So, it’s all festive mood here. And this dumb locality has successfully screwed up my brain for, I assume, these four days, 10th to 13th of October. I seriously don’t know why they’re given permission to play crappy music and even more annoying mantra recitations on loud speakers…
These people are so unevolved, so unevolved, that they probably don’t even think of using headphones instead. Also, something as useless and as unscientific as mantra recitation (that too with major flaws, very few people actually know Sanskrit to the core) is enjoyed, rather in fear, by literally millions of people.
I’ve recorded a small clip (when I was inside my room), and you can get a feel of the sound coming on through my windows. Pathetically annoying or not, your call:
Some of these say the rest of the year that astrology is bullshit and astrologers are scammers, yet when the priests recite the arguably incorrect mantras along with astrological details (I don’t know why, but they mention about astrological stuff) they keep their mouths happily shut.
This is a painfully boring and dangerously backdated society.
What have been going on for years, go on easily, get accepted by people without any issues here. Try to be different, and everyone will make bad remarks about you.
“Shitty meaningless songs and unscientific mantra recitations play locally on loud speakers – no one gives a fuck. Protest – everyone loses their minds.”
The whole state loses its mind during the Durga Puja. It’s awful everywhere. Loud sound, bad traffic (you can walk faster than a Ferrari 360 Spider during the Durga Puja), fucked up atmosphere, extra pollution, religious retards going full retard… Geez.
I am not disrespecting a religion as they say. I’m just saying, stay happy with your bollocks, shut your fucking mouth, and ensure the peace of mind of non-interested people.
Around 5 years earlier, a goddamned (aha) person met me the day before my exam and claimed that all this (his religious beliefs) is fucking real. He was so ready to prove his fucking point that he challenged me, if I put my foot on his Kali goddess’ head, which I did, I would fail in the exam the next day, which I didn’t – I managed a 96%. Now, this isn’t worth discussing with sensible people.
Inner peace? Epic truth? It’s science bitches… Go read some psychology books instead of uttering mantras for your own gods’ sake.
And here I am, without the Internet, bugged by some weird network fluctuations since the start of the Pujas. I’m mostly unproductive and the ISP people are on vacation. So, indirectly I’m being affected by this thing.
It’s no worse than Fascism. Your productivity gets hampered due to religious crap, they don’t give a flying fuck. Their mantra recitation on loud speakers get affected by your objection, they’ll turn green rage monsters like the Hulk and come to attack you.
Hypocritic, double-standard, backward, society with no intentions whatsoever of moving forward. Period.
