Have you always wondered where the temple donations actually go?
Are you the inquisitive types who cannot get to terms with illogical amounts of money being donated to temples in the name of god and religion?
Well if you are, then this read is for you.
Just yesterday, I read an article about an NRI man who donated Rs. 17 crores to the Tirupati temple.
I was in shock after reading about that man's philanthropist ways. I mean, how and why would a person donate his hard-earned money to a temple? Does anyone have any account of where that money goes?
Will that money be put to any good use, or will it be a victim of corruption as well?
Please help me understand why that giving man did not donate to charity, or towards the betterment of the poor?
Instead, he donated money to a temple? What was he scared of? Did he think he had to bribe god in order to get more successful in life?
I have heard about innumerable corrupt practices that are held at temples especially in India. I won't name any particular temple, but I have heard that the money these temples acquire on a daily basis is put into the accounts of the priests. Yes!
So, do you think Mr. NRI did the right thing? Are temple donations really fair? Is our money really put to good use?
