Ah! Rats

A strange custom in a small hamlet in Rajastan, India. People beleive that the rats in the temple are actually children in disguise. So the rats are fed at the temple. Once a year they are give milk and whatever is left behind by the rats are consumed by those who beleive that the milk can actually flow as blessings within them.
Strange by do you know that there are real life rats doing the same thing. What is practiced in this particular hamlet is just a mirror of what is practised by many who eulogize religious leaders, and implicitly follow whatever is given without using their cognition.
