The note I sent the idiot journalist about the bed of nails story



I can’t even begin to tell you about all that is wrong with the Hindu references in your article. For starters, there is no such thing as a Hindu Fakir (its an Orientalist Colonial invention) and Shakti iliterally means energy, not fertility (except in  the concupiscent Western imaginarium).  Happy to send you a reading list in the interest of journalistic accuracy.
