This special issue of Amar Chitra Katha comics features three deities from the Hindu Pantheon. The stories featured in this collection are: Shiva and Sati ; Shiva and Parvati; and Tales of Durga.

In the Hindu pantheon Shiva represents the supreme consciousness as well as the male principle which acquires the power to create and destroy the elements only in conjunction with Shakti, the female principle. Thus Shiva's consort is the manifestation of the supreme consciousness and that was why Vishnu and others were keen to see Shiva married to Sati.

Sati was reborn as Parvati who wooed and won Shiva, never to be separated from him again.

Shakti, the female principle, activated Shiva and is therefore worshipped as Durga, the personification of universal energy. The worship of Durga can be traced to the mother worship of the ancient pre-Aryan cults.
