Dashavatar, Kamaal HassanThis is the story on an incident which took place in 12th century . It was during the rule of Chozha dynasty when Hindus were divided into Saivites and Vaishnavites. Rangarajan Nambi is a loyal disciple of Ramanuja Azhwar. The story revolves around the10 avatars and how they fight for the statue of Lord Ranganatha which was immersed in the sea along with Nambi. In the present day, the other three avatars fight for the acquiring the statue.The four great era or epochs in Hinduism are: Satya Yug, Treta Yug, Dwapar Yug and Kali Yug. Satya Yug or the Age of Truth is said to last for four thousand divine years, Treta Yug for three thousand, Dwapara Yug for two thousand and Kali Yug will last for one thousand divine years. It is also believed that three of these great ages have already passed, and we are now living in the fourth one. The four ages are said to symbolize the four phases of human evolution during which man gradually lost the awareness of his inner self. Another theory explains these epochs of time on the basis of the degree of loss of righteousness in the world. It says, during Satya Yug only truth prevailed (Sanskrit Satya = truth), Treta lost ¼ truth, Dwapar lost ½ truth and Kali is left with only ¼ truth. Evil and dishonesty has replaced truth in the last three ages or yugs.
