Brahma creates the stages, Visnhu preserves them and when the play has finished, Shiva comes and destroys the entire stage.
The stage can become anything, like a classroom for younger souls, a safeplace to grow and develop, to practice hindu theology. It can be a play about
war, it can be a play about 2 lovers, it can be about growing civilizations.
But as there are beginnings, there must be endings, without Shiva there would be many beings who would cling to previous stages, unable to let go of
the good times, reliving each life over and over without memories of the previous life. Or they don't die at all and become increasingly old, never
to be reborn as the young.
Not one of the standard interpretations but this is how I see the hindu trinity working together.
