Come New Year and many average South Indian Hindu homes have a problem. Most of them have calendars with pictures of Hindu Gods and Goddesses. How to dispose of these at the end of the year without appearing to be sacrilegious? These are sometimes handed over to third parties who in turn will find ways of disposal – similar to what we do with cows beyond their useful life.
One can see such pictures near dump yards, wayside shrines, niches and nooks in walls and trees.
