Hi guys! I hope you all don't mind me joining this discussion, but I just had to express some of my own opinions, not wanting to offend any of you already here on this thread.
Firstly, I really want to add Meera to this banner. I mean, we can't take the the meaning of "Mythological" too literally and exclude a lot of the things that are a central part of the belief system. Meera is truly an ICON of bhakti in Hinduism. And because Meera didn't occur thousands of years ago, doesn't mean she can't be a part of this forum and the banner. I mean, the forum was created in the first place to discuss the serials we consider to be a part of it.
Secondly, I would would wish that we use pictures from the mythological serials rather than the paintings of the deities. That's just me personally, but we mainly discuss mytho shows, make siggies of mytho actors, etc. I agree that it is all about God, but still. And the actors are portraying God's avatars anyway.
And lastly, I don't have a problem with having two or three krishnas, two rams, etc. I mean, don't we spend most of our time discussing the different shows like Jai Shri Krishna AND Shri Krishna? RS and AS Ramayan? It would look so nice if we have both Meghan and Swapnil on the siggy as well as Gurmeet and Arunji. And Lola di's idea sounds perfect. But one single thing to add, what if we showed RadhaKrishna from SK (love Swapnil and Shweta), but Dhriti and Meghan in JSK. I mean, most of the serial was about Dhriti, but there were tons of stages in SK. We can't include all those, but two Krishnas from JSK isn't much.
I hope what I wrote didn't offend anyone. I really really apologize if it did.
Its a great idea that we have a poll. We can settle on a final idea easily with that.
