History

Shani a keen devotee of Lord Shiva, he was always absorbed in deep thoughts about him. His father, Surya, arranged him to marry Dhamini, the goddess of dance and art. One day, Dhamini came to ask Shani what she thought of her appearance. But Shani was in deep thought and didn't even bother to look at her. She got so annoyed that she cursed so that whoever he were to gaze at would be devastating, that it why his eyes always looked down.
