hai friends ! this is not regarding south or north culture or devotion! this is regarding the potraying of the gods we all worship ! we respect each and every culture and story regarding our devis and devatas, as we all know, we have seperate story for every old temple in our wide country and we respect every one of those stories. nowhere it is written that kartikeya was left with those krittikas and they just took care of him till his parents came to him. and parvati was the one who made the six kids into one and not shiva. i would have felt happy , even if they showed , both their powers combined , as in the case of his birth. but no! they had to show parvati standing with tears, either happy or sorrow, and mahadeva doing all the things.
sometimes i feel, why parvati is roaming all over kailash parvath, shedding tears always, as if kailash is a shoka gruha . for gods sake, or mahadev ki saugandh , she is mother of whole universe!
it was little pleasing to see parvati's part in creating subrahmanya, though the dance was funny ( was it a dance really)
but what happend later was beyond my thinking. last , those krittikas , they are not even pleasing to look at. when mahadev started division of babies into nine, i was like ok, so we are taking this story also into this and parvati was standing without any expression, as if , any way the baby is divided into six, and now it will be made into nine ! kya pharak padta hai ! may be she was too shocked !
but after seeing yesterday's episode, feeling like quit watching the show rather than see our gods behaving this way.
we agree this is mahadeva's show , but every god should get his or her due respect, either it is parvati or kartikeya.
sorry for the long post and really felt bad after watching kartikeya's portrayal .
