(Hindu Demon)KALI (2)

The Hindu demon of trouble and strife. Kali rules the current 'Yuga' which could explain a few things!

When the Gods and Demons churned the cosmic ocean, Vasunti started to feel a little queezy and though he valiantly tried to hold it back he was eventually sick.

If the serpents poisonous puke had contaminated the Amrita there would be no telling what catastrophes would unfold so Shiva caught the venom in his mouth thus preventing a certain disaster. He tried to drink it all but after a galliant attempt he turned blue and passed out and the bit he didn't manage to swallow became the Kali.

When the revatalized Gods killed the Asuras for trying to steal the prescious ambrosia, Kali escaped by hiding in the souls of mankind. He's also been known on occasion to posses Shiva himself, in which case his scribblings cause much confusion .. or maybe thats down to the Ganja that he was so fond of smoking.

A frequenter of gambling dens and brothels Kali brings nothing but bad luck. He represents the worst possible throw of the dice, has a hand in all murders by planting the dirty seeds in the first place and is in charge of the tempting lure of gold and all of the greed it brings.

His distinctive characteristics make him stand out in a crowd. He is pitch black, carries a huge bone, has an enormous lolling red tongue and absolutely stinks. If you spot him i suggest you steer well clear.

Shiva never fully recovered from the churning incident and remains blue to this day, and yes, i know the 'other' Kali isn't a demon. No more emails please!
