Alright, I’ll stop for today, but I love these stories of Comic Faith:
“She’s worshipped by both Hindus and Buddhists in Nepal, who believe she’s a reincarnation of the Hindu goddess Durga.”
“The Kumari’s life of prayer also includes homework. When I go back to the current Kumari’s home, her mother allows me to enter her room and watch a private tutoring session. For the first time, I see her as a normal girl as she sits quietly at her desk, and carefully takes notes.”
I smile and shake my head at the comedy. Then, I frown and sigh. Thinking of my own daughter and her innocence. Then, of these children in Nepal and their lost childhood, in the name of god.
