It is well known that Hinduism comprises many gods, deities, or things to be worshipped. Some of them are humanoid but others are not. What is not well known is that there are not just humanoid gods, but also human gods in India. There is Rajinikanth who is a god of acting (this is true; just read his biographies at Imdb and Wikipedia), as well as Amitabh Bachchan, and perhaps Shahrukh Khan (who is known as King Khan) and Aamir Khan (who has been given the designation of Emperor Khan). Historical gods of acting include Raj Kapoor (who emulated Charlie Chaplin) and his brother Shammi Kapoor (who was likened to Elvis Presley) although not the third brother of Sashi Kapoor (perhaps because he could not meet the high expectations); Dev Anand, Dilip Kumar, Raaj Kumar, Rajesh Khanna, Rekha (who is both historical and present) and others.
There is also Prabhudeva who is a god of dance, A.R. Rahman (the only Indian to win two Oscars) as a musical director, Srinivasa Ramanujan as the god of mathematics who died at the young age of 32 (although his widow passed away about two decades ago at the age of 94).
Most pertinently are Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag, as the gods of cricket (certainly a revered sport in India, as shown in this “Sehwag vs. Sachin: Double Century” infographic. We aver that Sachin is our god, but read this infographic and decide for yourself.
Likes: The comparison and contrast of them, which shows them to be remarkably evenly matched.
Dislikes: The constant reference to the myth of numerology in India is a constant annoyance, and is evident here in “ODI Number”.
