Of idiots and bimbos

I am not  one of those who believe in going to the temple every week to seek God. At the same time,  I have a very high tolerance  for those who do. I don’t think of a particular deity when I pray, but  I do sometimes find myself  unconsciously evoking  Goddess Saraswati when stressed out due to an upcoming exam, or Goddess Lakshmi when in need of money. It is something I attribute to my upbringing where religion and religious practices  were  not set aside as something fantastic and rigorous, but were a part of life that gave you strength and solace. And it is this inherent belief in something pure and beautiful and above petty cares that keeps me grounded in the worst of times. Although, as a doctoral student of science and engineering, I do not have concrete facts to support my beliefs, they are my pillars of strength and mine alone. I am sure there are others who feel the same way about religion. So I do feel slightly irritated when some high profile people act like ignorant and insensitive jerks. I am talking about Heidi Klum and her Halloween costume. Take a look.
