Village vignettes - Idol worship
A small pooja was going on. A brick had been washed, and anointed with turmeric and kunkun, and decorated with a flower garland. Camphor was lit before the god. The creators of the god pose with glee. (Varalu's three - Bharat, Sandeep and Rajesh - and her brother Simhadri's two - Rohit and Yugandhar!)
When god can be seen in a brick, a community has understood divinity.
