Of Mahabharata, which forms the foundation of life and truth for the village people, they say. "Even Gods fail.", "Even Gods make mistakes" and "See Gods also underwent all this, what about us".
What people will go my implicitly is Dharmam, which is a code of ethic. Which says that every hungry person has to be fed irrespective of one's own food stock at home. Which says that a livlihood is valid only when it sustains others livlihoods also. Annasamy Anna tells me that, "Dharmam is to do an honest job even when no one is looking".
In complete silence, and putting aside every preconceived notion, if we simply sit in the vllages, we may learn vastly of the common sense and goodness of people, and of the validity and sense of their religion and dharmam. It is not blind or superstitious, by a long way.
