The God jukebox

I call them the "god jukeboxes" - little pocket radio sized devices that are dedicated to play religious music. I saw some in the Mylapore area being hawked by the roadside vendors. They are made in China and play little audio clips of devotional songs presumably off a flash ROM. They have pictures of Hindu gods on all sides and there is a knob that you turn to get the desired song.

I also saw this buddha machine today that's similar - http://www.fm3buddhamachine.com

It's a very convenient accessory for the religious I suppose - plug it in and twiddle the knob to get sweet religion flowing through your ears.

I have seen these boxes too. In the first few minutes it was very soothing, there after it got on my nerves, luckily I am not the type to smash other peoples stuff:-) It must have got on their nerves too, the next time I went the device was silent.
