Deities in the Hindu Pantheon
Each deity in the Hindu pantheon is an embodiment of an idea or philosophy. Each therefore is different from the other in the tasks they perform and the portfolio or office they hold. Accordingly every individual deity is furnished with powers and the other support mechanism necessary to perform his/her task. Here we present the results of an investigation that aims at providing the viewer with a brief idea of the encoded messages in the image.
