Dionysus and Karthikeyan - Raised by constellation turned water-nymphs

Dionysus and Karthikeyan - Raised by constellation turned water-nymphs

Greek mythology:

Dionysus :
Son of Zeus and mortal Semele
Trick and Fire and Birth:
Trick:
Hera the greeneyed wife of Zeus instead of confronting her playboy husband tricked Semele and planned her demise as well as her unborn's demise by asking her to request Zeus reveal himself in true form ie radiance, heat and light.
Fire:
Zeus did comply though he didn't want to ,  Zeus came to her armed in his thunder and lightning and the mortal woman couldn't handle the all that and got burnt to ashes. Zeus revived his love-child fetus from ashes and sewed him in his thigh until he was ready to be born.
Birth:
Dionysus is known as twice-born. The second birth was from fire and only Zeus was involved no intercourse, IUI or IVF. Dionysus is greek mythology version of cloned sheep Dolly :)
Water-nymphs:
Dionysus was raised by water-nymphs ie rain-nymphs of Mount Nysa.
As a tribute they were turned to constellation called Pleiades.

Hindu mythology:
Karthikeyan:
Son of Shiva and Parvati.
Trick and Fire and Birth:
Trick:
A son born to Shiva and Parvati was supposed to kill the Tarakan an Asura(demon). But there was no romance sparking between Shiva and Parvati. So, the god of love "Kama" was sent to make Shiva fall in love with Parvati and impregnate her.  He indeed shot flower arrow on Shiva while he was in deep penance, but instead of sparking romance it unleashed a Colorado forest fire of rage. The enraged Shiva burnt Kama to ashes.

Fire:
Then when Shiva cooled down, and after hearing to the need for a kid and why Kama had to shoot him and all, he agreed to comply. But inside of choosing to sleep with his wife and wait for another 10 months to pop out a kid, he fast tracked the process and  he created six balls of fire from his third eye and created 6 boys.
Birth:
Another version mentions that the furious Shiva was spilling all fire from his third eye and his semen aka six semen seeds in form of fire spilled in the Saravana tank ie water-form of his wife Parvati and thereby six kids were born.
What to say, the birth wasn't water-birth but an IVF experiment in a water tank instead of petri dish?
Water-nymphs:
They were all merged to one kid known as Karthikeyan. (My favorite god by the way)
He was raised by six water-nymphs known as Krithikais.
As a thanks to their service they were all made to constellation called Krithikai.

Moral of the story:
 Lord Shiva had some serious semen spilling problem. I couldn't recollect any biological kid of his,
-Murugan - Semen spill in tank
- Ganesha - Born from turmeric mold made by Parvati (Turmeric pinnochio?)
-Ayyapa - Born from semen pill of Lord Shiva to LGBT transgender avatar of Lord Vishnu's - Mohini.
In Iyyapa story he was immediately all attracted to Vishnu's transgender form Mohini, but here even after Kama's help  he couldn't impregnate his wife the traditional way. Even the almighty had performance problems.

  5. Holy crap (pun absolutely intended), look who's back! Good to see you again. Thought you were lost to the usual atrophy of interest in blogging that seems to happen.
    As for the post itself, I think I might be Karthikeyan, just based on my 6 personalities and all the women who raised me. That's right, I'm your favorite god.
