Saranyu (Saraṇyū), Saranya, or Saraniya (also known as Sanjana, Sangya, Randal, Ravi Randal) is the wife of Surya, and the goddess of clouds in Hindu mythology, the mother of Revant and the twin Asvins (the Indian Dioscuri). She is also the mother of Manu, and of the twins Yama and Yami. According to Farnell, the meaning of the epithet is to be sought in the original conception of Erinys, which was akin to Ge.
