KBC 2021: According to Hindu mythology, what is the name of the brother of Aruna, Suryadev's charioteer? 

Varuna

Sampati

Garuda

Jatayu

Answer: Garuda

Garuda is a divine eagle-like sun bird and the king of birds. A Garutman is mentioned in the Rigveda who is described as celestial deva with wings. The Shatapatha Brahmana embedded inside the Yajurveda text mentions Garuda as the personification of courage. In the Mahabharata, Garutman is stated to be the same as Garuda, then described as the one who is fast, who can shapeshift into any form and enter anywhere. He is a powerful creature in the epics, whose wing-flapping can stop the spinning of heaven, earth, and hell. He is described to be the vehicle mount of the Hindu god Vishnu, and typically they are shown together.
