Devastated by the death of his first wife, he withdrew from the world to live alone in a cave, and focused on meditation. Eventually drawn to Parvati through her devotion to him - though he is deeply in love with Parvati, no one could take the place of his first wife, who possessed the cherished golden skin.

Parvatiís Golden Skin - An enchanting fable about the dangers of changing yourself for others, instead of recognizing the beauty you already possess.
Hindu mythology tells the tale of dark-skinned beauty Parvati, who gave up everything to share a life with her husband Shiva. Tiring of his comments about her skin, Parvati looks for a way to change herself in order to please him. The spiteful Adi takes advantage of this situation, and uses the lovely Kaamla to drive a wedge between the otherwise happy couple. Will it all end in tragedy, or will love prevail?
