Nidhin Basheer...How sad. In West Bengal there was the tradition of "releasing" the Rollers to go tell Lord Shiv that Goddess Durga is on her way back to Mount Kailash from Earth...I am happy to say that this has been stopped over the last few years. The only way to counter this superstition is to teach the facts in school...on TV...media...
Thanks.
