How can a nation full of intelligent, educated, industrious people paradoxically co-exist with mindless zealots who believe in a monkey god?
CHENNAI, India (AFP) — A state leader in India has dismissed a deity worshipped by millions as a "big lie", deepening a highly sensitive row over plans to dredge a shipping lane through an area sacred to Hindus.
The shipping project involves dredging a lane through Adam's bridge, a chain of islands between India and Sri Lanka. At the moment, ships moving between the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal also need to travel around Sri Lanka.
The Hindu epic Ramayana says the geographic feature was built by an army of monkeys to allow the god Ram to cross the narrow strip of sea and rescue his kidnapped wife from a demon.
So this is why I haven't been able to get through to tech support.....they're all out protesting on behalf of their monkey god.
