Lord Shiva - The Matchmaker God
In Hinduism, there's a fast to honor practically every deity. In northern India, Monday is Shiva's day, while on Tuesday; the Hanuman devotees keep a fast. In the South, the Tuesday fast honors Skanda, while Thursday is the fast day for Vishnu. In the intimate rituals of vrata or fasting, devotees come close to the deity, adding their personal wishes to their prayers.
