Medusa/Basilik and Sani - Dont look in the eye


Whereas Shiva and Parvati try all legitimate ways to take over them.

Medusa and Basilisk - It is advised to avoid eye contact with basilisk the hybrid serpent and snake haired Medusa and hindu mythology's Sani-Saturn. All these folks are evil eyed. If you see all the stories in hindu mythology they have a pattern, all these badguys take non-violence path and fast for days till god shows up. The pleased god or goddess shows up and fulfills their blessings except immortality. The moment they get that, these guys imprison the milksop devas[lessergods] and create chaos in the world. And then the devas run forlife and beg to alpha gods to save them. The trickster Vishnu would always savethe devas by hook or crook.
Same, like kid denying to eat till he gets his xbox :)
Sani :Ravana,Srilankan asura king, took control of heaven and brought down all the nine planets (as per hindu mythology sun and moon are also considered as planets) and put them face down on his nine steps to his throne and walked on them to humiliate the gods.
Narada-trickster cajoles Ravana to put them on their back to show his virility by walking on their chest instead of their back. The bad guyRavana does that and when Sani's evil eye gazes him,he becomes victim of thebad luck. It starts with kidnapping and rest is history. Yeah.literally , heardabout story of Ramayana?
Moral of the story: Never yield to fasting trick. Let them stay hungry or put them on timeout.

  3. Thanks for the follow :)

    This is rather interesting. Like Chitra aid above, it's interesting to see such similarities between each mythologies.

    I have been fascinated with that idea, because it sort of shows that each culture, regardless of geography, has similar aspiration and fears. The idea of an evil eye as demonstrated in this post. Also the idea of an undead figure which drinks the blood of living beings. There is an Indian version of the vampire too, but a hundred times more scary. I forgot what it's called, but it's usually a woman...

    And to answer your question on my post: ahaha, yes, I do remember that Zuckerberg being a nerd :) Do you think that is why created the poke, to make other people feel awkward too? :D

  4. @AllenTesch- All abusers want their victims to fall rite in trap. Only the victims need to stay safe and protect themselves. Same principle.

    @Flippy Doodle - Yep. Never thought that I would find so many similarities. Fascinating indeed.
    I think it is Mohini(not the Vishnu) other lady Mohini-kind of ghost and the Vamphire version - Kattari. I used to get so scared.

  10. Sani Sev Saturn is God of this whole damn world, all cultures and religions but I hope plead that there is a higher God of true Goodness and Love behind all creation that will deliver from evil and darkness
