In a small village off a forgotten town down a winding lane away from the road there lies an old old shrine. One that time seems to have forgotten. One that waits alone, visited by an old family priest whose forefathers tended to her two hundred years ago.  Its white washed walls could not hide the toll of the years nor take away her unique aura. And sitting outside on a rough hued pedestal she sits and waits gazing placidly as the world strolls by.  She seems to have been sitting there forever, unmoved by time, nature or man.  Beautiful and strong…the Devi sits…a reminder of our belief and our hypocrisy… our faith and our reality…
