Dear bhakta(s),

For now, let me introduce myself as Ravindran C alias srinivasa raghavan, studying in a government school at vellore in tamil nad. I am seventeen years old. I promise other details sooner.

I have a two questions to ask. 

Why is it that the vegetable onion is not eaten in most houses, especially on saturdays? Some people said to me that it is a taboo. I do not believe it as I feel that Hinduism does not have anything like a taboo. It's main stress, I believe, is on the concept of karma. 

While we worship godesses without the god, we do not do the same in the reverse order in almost all cases. Can anybody clarify these for me?

Srinivasa Raghavan
