Gods.... lend me your ears..

When i sat down to blog today, i was resolved to write something from 'me'.
Meaning no stories from anywhere. Just my thoughts and words.
But blew it when i clicked on BBC. It was such a funny story that i just couldn't let it pass.

This news report is from India. 
The deities of Ram and Hanuman have been summoned by a judge to appear in a court!
Yes. You read it right.
A judge has actually sent the Gods a court order to appear in court to settle a dispute
regarding the ownership of a 1.4 acre plot. The priest claims that the land belongs to him.
But this land houses the two temples. The Gods had to be involved in such a case!! 

Further when the Two didn't turn up with the first notice, the judge sent another one which reads
"You failed to appear in court despite notices by a peon and later through registered post. You are herby directed to appear before the court personally" !!!

Nobody escapes the Law. Nobody!

I don't know what will happen if they really showed up tomorrow! I'm going to follow up on that. 
Here is the link for the full story. Smile around :)

Now this is ironic!

I usually get my inspirations for a blog post by reading the bbc website. I read this story earlier today and it made me laugh :)

Later, I was just blog surfing and happened to read your comments in a blog where I had commented.

So I followed the link to your blog and check it out. And I found this post :)

Needless to say, I will be following your blog to get an update on this story!

Interesting...I am fascinated by the news from India. All sorts of seemingly bizarre stories.
