Abstract

In ancient times, the principal Indian languages then referred the planet Mars primarily as Mangala and also with names like Angaraka and Kuja. These names mean auspicious, burning coal (red in colour) and the fair one, respectively. There are various references in different periods of history about Mars but mostly all lead to indicate that the Mars is a god of war.
