Happy Mahashivratri, folks! A night, celebrating the existence and blessings of Lord Shiva, one of the Tridevs (Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva) of Hinduism. He is regarded as one of the supreme beings who creates, protects and transforms the universe. Whereas, his existence is no question amongst those who have heard his name, the origin stories of Mahashivratri differ. While some believe that Shiva agreed to save the world, with earnest requests from Goddess Parvati, on this day, certain folklores suggest that this was his favourite day, when asked by Parvati. But inconsequential to the origin of the festival, all Hindus celebrate this occasion with enthusiasm.
