Have you ever heard of a peculiar tradition like this one?Today is the Kartik Puja, which is organized at individual homes in West Bengal. It's not that popular and there is no official holiday on this occasion, but there is a peculiar tradition associated with the Puja. Neighbours silently keep the idol of Kartik in front of the doorstep of a selected household at the dead of the night before the Puja and the next morning when that house owners find the idol they have to worship it. This is going on for a long time and many people are unnecessary harassed by the neighbours.
At times, the neighbours indulge in these activities out of fun but the consequence has to be borne by the people of the household who find the idol in front of their doorstep. There are various traditions in different parts of the country related to different religions and beliefs, but this peculiar tradition of forcing someone to worship a God is really strange. Members, do you know about any strange tradition like this in your locality and if it is there I hope there is little we can do to stop it.
