Q.

A 12 year old girl in Thrissur, Kerala has broken a centuries old taboo against women by performing the prathishta karmam ceremony at the Bhadrakali temple..This was restricted so far to men only.
Do you think this incident will lead to further reforms in Hinduism?

A great news! But why did we not read it on the front pages of news papers? Why these idiotic 'news channels' did not devote their "valuable" time to this news? It could have played upon the dead conscience of many of us, like the Khap Panchayats, opened their eyes too!!

Shakti is the concept, or personification, of divine feminine creative power, sometimes referred to as 'The Great Divine Mother' in Hinduism. Feminine empowerment is highly regarded in hinduism.Definitely it is a great news agaist men dominated, superstitious indian society.But as per my belief it is not reforms of Hinduism. It is step agaist men dominated society. It is message to the men dominated society that women empowerment is not to be ignored. Human being are equal.No body can differentiate women in the field of work, rights and culture. Hinduism does not support that but only men dominated indian society created and added to our culture.
