CONCEPT :

In some Indian beliefs, Shiva (the goddess of dance, love and deconstruction) will come back alive one day and will ruin the whole world in order to reconstruct it for good. It will happen in a time called Kally ages (dark ages) when people’s heart symbolically will turn to cemeteries. No emotion nor faith will exist by that time. In such a time, Shiva will start dancing in a cemetery and while his madly dancing, he will be called SUDDHALAIYADI that means : A dancer on the ashes of cemeteries.
