Once upon a time, there was a sage named Agastya who wished to seek the blessings of Lord Brahma and Lord Shiva. He wanted to create a river flowing in a direction which offered water to the Southern lands. His prayers were heard by Gods and they filled his kamandalu (water pot) with sacred water.
On his way to the South, Sage Agastya wanted to relieve himself and have a wash. He saw a small boy and requested him to take care of his kamandalu. This small boy was Lord Ganesha himself who placed the pot on the ground as he found that to be an ideal location for the river. When Agastya returned he found a crow sitting on the pot and the sage shooed him away.
However as the crow flew off it tipped the pot
to the ground and the water split and hence this took the form of River Kaveri. A trouble may actually be a blessing in disguise. Tell stories about Lord
Ganesha and develop spiritual feeling within every kid.
