A bottle of spirit for the fierce one. There's an interesting tradition of offering alcohol to Kaal Bhairav, the fiercest manifestation of Lord Shiva. One of my friends had accidentally killed a dog but he had quite forgotten about the incident. Since he was having bad times, he consulted an astrologist. The fortuneteller asked him whether he had killed a dog in the past and he remembered the incident. He was advised to worship Kaal Bhairav and offer a quarter bottle of alcohol made locally from rice every Sunday. "Since Bhairav mounts a dog, it is a way of appeasing the fierce one," he says. "And my bad times have ended since I started offering alcohol to Bhairav." Interesting beliefs and interesting people! I wonder how come this works!!
