Annopurna is the goddess for food and nourishment. In hindu religion we often hear that wasting food is disrespecting goddess, we meant Annopurna mata. This goddess is considered as an avatar of Devi Parvati and wife of Lord Shiva. If we break the name then it comes as “Anno” which means food in bengali “Purna” it is the fulfillment or a full of food; therefore, the combination of the word came from.
