Very few people know that Lord Ayappa was born to Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu. He is also called as Hariharputra “the son of Vishnu (Hari) and Shiva (Hara)”.
Lord Shiva is also known by the name of “Nilakaṇtha”, which literally means the blue-throated. Once Goddess Parvati learnt that Lord Shiva had swallowed poison, he rushed to hold his neck, so that the poison would not travel neck downwards. That’s how his neck became a deep blue.

Sounds strange, but this is for real. This too was done for ensuring victory to Pandavas. Arjuna’s son Iravan sacrificed himself before Kurukshetra war.
Iravan, was the son of Arjuna from princess Uloopi. Before the start of the Mahabharata war, he agreed to be sacrificed to Goddess Kali to ensure victory for Pandavas. But he had a wish to be married before he died and this created a problem.
There was no girl who would be willingly married to a person who was about to die. Enter Shri Krishna. He became Mohini and married Iravan thus fulfilling his last wish. Not only this, after the death of Iravan, Mohini wept and was sorrowful like a widow.
Vedvyasa – It is said that Vyasa have been born on Guru Poornima day, but also to have started writing the Brahma Sutras on ashadha sudha padyami, which ends on this day. This great sage also wrote Mahabharata. This was the day, when Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa – author of the Mahabharata – was born to sage Parashara and a fisherman’s daughter Satyavati, thus this day is also celebrated as Vyasa Purnima.
