The Ganges is the world's holiest river and the lifeblood for 350 million people from the Himalayas to the Bay of Bengal. Hindu mythology says it was created when the water goddess Ganga flowed from the heavens through the long hair of Siva, a member of the supreme Hindu trinity, to free the souls of men and women. For millions of Indians, the Ganges-- Ma Ganga-- literally is God.

Katherine Siva Saubel, an elder of the Cahuilla Indian tribe of Southern California, once described herself as "just a voice in the wilderness all by myself. " She meant that she had few people with whom she could speak the Cahuilla language or sing the songs that conveyed her people's ancient stories. "My race," she told The Times in 2000, "is dying. " Now Saubel, long its feistiest guardian, has died. "It's a huge loss … the end of an era," said Nathalie Colin, an ethno-historian at the Malki Museum near Banning, which Saubel co-founded more than 45 years ago to preserve Cahuilla history and traditions.

Ramaa Bharadvaj and Uma Suresh bill themselves as "the dancing twins of South India." Students and teachers of both the Bharatha Natyam and Kuchipudi styles of dancing, the Orange County-based duo has spent several years developing and producing "Facets of Siva,"a devotional pageant to various aspects of the Hindu Lord of the Dance. The work was first shown in Madras last summer.

On Feb. 6, a baby boy was born, six weeks premature, at Sibley Hospital in Washington. His mother had been hospitalized during her pregnancy twice before--once for dehydration and again for very early labor--and the delivering obstetrician was on the lookout for more trouble. He got it. The baby didn't breathe properly and after a brief examination, he ordered him immediately transferred by ambulance to Georgetown Hospital's high-tech Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. He needed the best of care.

Alvino Siva had scarcely passed 5 years of age when the Cahuilla Indian Bird Songs first stirred his soul. The 1920s were drawing to a close, and Siva was living on the Agua Caliente Reservation east of here, in a stark desert land shared with the cactus and coyote. On holidays and other festive occasions, the bird songs would emerge--flowing from the lips of Cahuilla tribal elders who, in turn, had adopted them from their forebears.

ATLANTA -- Florida Gulf Coast was a carnival cruise while it lasted and Wichita State was a hoot, but there will be nothing "mid" about the majors playing for Monday's national title. The final call is strictly blue grass vs. blue blood. Louisville, the top overall No.1 team in the tournament, will play Michigan from the Big Ten, the nation's top overall conference this season. Everyone else — thanks for participating. In Saturday's national semifinal games in front of a football-sized Georgia Dome crowd, Louisville held off interloper Wichita State, 72-68, then Michigan survived the vortex that had been Syracuse's zone defense, 61-56.

ATLANTA -- When Kevin Ware's leg snapped unnaturally and horrifically in front of Louisville's bench less than a week ago, players collapsed on the court, turned away in horror and some cried. Except Luke Hancock. The junior forward knelt by Ware's side, praying over him, saying later that he didn't want Ware to feel alone. As calm as he was in the face of horror in the Elite Eight, he was just as poised Saturday night in the Georgia Dome as Louisville faced a Final Four collapse.

In Hindu cosmology, it is sound that leads to creation. "Lord Siva, when represented in dancing form, holds a drum in his hand, and when beating this drum, the sound that comes out creates the universe," says Indian dancer Ramaa Bharadvaj who, with her twin sister Uma Suresh, has created the "Facets of Siva" dance concert on Sunday at the Irvine Barclay Theatre. So it is not surprising that dance, according to Hindu aesthetics, says Suresh, "should be divine, holy.

Siva and Sakti are the first parents in the Hindu pantheon of gods. Legends and myths surround them and their children. But they are not myths in the sense of make-believe. "The characters of the myths and legends, we worship them," said Sridevi Thirumalai, who will appear in the dance-drama "Siva Sakti" on Sunday at the Irvine Barclay Theatre. "Most of our dance-dramas collect information from myths and legends," she said. "But, in fact, we worship the characters.
