Do you worship English?

Not sure what religion to pick?  Here's a goddess gaining currency among the untouchables of India that you might like:






"She is the symbol of Dalit renaissance," says Chandra Bhan Prasad, a Dalit writer who came up with the idea of the Goddess of English.

"She holds a pen in her right hand which shows she is literate. She is dressed well and sports a huge hat - it's a symbol of defiance that she is rejecting the old traditional dress code.

"In her left hand, she holds a book which is the constitution of India which gave Dalits equal rights. She stands on top of a computer which means we will use English to rise up the ladder and become free for ever."

Nope.  "English" is now officially the name of a deity.

Wow, thanks Clair ... I didn't even had a clue this was real.

I love it: if there isn't a god/dess that suits your needs, make one up --everyone else did...
