Bollywood’s Naag Panchami is a Dazzling Explosion of Color

What is it about women and snakes? Always lots a trouble with those women and their snakes. In this case it is the story of the petulant goddess Mansa. She is the goddess of snakes and she wants attention, lots of attention. She is determined to be worshipped by everyone on Earth. She is the daughter of the great god Shiva The Destroyer so you better watch out when she comes around. In addition she can make cobras magically appear out of thin air so you better double watch out!
