A giant mouse had created havoc near Rishi Parashar’s ashram. Everyday, many rishis complained of his menace, but couldn’t kill the mouse or mushak, nor could they stop him from destroying their yagnas, crops, household items or anything else

One day, Gajanan was playing in front of his foster-mother, Rishi-patni Vatsala. While Parashar was perturbed over the destruction that the little mushak caused, young Gajanan looked at his foster-father. He wondered, “I should take care of this. Afterall, it is my duty to help my father and end his misery.” Click here to read the story of Taming the Mushakraj
