DANG! That was HARD! I didn't know Cronos and I thought Helios would translate to Apollo. Phooey. Also didn't know Nike/Victory, but I should have.

Do more do more! I like this format. Tough but fun.

Um...OK, I've racked my brain and can't come up with anything. I'm going with TRICK QUESTION. They don't have a particular "home base" right?

KEERECT !

Some live in caves, swamps, olive groves, etc. depending on their "responsibilities". Some even live in your Hearth, assuming of course you still HAVE a hearth .........

Oooo radhuni thats too cool for school! Thanks so much!

Where do Hindu gods live? Are they like the Roman gods and they live in your hearth and home or do they have a central location?

What do you mean by that?

I did'nt copy and paste, I really know their equivalents, I love mythology.

I read 'Iliad' and 'Odyssey' in English, I know their similarities with our two epics 'Ramayana' and 'Mahabharata'. The comparison of Hector with Karna (both are my favourite characters). The interference of gods and goddesses in all four epics.
