(Demon)GAJASURA

Also known as NILA

When Nila decided to pick a fight with Shiva he took the form of Gajasura, a big nasty elephant monster.

This was a bad move on the demons part as Shiva simply lopped his head off with a trident then flayed the corpse with his patented dance of destruction.

Shiva carried the head around like a lucky charm which would be unusual if we weren't talking about the slightly disturbed God of destruction, however, there is a plus side and when he also be-headed Ganesha - the son Parvati forgot to tell him he had - a replacement was already at hand.

Decapitation is such a bad habit. Please don't try it at home.
