MUMBAI, Jan 27 : Government officials in India's Maharashtra state have called for talks between protesters who tried to storm a Hindu temple that bars entry to women and temple officials, as a campaign for equal access to temples gathers momentum. Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis met women activists on Wednesday, a day after hundreds of them tried to force their way into the Shani Shingnapur temple in Ahmednagar in western India, clashing with villagers. Police briefly detained the protesters. Fadnavis said state officials would facilitate talks between the activists and temple authorities, as #RightoPray trended on Twitter for a second day in India.     ?REUTERS
