Lord Ganesha Stockings

CHICAGO: Indian Americans across the country have urged world’s largest online retailer Amazon.com to immediately withdraw stockings carrying the image of Lord Ganesha and flip-flops carrying sacred symbol Om; calling it highly inappropriate.

The protest led by Rajan Zed, also urged its President Jeffrey P. Bezos to offer a formal apology asserting that Lord Ganesha is highly revered in Hinduism and is meant to be worshipped in temples or home shrines and not to cover one’s feet and legs or touch with your feet and legs. Inappropriate usage of Hindu deities or symbols or concepts for commercial or other agenda is not okay as it hurts the faithful.

Amazon.com, Inc., a Fortune 500 company founded in 1994, and headquartered in Seattle, claims to offer earth’s biggest selection. Ganesha stockings sell from $9.69 to $16.30, while Om flip-flops are priced at $34.97.

It’s a lovely book. It feels energetically clear and light. It’s easy to read, dip in and out and most importantly it offers information without fluff! Blessings on this project.
