My robot is named Kalki. The name Kalki means literally, “of iron” or “machine.” As this avatar, Lord Vishnu will incarnate himself as the machine-man, who will come riding his white horse and a blazing sword in his hands. He takes on his multi-armed form and as he punishes all evil-doers in this world, he recites the verse from the Hindu scripture;
‘Now i am become death, destroyer of worlds.’
At the end of Kali Yuga, he will, destroy this world supposedly and recreate a golden age again.
