“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.

What an interesting story… Not sure I would want to keep them though.
Quite a curious thing to do!
I must confess that I laughed at what Tanu almost said. 😉 A new bit of culture I knew nothing about.
Nice metaphor from the prompt. Well written.
Very exotic. I love the dialogue – and the ending is priceless. Funny stuff.
That was fun.
Good one. 🙂
