Loki Laufeyson, Prince of Asgard, Odinson, brother to Thor - the god of thunder, rightful heir of Jotunheim, and God of Mischief, is burdened with glorious purpose. His desire to be a king drives him to sow chaos in Asgard. In his lust for power, he extends his reach to Earth. He is a Marvel Comics character and one of the main characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The original Loki from Norse mythology is portrayed as a scheming, mischievous deity who has no real loyalties. His role is shrouded in mystery and his purpose in the ancient stories is unclear. Within the pantheon of Norse gods, he was an anomaly. His fellow gods are mostly one dimensional and Loki is anything but. Loki is the antithesis to the culture the Norse gods represented; honor, courage & fidelity.
And then let’s admit it. We all have vegetables that we avoid. The bottle gourd (‘Lauki’ in Hindi) gets its share of hate in spite of being packed with health benefits.
This design from our Desi Vibes and Mad About Movies Collection draws parallels between Loki and Lauki - be it the lack of universal love, green and gold exterior, or their versatile adaptability.
