The main narrative is about the rivalry that sprang up between Dakshin Ray and Bara KM Ghazi, a Muslim Pir. This was because merchants who go out on sea-voyages used to worship Daksin Ray and not Bara Khan. This was followed by a conflict in which the tiger armies belonging to the rivals were engaged thereby bringing the world to an end. In order to save the world God came down in a form that was half Krishna and half Muhammad. The Ray-mangal is interesting for its sociological implication. The synthesis between Hinduism and Islam was characteristic of the seventeenth century. It moulded many social customs and religious observances of two communities. The synthesis was most prominent in the cultural sphere thereby giving birth to popular cults like Satya-Pir and Manik-Pir.
