General definition (in Hinduism)Source: Google Books: Worlds in Collision
The name “Mars” is derviced from the Indian “Marut”; Martus, “the terrible ones” of Isaiah and Joel.Source: archive.org: Sanskrit and its kindred literatures Studies in comparative mythology
Mars of Latin mythology:—Indra is accompanied by the Maruts, the storm winds. This is the same root as the Greek Ares, and the Latin Mars; and the Teutonic Thor Miolnir, the god of war in each mythology. These Maruts overturn trees and destroy forests; they roar like lions; they shake the mountains; they are swift as thought; they are brothers of whom no one is the elder, no one the younger: this is a perfect picture of the wind; and in this character of the Maruts we see blind strength and fury without judgment.
