Show or devotion ?

Palani

At Palani you meet several religious groups coming from far by busses to worship Dhandapani Murugan on the mountain.

Impressions of a tourist:
What a deep faith they are showing here quite impressive and convincing expression of religious confession.
The drums of the musicians pusses exaltation to a maximum and some get even in trance.

Impression of a Tamil man:
People of India have faith with God but pro's abuse this faith to pray for them, another form of making money,
and this scene is a very good show, maybe they did their best knowing that a camera was pointing at them.

Conclusion: In India everything is possible with or for money. Lucky, under this surface,
there are still a lot of very modest persons if you got the patient to look for.
