Butt

I saw jhankis (a procession in which group of persons played roles mostly depicting stories from epics) of Lord Ram, Lord Shiva, Lord Krishna and Hanuman. In one jhanki, I noticed that an elderly man portrait a saint. He was wearing white robe and had a long white beard. His legs were gently soothed with light pressure by two youngsters. To my surprise he was smoking a butt.

At this time he should smoke or should control his temptation?

  2. In my childhood, I played a role of lord Rama in a 'Jhanki'.

    I think one should maintain the decorum of things which are related to religion or culture.

  4. There's an old joke:
    Rabbi, is it allowed to smoke while reading the holy scripts?
    No!

  5. Chandrika,

    If one is playing a part it should be realistic.

    Take care
