a few early morning shots done, as I wandered the Ghats

Mother departs

So let me say this straight, every year we welcome our MOTHER GODESs KALI,

Spend a night worshiping her, stay up all night, do all sorts of sacrifice, the UPWAS for kali is the one where one does not even drink a drop a water, n it involves animal sacrifice, and then 24 hours later we form a procession and go dump her in water and say, OK Mother we love you, see you next year, REALLY, if this was how your child treats you what were you to make of it?

One of the mothers have departed

Another is going to visit us tomorrow night, 
Any Rakshasas that are left will be vanquished, and yes there will be co lateral damage, some innocent, or seemingly innocent people will be punished, 

Maybe it is there karma that is drawing them in Ma kakis path, as she roams hungry.

The Monasteries in Ladakh as they speak to the gods, located high up, n the highest / tallest structure in the barren areas where it is indeed a wonder how the construction was done
