Ganga Devi - Goddess of the Ganges - first daughter of Mount Himavan - she came back to earth as a result of the austerities of Sage Bhagiratha. As she descended from the heavens she was caught by the matted locks of Lord Shiva's hair to prevent the force of her fall from destroying the earth.
Dhruva Maharaja said: "My dear Lord, You are all-powerful. After entering within me, You have enlivened all my sleeping senses—my hands, legs, ears, touch sensation, life force and especially my power of speech. Let me offer my respectful obeisances unto You." ~ Srimad Bhagavatam 4.9.6
