stuff to ponder over. Ipothaiku apeetu..apaalika repeatu..
