    About Indrani

    Indrani is the consort of Lord Indra, also known as the God of Thunder and Lightning. She is the Goddess of wrath and jealousy because every soul desired for her because of her beauty. She is also known as Aindri, Mahendri and Pulomaja but her another famous name is Shachi. Shachi is derived from a Sanskrit word, Shak or Shach which means Shakti (power). This Shakti is possessed only by a female Goddess and not a male. Thus, she is considered to be a very independent woman, being Shakti in herself. Unlike goddesses who are known by the names of their husbands like Varuni (wife of Varun, The God of Sky) and SaranyaSaranyaSaranya
    Also known as Saraniya, Sanjna and Sangya is the Goddess of clouds and dawn. She is the wife of Surya (Sun God)...
