Indra called all the sages to his meeting, Cronch also joined in this meeting. Here, by mistake, the foot of
Kronch was placed on the feet of a sage. Infuriated by this, the sage cursed Kronch to become a mouse.

mouse did not give any answer. That is why Ganesh Ji further said to the mouse
that now you are in my shelter, so ask me whatever you want, but do not disturb
Maharishi Parashar.

On this the arrogant mouse said to Ganesh Ji, 'I do not want anything from you. Yes, if you want, you can
ask me for something." Seeing this pride, Ganesh Ji asked the mouse to become his ride. The mouse
obeyed him and agreed to become the ride. Sitting upstairs, he started pressing on his body by filling
them heavily. The mouse tried a lot but could not take a step forward with Ganesh Ji.
the pride of the mouse was shattered and he said to Ganesh Ji, "Ganpati Bappa! Forgive me. I am being
suppressed by your weight." By accepting this apology, Ganesh Ji reduced his weight. Thus he called the
