in the show Revati is shown to be the daughter of Daksh and wife of Chandra-who married 27 of Dakshas daughters who are said to be the 27 nakshatras,
but however if i clearly remember Revati is supposed to be the wife of Balram Krishnas brother

Its not the same Revati, same name, two different people!

@ Shali i havent heard of the story eitherConfused
as far as i have searched on the net,the first thing i did once i read the article...
Madanika as a name means Aroused\Exited,they are also called Salabhanjika(source Wikipedia),she basically is a celestial nymph,like an apsara..
from what i found a Madanika is a sculpture,rather than being a person which adorns temples,representing a beautiful,full bodied dancer,who adorned the temples of both Vishnu and Shiva,they are situated in Karnataka.
But other than this i dont think there is any connection.Ouch
the amswer to your next question

Crescent Moon

Often depicted on Lord Shiva's head is a crescent moon, representing the cyclical nature of the universe. The waxing and waning of the moon symbolizes the cycle through which creation evolves. Furthermore, since Lord Shiva is the Eternal Reality, He is beyond time and the cycle of creation.

Q: My knowledge on Shiv-Sati's story is very minimal. I am wondering if this serial is showing what exactly happened or not? Read on few other threads ppl mentioning that this serial is based on a book? Is this right?

the show is based on the works of a mythological writer names Devdutt Patnaik..and not Amish Tripathis novel the Secret of the Nagas..
there is some stuff altered,the situations,some scenes etc..but however the story isnt distorted that much!

http://devdutt.com/the-waxing-of-the-waning-employee/ 

Chandra, the moon-god, disobeyed his father-in-law, Daksha Prajapati. Daksha had given him 27 wives and told him that he should love all wives equally.  Chandra, however, preferred only one of them. An angry Daksha, therefore cursed Chandra, that he would suffer from the wasting disease. Each day, his luster would wane and eventually he would disappear forever.  As a result, the moon started to wane.  A terrified Chandra did not know what to do. Being a Deva, a sky-god, he turned to his king, Indra, and begged him for help.  "The only person you can turn to is Shiva," said Indra,  "because he is not a Deva.  He is a Maha-Deva, greater than all gods put together."

Chandra went to Shiva but Shiva was a silent god, with eyes shut, deep in meditation.  Chandra sat before him, trembling, afraid, desperate for help.  Shiva opened his eyes, looked at the miserable moon-god. Without speaking a word,  Shiva picked Chandra up and gently placed him on his forehead. Instantly, the moon began to wax once again.  Daksha had caused Chandra to degenerate; Shiva had helped him regenerate. Chandra realized why Indra had addressed Shiva as Maha-deva; he was not just god (spelt without capitals).  He was God (spelt in capitals). Chandra established the festival of Shiva-ratri each month, at the tail end of the waning half of the lunar month.  And once a year, he established the Maha-Shiva-ratri, to mark the end of the winter months and the waxing of the summer seasons.
