On the day of victory

When the world was young, a strong and manly demon arose. He pleased the Gods who granted him victory over all men. He tormented the earth and the Gods themselves.

A woman, frail, weak, challenged him. They fought for 9 days.

On the tenth day, he was destroyed. By devi, Shakti, Mahishasuramardini.

She was woman.

Hmm...Interesting. Do you think Tolkien lifted the Eowyn-and-the-Witch-King episode in LOTR from this?

Charu said...

good one! and happy dusshera (now if I had written this, sumanth of the savewhatever would have accused me of being a feminist. so by writing this, are you a masculist?)

Srikanth said...

Good stuff! But why "frail, weak?"

Sunil said...

thanks Charu. Same to you.

Masculist, huh? Well, well........

Thanks Srikanth......."frail, weak"....because it goes with popular perception of women (stereotype).

Once I played silkroad, I did not know how to get strong, someone told me that you must have silkroad gold. He gave me some sro gold, he said that I could buy silkroad online gold, but I did not have money, then I played it all my spare time. From then on, I got some silk road gold, if I did not continue to play it, I can sell cheap silkroad gold to anyone who want.

I like a game which needs to use wow gold, when you do not have World of Warcraft Gold, you must borrow warcraft gold from friends, or you buy wow gold. If you get cheap wow gold, you can continue this game.
