Q. Is there Science in idols drinking milk or any miracle or mesmerism behind it?
Ans: Sometime back entire country woke up to the news that Vinayaka Idols drank milk. Many believed it as miracle of God. Later some started feeding milk with spoons to idols. In reality idols did not drink milk but devotees imagined that they drank.
There is scientific formula behind disappearance of milk into the idol from the spoon. It is nothing but capillary action -the surface tension of the milk was pulling the liquid up and out of the spoon, before gravity caused it to run down the front of the statue.Cohesion and Adhesion is behind such attraction. So there is no miracle behind idols drinking milk.
