Sandhya (Saraṇyū), Saranya, or Saraniya (also known as Sanjana, Sangya, Randal, Ravi Randal) is the wife of Surya, the twin of Trisiras, and the goddess of clouds in Hindu mythology, the mother of Revant and the twin Asvins (the Indian Dioscuri). She is also the mother of Manu, and of the twins Yama and Yami. According to Farnell, the meaning of the epithet is to be sought in the original conception of Erinys, which was akin to Ge.
Saranyu has been described as "the swift-speeding storm cloud".
- Saranyu or Sanghya is also depicted in the show, Karmaphal Daata Shani, which is airing on Colors TV.
