Clothes make a man (and also a God)

When devotees came in for their prayers
They were ruffled by the state of affairs
Some turned neela peela*
Seeing this atrocious leela**
Of Krishna dressed in jeans, wearing glares!


The Telegraph: 18/09/06: Krishna leela in jeans ruffles devotees. Read the story here

*upset and angry
**playfulness

*Update
Padmaja has a hilarious response to this limerick in the comment section. I thought it should be put up on the main page for greater visibility. Enjoy!

Well, this is the age of Gandhigiri.
So, why not a jean-clad Banke Bihari?
God will become so mortal
That he'll have his own portal
And write blogs on chamchagiri!!!
:D
