Indian Gods form a very important part of not only Indian mythology but also the modern day Hindu religion. Worship of these gods still exist today and the concept of a truly polytheistic society is demonstrated by the reverence provided to almost all the gods within the pantheon.
Indian gods also find themselves to be a major part of various other mythologies in South East Asia like Indonesia, Malaysia, Thai and Cambodia. The Indian mythology also has influenced modern religions like Buddhism and Jainism as well.
They tend to be actively involved in the lives of the mortals and are also seen to be in conflict between themselves for the sake of their devotees. They also assume various forms to interfere in the lives of the mortals including being born to them.
