    DescriptionThe stories of Hindu mythology cover everything from love and jealousy to petty grievances and epic battles, with characters ranging from monsters and demons to noble warriors and divine divas. This guide tells us why Ganesha has an elephant's head, why Kali, the Goddess of Time, is known as 'the Black One', and more.
