Worshippers pray to aubergine that looks like a Hindu god
This caught my eye earlier on this month, there are often reports of holy figures appearing in foods (who can forget Cheesus in Glee?). Hindus in Leicester were convinced, however, that Ganesh had appeared in an aubergine.
You have to admit that it is a pretty good likeness.
Mr Visram, owner of the catering company that found the likeness said:
“There have been at least 80 people who have come to pray at the temple and to see the aubergine. It is spreading good feeling throughout the community”
“That is the way things like this should be treated. It has been a blessing for us and I hope will bring us luck and prosperity.
“This has been sent to us and we shall treat this with the respect it deserves.”
Mr Visram said the vegetable was deteriorating and once it got too decomposed to display he would put it in a local river in a ceremony.
