Leave Harry Alone

I hear that a photo circulating showing Harry Chaurasia (of SILSILA fame) paying his respects to Annapurna Devi has the custodians of “Hindu culture” up in arms. Harry’s great violation, claim the apostles of purity of all things Hindu, was to have his footwear on while bowing to Ms Devi.

Photo by: ?

Yes, the choice of hideous white Bata sandals does grate, but so far as I can tell, Harry means no disrespect. Quite the contrary, in fact. His facial expression suggests reverence.

Lay off Harry, you douchebag-marinated bums.
