  • This is a ( hopefully ) replica of the Indus river ( or at least the beast we could find on storyboard) ... The river is at least 2,500 years old to 8,000 years old. Mind. Blown. The Indus river was the central spot for the Indus River valley civilization ( wow, who would have thought?) due to it bringing fertile soil.
  • Politics 
  • The Hindu society worshipped many deities and Gods. Some examples of what these Gods or Deities are, are: The creator, preserver, and the destroyer. All of which are the same God named Brahman. But they were seperated into 3 different forms depending on the function. the 3 forms can also be referred to as the holy trinity. Brahman the creator has four heads facing four directions ( North, south, east, west ) Vishnu the preserver maintains law and order in the universe, and Shiva the destroyer, despite his terrifying looks he is a benevlonent god. According to legend the Ganges river flowed only in heaven until it was brought down to earth to purify our world, it came cascading down to earth and would have shattered our planet had not Shiva broken its fall by allowing it to drop on his head
