When all the Gods were looking to obtain the elixir for immortality, none would come forward to drink the poison to lead them to it. Shiva, is known to have come forward to drink all the poison, accepting a fate of certain death. This tale that would turn Shiva’s throat blue, instead of killing him is legend. Mr Kiran Nagarkar, who is currently in Manipal as part of the scholar-in-residence program, will narrate the story and engage in an interactive session.
