The Puri temple board, after hours of debating, decided to throw away food cooked for 7000 devotes after a white American "descecrated" the premises by entering the temple. In a country where around 20% of the population hover around the poverty line, this is an awful lot of wastage coming from a temple. I wonder why the temple board couldn't have asked some random priest to just shower the "defiled " food with some slokas and cleansed it instead of burying the whole thing. That surely should have pleased the gods.
