I asked someone who casts deities in bronze, for large temples, to make me something small – a spear for the Lord in my shrine, at home. It took him a long time to get it done. The result was beautiful. He would not give me a bill. When I insisted, he said, “It’s your devotion that pays for what I love to do. Because of it, there are temples, and exquisite forms of gods and goddesses that I love to mould, and to cast in bronze!”
