Lord Shiva. I didn’t pay much attention growing up, but I think he represents the underrepresented, and promotes tolerance like no one else.
Shivaratri was always one of my favorite festival because, that night was a night-out. Parents didn’t bother us by asking to sleep on time. We would go out to the streets with friends to watch the movies played on a large screen. “Bhukailas” was always played, and it never bored even after watching every year, especially because of a stellar performance by NTR. Then there would be a Chiranjeevi movie and a Balayya or some other’s movie.
Happy Maha Shiva Ratri!
