  1. One important aspect of the process of Sanskritisation is the identification of a local god or goddess with some deity of the Hindu pantheon.
  2. The two examples are:
  3. The Coorg deity Ketrappa is identified with the Vedic deity Kshetrapala
  4. The Cobra deity among the Coorgs is identified with Subramanya or Skanda, the son of Shiva.
