 Rediff On The NeT: Adding steamy spice to Jagannath's journey
Among all the rituals associated with Jagannath the one that has kicked up quite a storm in recent years is the practice of the 'charioteers' singing 'holy' limericks during the deity's ritual journey from the temple to his aunt's house where he stays for eight days and returns on the ninth.
Debadatta Samant, an expert on the Jagannath cult, says that the practice might have originated as a form of encouragement to the thousands of devotees tugging at the heavy chariots.
The sight of the charioteers and their lusty chorus might continue in the foreseeable future since the mass of devotees in their frenzied adulation of Jagannath cannot contemplate its being discontinued.
