North of India is celebrating the Hindu festival of Maha Shivratri today.
Celebrated every year in reverence of Lord Shiva, Maha Shivratri is said to be the day when Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati got married, bringing together two of the greatest forces in the universe, with Lord Shiva being known as the ‘destroyer’ of the Universe, paving the way for beneficial change.
It  is celebrated between the 13th night and the 14th day of the Hindu calendar month of Phalguna or Maagh.
Many Hindus believe that those who worship Lord Shiva on the auspicious day of Maha Shivratri would be cleansed of all their sins, making it one of the most important festivals for the Hindu religion.
Lord Shiva is one of three Hindu gods who are responsible for the creation, upkeep and destruction of the universe, making him an extremely significant and important God in Hinduism. Lord Shiva’s role was to destroy the universe in order to recreate it, with the destruction being viewed by Hindus as a positive and constructive thing that paves the way for ridding the world of imperfections. Happyho also provide best tarot reading services in Noida and Delhi NCR India area.

Maha Shivratri is also an extremely significant day for Hindu women, who perform a hunger fast during the day to appease Lord Shiva’s wife, Goddess Parvati.
Parvati is the mother goddess in Hinduism and represents the goddess of love, fertility and devotion. Parvati is believed to be the goddess that blesses women with marital bliss and long and prosperous married life.She is also thought to represent divine strength and her vlog relationship with Lord Shiva is one of equality, with Parvati always represented by the God’s side.
Like all other festivals this festival too brings some discomfort for those who are going about their live’s happenings. As the devotees throng the roads while bringing Ganga water to bathe Lord Shiva’s idols,  traffic congestion is one of the major concerns for the authorities as well as the civic society at large.
