Bishwa Nath Singh

Shivaratri is celebrated on the 13th (or 14th) day of the dark half of Phalgun It falls today i.e. on the 2nd of March 2011. Shivarati literary means the night of Shiva. The entire ceremonies take place chiefly at night. This is a festival observed in honor of Lord Shiva to commemorate his marriage with Parvati that was solemnized on this day. Usually most of us observe a strict fast on this day. Some devotees do not even take a drop of water. They keep vigil all night
