So what makes the shaman such an important part of the community?

Anu meets Hardayal, the oracular shaman, and witnesses his divination sessions, where locals “chat” informally with their deity through him. Anu discovers that these “conversations with God” through the shaman are part of the everyday lives of the people of Kullu Valley – and she is taken aback by the ease with which they commune with their gods.

And any skepticism that Anu may have harbored about such matters is shattered where she has her own up-close and personal encounter with Tej Singh, the shaman of a snake god who accurately intuits a major problem that Anu has been facing.
