dear Saturn! Glad to hear of the absolute sovereignty you are
exercising over everyone in the fourteen worlds; none is spared, nor
your grip is light even on the celestials. Will you please tell me
the secret of your strength and its origin?", Lord Maheswar
questioned Saturn at an accidental meeting in a humorous vein.
"Does the Omniscient seek enlightenment from a nincompoop like
me. I am only discharging my duty as ordained. No more jesting
please.", Saturn tried to evade him knowing that it is not wise
to enter into discussion with the Highest; for, it does harm than
good in the long run. "I can't leave you with such evasive
answer, tell me, how you succeed in holding your grip over the Trio,
they too are subject to Sanibadha, and taste the fruit of
ill-luck", harassed the Lord continuing it further.
"Destiny can neither be hoaxed, nor bypassed, my Lord! Everyone
reaps as he sows. Aren't the Highest too passing through gloomy
night after the sunny day? In life, there is boom, but every boom
has its doom." completed Saturn, hinting that even he - the
Lord of Kailas too is no exception, and he will not elude his grasp.
"In that case, will you stretch your long arm to hold your grip
on me, wont you" quipped the Lord! "Certainly at the right
time" pat came the reply. "Then take a chance on the next
Monday morning" the Lord challenged him in a tone serious.
"Accepted" fell from Saturn's lips before turning his back
