New Clothes for Ganga

2 Comments
I am sitting by the Ganga, up in Rishikesh, somewhere near the soles of the mighty Himalayas. This is where the river shines like bottled water, uncontaminated by the mud-brown guilt of redemption-seekers and industrial effluvia.

I am lazing on the grey sand that holds in its heart the memory of the sea—its final future as well as its distant past. The sand despite its aeons of memory has nothing to say. But the river speaks. In baby gurgles and noisy licks of the sand bank.

The river is young and reckless here, enjoying her freedom from the Recluse Liberator’s hair-lock. Adventurers come to this stretch of the river to celebrate her liberation. They ride her various moods of escape. They ride these rapids in boats built for turbulence and turtle-turns.

The Ganga is playful here. She’s not the somber laundry-mom of the plains, where she takes on the task of washing, tumble-drying and ironing souls. Readying them for another life.

But beyond the froth and gurgle of new liberation she also seeps wisdom into her banks. Into the groundwater. Into the taps of 'drinking water'.

Ganga’s mystery, in the form of flowing water. She’s a goddess without temples. She's a force but she's also benign. Raging, but powerless to human encroachments. She is elegant and graceless at different points. She’s shy and shamelessly in-the-face. She’s naked but her nakedness is invisible. Like the emperor’s new clothes. She is reticent but she can tell you her backstory in a flash. Ganga is saint and slut rolled into one.

As her stories pull me deeper and deeper into a warm-and-chilling embrace, I can almost taste the salt in her waters. Are they tears of joy? Or tears of pain? I enter her gingerly, not wanting to disturb her absorption in her painful pleasure or pleasurable pain.

But she sends me an eager wave that yanks at my towel. Once, twice and thrice. And the towel goes with it like a flying rug under water. And suddenly I see her water face grinning at my nakedness. As if saying 'Gotcha!'

  1. I've always liked things like sand clocks, lava lamps, and the like to kind of rightful spend in days of yore staring at it as a configuration of catharsis. In a way, it helps me with meditation, to relieve stress and well-grounded assume about nothing. That's why since I was a kid, in place of of dolls and cars I've always cool more of such pieces like sand clocks, lava lamps, musical boxes etc. So I was most enchanted when I base the[url=http://www.dealtoworld.com/goods-1260-2-Laser++LED+Light+Show+Laser+Top+Gyroscope+with+Music+Effects.html] 2-Laser + LED Light Appear Laser Crown Gyroscope with Music Effects[/url] from DealtoWorld.com protection the Toys section. It's like a tuneful thump, a spinning better, and a light divulge all rolled into one. Which is spectacular diversion! The gyroscope will outing object of around a minute. The laser light display with accompanying music makes this gyroscope a rather incomparable toy that my friends be subjected to also been most amused with.

    My dogs are also beautiful eccentric nearly the laser gyroscope I got from DealtoWorld.com. They evermore cleave to the gyroscope as it spins, although at first they kept barking at the laser diverting dismiss advertise, and also because it produces music. But after they got employed it, they've stopped barking but just watch over following the gyroscope whenever I start spinning it. Kids are also bonny amused alongside it. Occasionally it's meet to have diverting toys throughout the lineage so that you can leave the diminutive on while the kids are being amused or playing with it while you go prepare foodstuffs or sock changed. The gyroscope is one such play with with this purpose.

    The gyroscope I bought from DealtoWorld.com has a dragon as a pattern on it, and produces a taper accompany with red, dispirited, and unripened colours. Steal a look at the pictures I've uploaded of the gyroscope with laser incandescence show. The music produced from the gyroscope is not that expert but facts sufficiency to accommodate any supplementary customer to the house. The gyroscope is red and jet-black, making it look exceedingly imperturbable, and measure macho with that dragon imprint.

    The music dismount attack make clear gyroscope runs on 6 LR44 batteries, which are replaceable anyway. I've also used this gyroscope to surprise my girlfriend during our anniversary celebration. I did the cheesy thing of decorating the hotel room with roses and when I led her in, I started up the gyroscope as correctly so that the laser insight clarify produces a romantic effect. I also had some battery operated candles so all the sunrise effects created a rather mawkish atmosphere. She loved it, not later than the way, to my relief. I also bought the candles from DealtoWorld.com. These days it seems to be my oversight shopping site in return all gifts and ideas in compensation fancied occasions.

    Since Christmas is coming, this laser light playing gyroscope can maybe be a talented Christmas give-away for the toddler or neutral the pet! Alternatively, the gyroscope can really be a kindly totalling to the established Christmas decorations. I can imagine placing it near the Christmas tree and maybe spinning it when guests reach in the house.
