The Gods Must Be Hungry

Offerings like this one are a way to express gratitude and ask for favors from the gods. But I often wonder how such a small dish of fruit and snacks can satisfy the appetite of major deities. Take those tiny little slices of watermelon, for example. They wouldn't even provide enough food for the god of small things, much less a four-headed Brahman with four mouths to feed.
