There was never a dull moment last year with all the festivals packed one after the other. It all started with vinayakar chathurthi. The posters, hoarding and the statues that lined up the street were surely a feast to watch. And the loud speakers blared to make sure the lord was kept awake and well entertained all night. And whoever selected the songs, was surely confused of Lord Ganesha’s choice of music and language and decided on versatility. By the time it dawned, Shiela, Munni and Don had made their presence felt.

Next, it was the turn of goddess Durga quickly followed by lord Hanuman. And that was when I felt something amiss in the posters and hoardings and it was not until Shivratri this year that I nailed it down.

There in the poster, Lord Shiva was etched with snow-capped mountains in the backdrop.
There he stood commanding over the mountains with blazing red eyes and thrishool held in perfectly sculpted hands that were loaded with biceps. Yup yup, you heard me right. Lord Shiva sported not just biceps but also a perfect six pack abs that could rob any innocent bystander of their inner harmony. And the lord’s divine glow was replaced by a bronze tan that would make anyone think he was back from a tan bed. And his mane was no more unruly, rather it was straightened, permed, deeply conditioned with short bangs framing his face.
I would not have been surprised, if Lord Shiva jumped out of the poster singing “dhoom machale” with HS’ signature dance step.

Aah, How can I blame the mortals when even the lord seems to approve and fit snugly in the size-zero and the seven pack abs mold that we have conceived.

    oh, there is also the concept of 7 pack abs, is it!? there is another benefit of size 0 Gods, the idol cost (due to lesser volume) would go down… but ya the money saved there was used in perms and short bangs 😀
