    @Bhavya Baliga, Udupi, What is the necessity of Varun god for rain?! Just perform marriage of a male frog and a female frog rain will come. Do you not know a few years back some Mangaloreans performed marriage of Frog and Frogi?!

    Life is impossible on planet Earth without lightening. Lightening not only balances electrical charge between Earth and it's atmosphere, converts Nitrogen to nitrates that are converted to proteins by plants and proteins are building blocks of life, not to forget the Ozone production during lightening and there by blocking harmful UV rays...
