Goddess of word
She compares herself to the Goddess Mathangi, patron Goddess of untouchables who controls speech, music and the arts. She is associated with untouchables, pollution, and left-over food. M.I.A. is salty and spits truth that people don’t like but is divinely gifted, so nobody can stop her.
Mathangi’s mudra is two raised middle fingers, her mantra is “Aim”, hers is the path of inner thought manifested in an artistic way but this energy can take any form, any of the 64 forms of artistry known as “Kala”.
Can you see any connections to M.I.A.?
