In my daughter' s school, they had a play about the different forms of Durga. They had nine children to act the different parts. It was a very nice play. I feel this is an excellent way to teach children.

Hi Anandita. In response to your query, Uma is simply another name for Shiva´ s wife. Each form is known by more than one name. What name you may have heard of will depend on which part of the country you come from.
