A Gift for the Goddess by Murli Melwani
A Response by Kusum Choppra
‘Gift for the Goddess’ published in Issue 10, March 2013 of Out of Print, narrates a horrifying occurrence that should not belong to the 21st century.
When modern engineering and superstition collide in rural areas, who wins? You guessed it: superstition.
What I wonder is that when men think of evil, why do they ALWAYS attribute it to a goddess/ a ma?
Is it not time that these 'Unspokens' are now brought into light and questioned?
