In the storyline of “Juggernaut,” the third part, entitled “Procession,” represents the arrival of the juggernaut before it unleashes into a frenzy of steamrolling. The title and music are inspired by the origin of the word. From the Wikipedia entry :

One of the most famous of Indian temples is the Jagannath Temple in Puri, Orissa, which has the Ratha Yatra (“chariot procession”), an annual procession of chariots carrying the murtis (statues) of Jagannâth (Krishna), Subhadra and Baladeva (Krishna’s elder brother). During the British colonial era, Christian missionaries promulgated a falsehood that Hindu devotees of Krishna were lunatic fanatics who threw themselves under the wheels of these chariots in order to attain salvation. Such a description can also be found in the popular 14th-century work The Travels of Sir John Mandeville. This is also described in Melmoth the Wanderer. In rare instances in the festival’s past, people had been crushed accidentally as the massive 45-foot-tall, multi-ton chariot slipped out of control, with others suffering injury in the resulting stampedes. This sight led the Britons of the time to contrive the word “juggernaut” to refer to examples of unstoppable, crushing forces.

Thus I’ve tried to come up with something which goes from the majestic and ceremonial to the uncontrolled, and then to the catastrophic :


As I hinted to yesterday, the Lepufology tetralogy is taking a life of its own, and I’m getting ready to launch a blog dedicated to the work. In fact I’m almost done, and the site should be presentable sometimes this evening or tomorrow morning, but as faithful readers and supporters of the poligrafic endeavours, you’ve earned the right to a preview. Here’s “The Lepufology Project.” Have fun !
