This is Shiva depicted as Neelakant (The Blue Throated One) You will find the myth behind that powerful figure in this story.
Somehow I don’t think that Lin had these ideas in mind when she suggested the topic for today’s LBC’s weekly posts when a few of us write on the same subject.
Perhaps this is what she had in mind.
You’ll see pretty browns in beautiful gowns You’ll see tailor-mades and hand-me-downs You’ll meet honest men and pick-pockets skilled You’ll find that business never closes Till somebody gets killed
If Beale Street could talk, if Beale Street could talk Married men would have to take their beds and walk Except one or two, who never drink booze And the blind man on the corner Who sings the Beale Street Blues
He said, “I’d rather be there than anyplace I know Yes, I’d rather be here, than anyplace I know It’s gonna take the Sergeant, for to make me go”
I’m goin’ to the river, maybe by and by Yes, I’m goin’ to the river and there’s a reason why Because the river’s wet and Beale Street’s done gone dry.
My dear friend Vishweshwar who does not feature ever as a commentator here in the blog posts, reads all my posts and comments on facebook when the mood takes him. Another friend Jaganmohan, with who my readers are familiar, also reads my blogposts and is himself a web poster with his own website to stream videos live. He too does not comment on my blogs but prefers to discuss matters directly with me.
Vishweshwar, in Sanskrit is a compound Vishwa Eshwar meaning, The Lord Of The Universe. A name for Shiva.
Jaganmohan is also a compound Jagat Mohan, meaning Charmer of the Universe. One of the names for Krishna.
These two friends named after very powerful Gods decided to bestow their munificence on me for Twenty Fifteen and have gifted me with the only things that they think I lack, books.
Vishweshwar gifted me with The Hot Belly Diet. I hope that he will comment on this post as to quite why he thought that I should read it.
