Interesting. I found something similar in a different part of the world. In those cultures, apparently they mean well (and not the malevolent image David Icke has painted of them). They are also not considered Gods, although still worshipped as they are half-divine. There are multiple levels of divinity below what would be considered "God" in a Christian sense.
naga, in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism, a member of a class of mythical semidivine beings, half human and half cobra. They are a strong, handsome species who can assume either wholly human or wholly serpentine form and are potentially dangerous but often beneficial to humans.
The creator deity Brahma relegated the nagas to the nether regions when they became too populous on earth and commanded them to bite only the truly evil or those destined to die prematurely.
Note: I believe "nether regions" could be a mistranslation, and doesn't mean below the ground (or on Earth necessarily).
Brahma is one of the three top Gods, all three considered equal in some sects while in others one of the three (eg: Vishnu) is considered the original.
The female nagas (naginis or nagis) are serpent princesses of striking beauty. The dynasties of Manipur in northeastern India, the Pallavas in southern India, and the ruling family of Funan (ancient Indochina) each claimed an origin in the union of a human being and a nagi.
They aren't depicted with a tall skull though, only a serpentine lower body: https://fineartamerica.com/featured/nagas-at-rajarani-temple-orissa-india-david-wells.html
Unfortunately the Muslim invaders destroyed most temples in Northern India and also burned the largest library in the world at the time, even though it was a doctor from that university that saved his life (at Nalanda University which had 9 million manuscripts). So most of the Indian heritage is lost.
Although currently, the Church has also joined in trying to destroy the India that remains (India receives the most amount of aid, a lot of which is used to convert people). The demographic changes in some parts of India are astounding, and used for political purposes. It is basically a continuous stream of invasions on a civilizational level going on for the last 1000 years. You can understand why Indians hate Abrahamic faiths (except Jews, who haven't (openly) tried to subvert it).
you just had to end it like that….(((they))) dont invade imdia, just the rest of the world
My apologies. I was momentarily saddened when I was thinking about what was lost. It was knee jerk emotional reflex to write that. I don't hate Muslims and Christians personally.
Or are you talking about Jews in particular? Yes trust me I understand that currently what is happening, ((they)) are pulling the strings. Even if they aren't the ultimate head of the snake, they do have their hand on the knife that is being used to kill. But I was talking from the perspective of 99.999% of India. Almost none of the are aware of the conspiracies that exist in the West. All they see (and have been taught) is that Jews have been persecuted, so they see some similarity to their own situation. There are many parallels between Israel and India in terms of demographics (% of minority), timeline (both created just 1 year apart), both being ancient civilizations etc.
Unlike the West, historically there was never a noteworthy Jewish presence in India, so they're innocent about it (unlike the countries which had enough and kicked them out). They think Jews are some kind of allies, simply because publicly Israel has always supported the Indian state.
