    Its a good start to introduce our daivas to the world.
    So that lot of misconceptions get cleared.

    In this universe it not only we humans/animals/plants that occupy. There are also energies that are not seen are amongst us. They harm none. They are protective energies.

    Good short movie, and hope they produce more such eye-opener cultural icons.
