In the whole wide world of human existence, the notion of God is omnipresent. Divinity, however, is mostly manifested under categories. So even if you owe your allegiance to one God, you bow in front of a hundred more!

The 33 crore Gods in Hinduism, in particular, holds the utmost fascination for many. The list is only figuratively exhaustive: hence, our discussion needs to happen strictly under the ambit of mortal restrictions!
