Regurgit-ananda

 

“You collect stones Boss?”

“Stones! These are Shiva Lingas. Haven’t you heard of Swami  Regurgitananda?  Every full-moon day Lord Shiva descends into Swami’s body while he dances in a trance. At the end of the dance the holy spirit transforms into a stone and the swami spits it out. I’m so blessed that the Guru gave me these Lingas to worship at home…Only top donors can get them!” , Ram’s finished proudly.

“Hahaha ! now you’re going to tell me that yellow stone was pulled out of your Swami’s …”

Ram’s offended face stopped Tanu short. He had stirred up a hornet’s nest. Time for a new job.

Pulling up Lingas out of the mouth is a favorite regurgitating pastime for some ” Swamis”. Many  such Swamis end up in a prison cell but with a billion people ,India keeps some of these Swamis in business.

A speck…

“Write to me everyday”, he said.

I nodded-  Words stuck like a broken down car on a lonely highway.

I stood near the ‘Ticketed passengers only’ sign watching him walk the long corridor  to his flight until he was a speck…in my eye.

I went back to our empty apartment. Each day  a penance until his return.

19 years later:

“Text me everyday”, he says.

I nod.

I watch him  walking the long corridor to his flight until he’s a speck…and break into a jig.

Each day is going to be a party!
