"Cleanup crew to the 'Wrath of Shiva' Tilt-a-Whirl!"
Wealthy Hindus are bucking the Christian and Muslim trend of religious education through centuries of violent conflict by building "Disneyland on the Ganges."
Krishna fanatics will be disappointed to learn that Dinosaur Adventure Land's "Jurassic Park is real!" edu-tainment means Gangadham is not the first worship based amusement park, but they shouldn't let that get to them. Evangelical Christianity doesn't have a lot of material for rides and light shows(Hell Houses and the endless possibilities for Left Behind inspired "Feel the Rapture in 3-D!" rides notwithstanding).
It actually seems like a great idea, especially for a country that made such a spectacular four hour song and dance extravaganza out of a Colonial -era land tax. I can see the Splash Mountain express blessing now...
