Durga, the Sex Worker!

#FekuQueenIrani #DurgaSmritiIrani #Mahishasura
Actually, I am surprised that in a tradition as diverse as that of India why no sex-worker, i.e. “Devdasi”, ever graduated to the status of a deity. I don’t see any problem in reconciling the two appearances of women in India, i.e. a Devi and a Devdasi. The current debate on Mahisasur and Durga in the parliament projects the hypocrisy of Indian society.
