Who is the Mother of Lord Shiva?

Many people want to know who is the mother of Lord Shiva? It is as though someone had asked the question in a quiz. Shiva is the Supreme Truth. Shiva has no mother and no father. All that we see on the earth and hear about present in the universe is Shiva. Everything is born in Shiva and everything undergoes transformation in Shiva. Shiva is Ardhanarishwara. Male and Female is Shiva.

Who is the father of Arjun in the Mahabharat?

Arjun was the third of Pandavas. His mother was Kunti. Who is the father of Arjuna in the Mahabharat is explained below in the story. She was married to Pandu. But Pandu could not have sexual union with Kunti because of a curse. Kunti due to her service to Sage Durvasa had got a boon that she will be able to summon a god and have children in him. Pandu requested Kunti to make use of the boon. Thus Arjuna was born when Kunti summoned Indra, the king of the Devas.
But as per social custom that was followed at the time of Mahabharata, Pandu is the father of Arjuna.
