When Faith faces superstition...

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.

Oru oorula oru panakkaara aal iruntharaam. Pooja punaskaarathula romba aarvam ulla aasami. Avar veetula epo paru bajana sathamum saambraani pugaiyuma irukumam. Ipdi bakthimayamaana aalaana avar romba aasaiya oru poonaya valathaaram. over chellam kuduthu valatha poonaigarathala athuku ella roomlayum suthi velayada special permission vera. Raja veetu kannukuti mathiri athu raja veetu poonakuttya jollya suthikitu irukumam. Ivar poojai panrenu saami roomla ukkanthirukara samyathula athuku bore adika aarambikka, neram kalam theriyama poojaiya disturb panra mathiri settai panna arambichithaam. Ithukaga avar enna panuvaram, epo poojai start meejic panrathuku munadiyum poonaya pudichi oru koodaila moodi vaika solli standing instruction kuduthiruntharam avar servants kita. Paasakaara payapullaigalaachay..oru thadava sonna pothum..karpoorama pathikitaanga..Automatica, oru oru thadavayum poojai boathu poonaya pudichi nee naanu poati poatukitu koodaila poatu moodi vaika aarambichaanga. Naladaivula antha panakaararuku udambu weaka poga avar makkal avaroda poojai matrum micha taskellam ownership eduthikitaangalam..apovum antha pooniaya pudichi koodaila podra mattera kannum karuthuma senjukitu vanthagnalam. oru rendu generationku aprum..antha veetla peran pethigal took lead in running the show. Apponu paathu avanga veetla oru mega function vanthichaam. Neria poojai..first time avlo peria functiongarathaala ellam pakkava irukaanumnu checklistlaam poatu seri pathukitaangalam. Apo oru visuvasamana velaikarar from the geriatric generation sonnaram. "Aiya..ellam ok..but oru poonai miss aguthu...namma peria aiya boojai pannarna aarambikarathuku munnadi visheshama pooniaya pudichi koodaila podratha oru sambrathayama panikitrunthar..neenga ipo apdi pannama vitta saami kuthama poodumunu" oru bitta poataaram..Aprum enna sollava venum. Saami matterachay. Annilenthu entha functiona irunthalum pora vara poonailam pudichi koodaila podratha oru norma follow pannitu varangalam.

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..

i also accept the fact that certain things which are told by the old people are scientifically true and jus that we dont know the science behind it.. We should either try to know about them or just not comment anything bad
