  GRAMA DEVATHAS

ORIGIN:  

A cursory galance at their earliest appearance furnishes valuable information about man's struggles against the most formidable forces into which he was thrown. In the initial stage of his coming into the world, and living amidst the most savage beasts and venomous creatures, rather cohabitation with them was forced upon him. Unexpected danger and its instant onset drained his instincts of vigour and bravado. When fell prey to blood thirsty quardrupeds and multipeds, he sought means for self protection. Weapons in their crude and unpolished nature slowly came to be invented. Various shapes and sizes gradually, entered the field, Yet, he was not out of danger. Mysterious forces of nature too confronted and floored him on occasions many. Realizing his insignificant might against shockingly harrowing and appallingly obnoxious inimical elements seen and unseen, he turned his head upwards and started appealing to the superhuman powers to screening himself from perilous position and to granting strength and stand against both earthly and heavenly agencies bent upon snipping out the flame of his life. He then started praying to them giving shapes and names to the forces jeopardizing his earthly sojourn.
