The story of Kartikeya and Ganesha

Once goddess Parvati had a divine fruit wanted by both her sons Ganesha and Kartikeya.

Lord Shiva decided that the one who circles the world three times and comes back first would get it as a prize.

Kartikeya swiftly got on his peacock and embarked on his voyage.

Ganesha was well aware that his enormous form and his vehicle, the mouse, made his chances of winning the race quite impossible.

After a little thinking, Ganesha started walking around his parents, Lord Shiva and Parvati.

When they asked him why he was not circling the world and just circling them,  he answered, “My world is at my parent’s feet, it starts and ends with them.”

He not only won the fruit but also earned the admiration of other gods.

The Ganesha Kartikeya story highlights the importance of thinking clearly specially in adverse situations.

Panic clouds your judgement so all you need to do is master the art of controlling your intentions and focusing on how to utilise available resources to make the best out of the worst.

Think clearly in a challenging situation and the path to success will appear.

Stay blessed forever.
