Big Enough

So that He can better hear our prayers,

We blare them on loudspeakers,

Perhaps forgetting that, with an elephantine head,

The Lord has very big ears.

Ganesha Chaturthi, in celebration of the pachyderm-headed son of Shiva and Parvati, begins today, with high-decibel music on loop on loudspeakers.
