The skeptic

The girl was just 10 years old. Her family was visiting a temple. 

A rich family arrived there, carrying a huge vessel full of milk. It was easily at least 50 litres. The Iyer readily accepted the offering. After cleaning the deity, he slowly poured all the milk on the idol. The girl observed the droplets flowing over the idol, reaching the floor and finally draining into the gutter. Thick, pure milk was intentionally poured into the gutters. Her young brain could not find a reason. 

She had questions that no one would ever answer. 

The credulous girl was gone. A skeptic was born.
