We thought you’d be interested

November 7, 2010

Picking our way through the daily Goan paper, Navhind Times English version, our attention was attracted by an article about the upcoming festivities this month at a 450 year old temple not far from here. Apparently it will be attracting millions of tourists and pilgrims. ‘ Millions? Why?’ we wondered. The answer lies in this paragraph:-

For the first time in the temple’s rich history a sapallav ayutchandi jap mahayag of 10,000 pathas’ with panchayatan homam for the kalabhivruddhi of the deity and the all-round prosperity of the devasthan and kulavais will be held.

Er, right! Thank you Navhind Times for this succinct summary.
