Better to Light a Lamp…

“Better to Light a Candle Than Curse the Darkness” goes the old saying.

It wasn’t exactly dark, but an old devotee trekked up all the 150 odd steps of Pachai Malai to this temple of Mahayuga Kali on the hilltop to light a lamp in front of the shrine. Due to the high wind, she wasn’t successful in the beginning but finally succeeded after several attempts.

By the way, the original quote is attributed to several people from Confucius to Kennedy. I have no idea who said it first.
