On the festival of Maha Shivratri, devotees observe day and night fast and worship Shiva Lingam to appease Lord Shiva. There is another very popular Shivratri legend from the Puranas, which explains why people stay awake all night on Shivratri and why Lord Shiva is also known as Neelkantha. According to the story, when the battle between devas and asuras took place, a pot of poison came out of the ocean and on the request of the gods, drank the poison. The poison was so potent that it changed the colour of his neck to blue. For this reason, Lord Shiva is called Neelkanth where neela stands for blue and kantha means neck or throat. As part of therapy, lord Shiva was advised to stay awake during night. Thus, to keep Shiva awake, the gods performed various dances and played music. Pleased with their devotion, he blessed them all, the next morning. Therefore Shivratri is the   celebration of this event in which Shiva saved the world.
