Remember that golden deer in The Ramayana?  That alluringly-beautiful-yet-not-what-it-seems creature that utimately causes Sita’s doom?  I always thought it strange that Sita, who lived so contently in her simple forest life, suddenly coveted this deer (or jinka as we say in Telugu).  It is ironic that in this season of materialism, as we see reindeer adorn homes and front yards (ones that even light up to golden hues), I think back to that ancient story of the golden deer.  See what happens when you want something you don’t need? 

Maybe I should have reminders all over the house:
