Lokdaivatanche Vishva Reviews
The book is all about the local deities & traditions cling to them follwoed in some regional parts of India, How these deities from their very basic nature achieved a tremendous popularity & place in the minds of people is just interesting stuff to read. One of the example to quote here is of "Vinayaka" this is none another than "Ganesha" "the elephant headed God" as we all know today, was previously worshipped for the reason that he will not bring any hurdles in rituals or sacred word, in ancient times he was regarded as "Yaksha"[A kind of demigod], however today his identity is complete changes into a major deity among all. He has been now praised first before any other god in rituals as he is regarded as a deity who will avoid difficulties coming in the routine & spiritual/religious life/rituals/poojas.
