felis_ultharus: The Pardoner from the Canterbury Tales (Default)
Some Dalits in the village of Bankagaon are building a temple to the English language, deified as a goddess.

The purpose of translating English to godhood is to encourage the study of English, which is seen as the best means to escape the poverty and desperation that the old (officially dead) caste system condemned them too.

Clearly, she'll have to be one of the Sacred Whore goddesses of the Aphrodite vein. She's had vocabulary with half the languages on earth - to say nothing of the promiscuous origins of her grammar.

So, yeah. The work week is over. So much to do, so little energy to do it with.
