Shiva's Wedding

on BBC Radio 4 FM

The first of two programmes exploring the role of gods and goddesses in Indian life. Journalist Ruchira Gupta celebrates the wedding day of the god Shiva and explores his image as a long-haired poster pin-up, a drinking and dancing god, and a patron of outcasts and ascetics.
