Lizard theory...

Did you know that in Hindu tradition there is a belief that the touch of lizard is an indication of something.
Infact there is a famous temple in Varadaraja Swamy temple in Kanchipuram, Tamilnadu(The temple has awesome architecture and is a very sacred and historic temple) where there are two lizard idols engraved in Gold and Silver. Makeshift ladders permit devotees to touch the lizard. Here is an image of the same.
 Devotees believe that touching the lizard in this sanctified chamber absolves them from the sin of previously hurting lizards; it also protects them from future harm by lizards. People from various places throng to this temple to touch these two lizard idols.
You want to know what happens if any one touches a lizard in real life. Here are some of the indications.

Noise to counter noise

The rules say that officially no one can create noise or inconvenience after 11:00 pm. Hence even during diwali, we are not allowed to light crackers after 11:00 pm. Nowadays, especially in Andhra Pradesh it has become a trend that people take out a procession with huge sounds during night and with such noise that it gets unbearable. Even if we complain, the voices are hardly heard. How do we counter the noise, increase the fan speed or put some ear plug so that the outside noise is not heard of. This is what all of us do! we create some other noise to counter the noise. We live in a shell and think that the outside world is safe. None of us go out to actually suppress the noise. Least, no one even tries to raise a voice against the noise. Whenever some tries to complain about it, they are pulled back by their close associates, saying why do you need to get involved in that noise. Every one knows that the noise is a huge inconvenience, but all of us keep mum, because we have our own ways…
