The Hindu Festivals: absolutely ridiculous, barbaric, and
Almost all of the Hindu festivals are bogus, childish, and
absolutely rubbish. Here I explain how.
1. Makar Sankranti (Capricorn Transition of Sun)- It is
celebrated by giving Til Gool, a kind of round sweet edible
thing, to each other and saying Til Gool Ghya Ani God Bola.
(i.e. have this til gool and speak good.) Now how many people
really speak good because of this? Almost none! Simply
2. Holi and Rangapanchami (A kind of fire night to burn evil
followed by some colourful celebration) - A huge fire is
created, at innumerably many places across the country (i.e.
India), for the sake of burning evil. However, what is literally
burnt is wood and loads of air pollution is created. The next
day water balloons and colours are heavily used to throw at
civilians which causes injuries and interruption to normal
duties/routine. What a shame!
3. Nagpanchami - This festival celebrates and worships the
reptile 'snake', which is offered milk on the basis of the
misbelief that it likes milk, where, in fact, it does not drink
milk at all. Quite silly!
4. Raksha Bandhan (Promise of Protection)- In this festival a
sister ties a Rakhi, a kind of funny band, on the wrist/s of her
brother/s expecting a promise that he/they will protect her in
hostile circumstances. (where actually the sole interest of the
sister is often to get money out of her brother/s pocket/s.)
5. Ganesh Chaturthi (Celebrating the funny-looking elephant
headed god)- Loads of huge (as well as tiny and medium size)
Ganesh statues are created, worshipped, and finally sunk in
rivers and seas. All this is accompanied by loads of noise &
water pollution and severe disruption on roads demanding police
6. Dashera, Dussehra (also known as Vijayadashami) - In the name
of burning evil, a massive Ravan doll is burnt at many places
across the country, causing loads of air and noise pollution.
7. Divali / Deepavali It is mainly celebrated with millions of
fire crackers all over the country with absolute disregard to
nature and civilians. It is even fearsome and possibly fateful
to travel in those periods as roads are full of burning
firecrackers !!! Simply annoying, barbaric, and Rubbish!
