Author's Note:I started writing this story after watching a Hindi soap opera: Devon Ke Dev, Mahadev. The soap opera was based on stories from the Hindu religion and I chose to base my own writings on these stories as well. I'm not really a religious person, but I always thought there was so much to learn from stories of any religion! Lord Shiva is one of my favorite characters from Hinduism as well, so I thought I'd put his stories into words!
I very firmly want to state that I did not write this story with any sort of 'agenda'! I love to write and I've been looking for a good story to put into words for a very long time; since inspiration struck me, I took advantage of it! I just want to provide some entertainment to my readers, practice my own writing skills further, and perhaps provide a bit of food for thought. Please do not take any offense to anything stated in this story! Also, if you do take offense, be kind in your critisism of the story. I am writing this based on my own personal views of the stories I've heard from my childhood. I do not claim for everything I write to be 100% factual; I readily admit that I am no expert in this subject! =)
P.S. There's a lot of foreign concepts introduced in this story; if anything is unclear or confusing, feel free to comment/PM me and I'll try my best to clear it up!
