3294 : Brahma vs Vishnu

So I am talking to my 10-year-old, and she is a terror.

She refuses to read unless it's on her terms. Now she has taken to reading ACK (Amar Chitra Katha) on a prodigious basis....and the best part is she seems to remember very complex stories (like Mahabharata with its 100+ characters) seems to remember them well.

So she is talking to me the other day. And this is how our chat goes.

She: Have been reading stories about Vishnu, Brahma, and Shiva.

Me: Good. And.....

S: It's funny (that's the phrase she uses!!).

M: Why? (I am intrigued)

S: Brahma's only job is to give random people boons.

M: Hmmmm (listening)

S: He gives boons to completely evil folks. And then Vishnu has to come in and solve the issue always.

M: Always?

S: Yes. Without Brahma - half of mythology ACK won't exist.

At this point, I burst out laughing. Honestly, I had never made this strange observation. It's right, she is correct?
