Indian Love God

God of Love and Desire

He is a beautiful Hindu youth who rides an elephant or a parrot (yes, a parrot) and has a CUPID-like bow made of sugar cane.

He is a somewhat open-minded God of Desire. It is just as well we don’t all desire the same things.

This is what comes of having VISHNU and LAKSHMI for parents.
