This ancient rock carving is called "Arjuna's penance" and is one of the #UNESCO World Heritage Sites from #Mahabalipuram , India. .
I chose this for the keyword, "penance". There is a very well know #Telugu #proverb మంత్రాలకు చింతాయలు రాలవు. Which literally means "no tamarind will fall because of your prayers". If you know what #tamarind is, and have seen it, you will easily understand the significance of it. ,
For those who haven't seen a tamarind tree and what's the significance of this ancient proverb, tamarind fruit, when it is still raw and still hanging from the tree, is particularly tough fruit to pluck as the stalk is particularly strong and fibrous. Strong rains, hails storms don't easily dislodge any fruits. Unlike other fruits. The proverb tries to convey that, certain things require us to act not just pray. .
You need stones. Strong arm and a good aim to dislodge a tamarind from the tree. Not prayers. .
If you really love your doctor, healthcare professional, or any fellow human, in this time of pandemic, instead of lighting lamps, clapping and clanging utensils because a moron of a leader thinks it helps to fight #Corona Virus, please act. Follow the advice of medical professionals. Not morons.
If you want to know how well your Moron of Leaders are performing, please ask for statistics of their work to fight the pandemic. The number of #Covid -19 test ratio in India is less than 100 per million population. .
Tomorrow you might get advice from nations leaders to have "Cow's Urine" as it will be cure for Covid-19 along with the #prayers .
