  1. Subrahmanya Swāmi: Lord Kārttikeya
    "It is difficult to find a more complex deity in the Brahmanical pantheon than Skanda-Kārttikeya. His most well-known portfolio is that of the Commander-in-Chief of the celestials; but he also appears as a Maha Yogi and a patron of learning. He is depicted, elsewhere, as a god worshipped by the thieves and robbers and a god of amorous love, a malignant god harassing children and new-born babes. Some other outlandish traits are also found in his character." -Asim Kumar Chatterjee
