At the center of this room is a beautiful metal bed that looks like it is from another time. It boasts simple and elegant design with an old world charm displayed in its tiered arches.

Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, said that it was very disturbing to see goddess Lakshmi, who was highly revered in Hinduism and worshipped by devotees daily, on the bottle of a potion which some of its retailers claimed to increase “intensity of orgasms”. Lakshmi was meant to be worshipped in temples or home shrines and not for pushing such potions for mercantile greed.

Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, urged the manufacturer, said to be Brand New Energy, to immediately remove the image of Lakshmi from the Potion bottles which was offensive to the devotees.
