What make HIM/HER o be angry if one worships different forms of the same. A person is a father, son, grand father and so on, so when one does a prayer or namaskram does it affect the person? There is a hidden fear that GOD will be angry. Unfortunately I have to quote: Karmanyeva atikaram asthu, ma phaleshu kathachana" - He has given free will and independence, thus actions are not affecting HIM/HER.
OK, please don't get angry. No one lives know from our sages time and every thing was simple then.

Chapter 4 - Sloka 11

ye yathā mām prapadyante tāms tathaiva bhajāmy aham
mama vartmānuvartante manusyāh pārtha sarvaśah


Meaning​

"In whatever (manner) they approach Me, in the same manner I reward them. O Partha, human beings follow My path in every way.


Commentary

This verse gives the assurance that you can approach God in any way you want and you will be rewarded suitably. God is like a mirror. He is unconditional love, who reflects your thoughts, desires and attitudes exactly as you want. He will not decide what to give you, what you should want or what you should choose for yourself. That responsibility rests with you. It is up to you whether you approach him for material rewards, for spiritual liberation, or for removal of obstacles and difficulties. Whatever want you express to Him, He will manifest that for you.

In this verse, you have the assurance of God that He would not show any favoritism or preference to certain groups, nations and religions. He is not saying, “You follow this particular religion, prophet, scripture or guru and I will liberate you.” He is not telling you that you ought to follow Him against your wishes or in fear of Him. In these few words, He has conveyed amply that He would not impose any conditions upon you in how you may approach Him. You just have to knock on His door with a request, intensely and sincerely, and you will be rewarded. He will not decide what He should give you. You have to decide what you want from Him and make that clear to Him with right aspiration and faith.

However, since He does not interfere with your decisions, you must be clear in your mind what you seek. Those who blame God for not getting what they want are ignorant. They have to blame themselves for their miseries because they do not know how to ask God and how to pray to Him. If you are confused, confusion will prevail. If you are doubtful, uncertainty will manifest. If you are afraid of God, your fear of Him will grow and intensify.

The majority of Hindus do not have a Kula deivam.
They worship GOD, not a diety.
Arya Samaj Hindus do not even have diety. Ancient Hindus also did not have dieties.

Vedic people did not worship images or idols. They worshipped gods through prayers, chants, songs, rituals and sacrificial ceremonies. They envisioned them as divine entities who manifested upon earth as forces of Nature. However, it is also true that they envisioned them with specific names and forms, who in many respects behaved like humans and possessed the same strengths and weaknesses. While they possessed enormous strength and powers, they also depended upon humans for nourishment.
