Parjanya Astra
(also known as Parjanyastra, Megha Astra, Meghastra)

Parjanyastra is a celestial weapon in Hindu mythology which can summon clouds, rain, thunder, and obscure the light of the sun. The presiding deity is Indra, lord of the rains. In Sanskrit it means "weapon capable of generating rain" (par = related to rain, janya = generating, astra = weapon). It is also referred to as Meghastra (megha = cloud).

Arjuna used the Parjanya Astra during a demonstration of skill in the Mahabharata, Adi Parva section 137.

"By the Agneya weapon, he created fire, and by the Varuna weapon he created water, by the Vayavya weapon, he created air, and by the Parjanya weapon he created clouds. And by the Bhauma weapon, he created land, and by the Parvatya weapon, he brought mountains into being. By the Antardhana weapon all these were made to disappear."

Thanks to Jijith Nadumuri Ravi from Ancient Voice.

Thanks for your retdamenomcions on this blog. A single thing I would choose to say is the fact that purchasing electronic devices items from the Internet is certainly not new. Actually, in the past ten years alone, the market for online consumer electronics has grown noticeably. Today, you will discover practically any kind of electronic unit and product on the Internet, ranging from cameras and camcorders to computer components and gambling consoles.
