After support from Shashi Tharoor and Ratan Tata, the Task Force for Annihilation of the Salwar Kameez gets backing from the big guns:
A change in the dress code for women entering Kerala’s famed Sree Krishna Guruvayoor temple has apparently annoyed the deity, according to an astrologer conducting rituals in the temple.
Speaking to IANS, temple manager Vijayan Nambiar said that astrologer Padmanabha Sharma while conducting the ashtamangalaya devaprasanam (astrological consultations) Sunday said that the deity was unhappy over the entry of women in salwar-kameez.
I don’t blame the deity. Any right thinking deity, even a Vaishnavite one, would be unhappy at seeing a salwar kameez. Anyway, this is good news. Our war against the salwar kameez can now be called a religious struggle, and we will become a votebank. Such joy.
