Two days ago, my wife wanted to stop at a temple in the evening on our way back home. I saw this guy outside the temple, with a brand new motorcycle, performing 'pooja' to the motorcycle with the help of a priest. The ritual was over in some time, and the priest was paid some pretty decent money. What's funny is that the rider wasn't having a helmet.
I was wondering if his money would have been spent better by buying a helmet instead of paying a priest to do some dubious rituals.
I'm not being blasphemous, but here's thought of the day: If you've a new motorcycle and you'd like to perform a pooja to it, go ahead by all means. But then also cover your empty head with a helmet.
