Man has a fascination for something bigger and heavier.

via Daily Prompt: Massive

Man has a fascination for something bigger and heavier. That’s why he builds massive structures as the abode of gods. The chariot of the god Jagannath is so massive a structure that the word Juggernaut is adopted in the English language with a totally different meaning. The statue of ‘Thiruvalluvar’, the poet saint, ( Poet saint? Yes, you have read it right. We accord the status of  sainthood to the Tamil poet Thiruvalluvar whose two line verses hold eternal truth) built at the cape at Kanyakumari, in the south of India could be termed a colossus. All the temples, the abodes of gods are massive in structure. But one thing I do not like about the word ‘massive’ is , when it is associated with heart attack.
