THATAKA
Also known as TATAKA, TARAKA(2)

A Demoness with very unsociable habits

Biting the tops off mountains and spitting them at people was not an endearing practice. RAMA and LAKSHMANA were given the task of persuading her to desist. They lopped off various bits: her ears to stop her listening, her nose to stop her tracing by scent, a few arms to stop her throwing the really heavy mountain bits but still she persisted.

In the end RAMA had to shoot her with an arrow, although it went against the grain of his chivalry.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Thataka graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Thataka movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Thataka statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Thataka. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
