Vayu is the god of, or personification of, wind, air or lifebreath (PraI) a). As the lord of
the sky (Antariksa) he shares his power with Indra. He rides in a chariot drawn by two, ninety-nine, hundred or even thousand horses, (the number perhaps, depends upon his wish to produce an ordinary wind current or a storm or a cyclone!)
