The etymology of the versatile phrase "to each his own" can be traced back to the German language, but what makes it absolutely brilliant is the fact that it is a perfect fit for a million different situations. I used to quote the same phrase whenever my grandmother used to ask me why I do not pray to any god in the mornings. I had immense respect for my grandmother and her beliefs, but I simply couldn't alter my fundamental beliefs to please her. I accompanied her to pilgrimage sites, even arranged char dham yatra because it made her happy, but I could not join my hands and prostrate before a monolithic idol that had not helped me achieve anything in my life, directly or spiritually.
But that barely means that I'm an atheist. If at all I need to be christened, I'd like to be addressed as an agnostic who's open to polite discussions on the matter. I extract my spiritual emancipation from numerous other sources outside the extravagant temples. It could be from a movie, family or friends, food, or a stay amidst the Himalayas, amongst several other possibilities. Hence, I am one of a breed who's not repulsed to the idea of maintaining good relations with people who do not share my faith. I am open to one and all.
If you are also one of those who can sympathise with what the introductory paragraphs, I am the bearer of fortunate information for all of you. Now you need not seek out unnecessary excuses when your parents/grandparents ask you to accompany them to religious places, you simply reply in the affirmative and find your own gods around theirs.
