“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.

— end —

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.
