I did give the instrumental version you posted a listen. It was pleasant, but not exciting and dangerous like Hendrix's. I am not always of the opinion that the canonical version should not be tampered with. It depends on what appeals to me aesthetically. Here are a few examples of the derivative version sounding far better than the original, or is also equally pleasing in a different way:

1) Coltrane's rendition of My Favorite Things is way better than Julie Andrews's overly cheerful singing;
2) Miles and Vijay Iyer's versions of Human Nature beat the pants off of Michael Jackson's original;
3) Clapton's Crossroads is wonderful to listen to, although I like the original raw power of Robert Johnson's singing too;
4) I prefer Monk's version of Caravan to Ellington's original.

So I am not a stick-in-the mud when it comes to music.

But I don't think dosais and chutney should be tampered with.

Yeah, right! And you still haven't answered my question above.

What question, the one about the leader of the breakaway catholic sect? That was too cryptic. Explain?

Ah got it! Didn't know that; I was just listening to it as a piece of music. A bit confused. When I googled it, it seemed like the breakaway sect was a real story. But what you posted makes it seems like pure fiction. Which is it?
