Killed for Kali
Deep in India's remote, lawless Uttar Pradesh, the vengeful goddess Kali the Destroyer is feeding on a rich diet of sacrificial human flesh.
Dozens of innocents have been slaughtered in recent months by the blood-crazed "holy men" who worship the multi-armed destroyer deity.
The grim ceremonies are happening in a terrible little backwater called Khurja, a eight-hour drive from Delhi.
Kali's murderous priests promise good fortune for those who take part in the horrific sacrifices, usually starting with animals and then moving on to the ritual mutilation and murder of little children.

"Ten days ago Sumitra and her two sons crept to their neighbour's home and abducted three-year-old Aakash Singh as he slept," the Observer reported Sunday.
"They dragged him into their home and the eldest son performed a puja ceremony, reciting a mantra and waving incense. Sumitra smeared sandalwood paste and globules of ghee over the terrified child's body. The two men then used a knife to slice off the child's nose, ears and hands before laying him, bleeding, in front of Kali's image."
Some of the villagers have been caught and jailed, but the tantrik priests themselves seem to disappear.
A British reporter trying to reach the scene of the horror was warned off by residents of the nearest town: "Don't go. It is an evil place. The people there are cursed."
The child sacrifices are occasionally uncovered in other remote villages, too.
The English word "thug" comes from the Kali worshippers known as the Thuggee. This criminal cult operated for some 500 years, murdering travelers in attempts to keep their horrible goddess from returning to Earth.
I bet she stretches out all her sweaters. No wonder she's so cranky.
