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?
Vishnu.....Tolkien totally lifted the battle of Eowyn and the Nasgul king from here.....now i'm convinced! Good one....
One of the various versions for celebrating Dassera :)
Happy Vijaydashmi/Dassera to you and your family Sunil:-)Though the wishes come a day late.
thanks minal. Wish you the same.
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?)
Good stuff! But why "frail, weak?"
thanks Charu. Same to you.
Masculist, huh? Well, well........
Thanks Srikanth......."frail, weak"....because it goes with popular perception of women (stereotype).
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.
