Ganga followed Bhageeratha's triumphal chariot; the waters danced and shone like
lightning flashes as the river made its course and the Devas and Gandharvas assembled
above to witness the grand sight. Sometimes slow and sometimes fast, now sliding down and
now jumping up, the river went on dancing behind Bhageeratha's chariot and the folk of
heaven enjoyed the sight all the way.
On her course, Ganga damaged the yaaga platform
of a rishi by name Jahnu. The rishi took the entire flood in his palm and sipped it off.
Ganga disappeared again and Bhageeratha was sorely perplexed.
