Sweet Porridge for the Goddess - 55 Fiction

The priest offered some sweet porridge to the Goddess. Wasn't She payasaana priya, the One to whom it was dear?  After the ceremony, he went about his chores; the payasam forgotten. Then came the untouchable beggar, pleading for food. The priest disgustedly shooed him away. The abandoned payasam grew cold; the ants had a feast.

Post Script:
Payasaana priya is one of the thousand names of the Goddess, as mentioned in the Lalitha Sahasranama.
