Embark on an enchanting journey into the mystical realm of ancient deities with Devas, a captivating compilation of 10 tales drawn from the depths of mythology. What happened when Indra fatally wounded Vayu's son? Why did Agni set fire to the Khandava forest? How did Pushan end up losing his teeth? And who bestowed the name Prithvi upon the earth?

Agni: The God of fire who governs the southwest direction resides in his capital city, Tejovathi. He's revered as the divine messenger.

Brihaspati: The Lord of Scared Speech holds esteemed status as the teacher of all Devas.

Dattatreya: According to the Skanda Purana, Dattatreya came into being at the beginning of time. To those who believe in him, he is both God and Guru.

Prithvi: Like most cultures, Indians also worship the earth, personified in the form of a Goddess.

Pushan: The God of safe journeys, protector of animals and all those who feed them, guide to souls and comforter at the time of death, is also one of 12 forms of Surya.

Rudra: While Shiva is a calm yogi, Rudra is one of his forms that is associated with rage and destruction.

Soma: Soma, a deity frequently referenced in the Vedas, is associated with the mystical Soma Plant, the juice of which creates a magical drink.

Varuna: Varuna is said to be the lord of all oceans and water bodies. It is believed that the sun itself is in his eye.

Vayu: Vayu is the God of wind. He is often depicted with four arms and riding on his Vahana, the antelope. He is also known as Prana, the life breath of the world.

Yama: Yama is the God of death and the lord of Naraka. Yama was also the first mortal to die, which is why he became the king of ancestors.

In Devas, Amar Chitra Katha aims to reignite curiosity in the forgotten Gods who once held dominion in the celestial realms and safeguarded humanity on earth.
