Yet there is another version that Lord Siva showered Kanaka on a righteous king once. It runs-there was once a poor woman living by selling tamarind - intrini jeevini during the reign of Madhava varma in the beginning of Kaliyuga, as early as Saka year 177. He was renowned for Dharmaparipalana and holding scales even always - he went by the merits of complaints than the persons involved. He was above swa-para distinctions. So became popular here and above. Gods too were contented more than the subjects in fact. This intrini-jeevini had a son, an only one at it. She brought him up well and intended to lean on him during old age. But he was killed by the prince by accident than intent. With eyes streaming and face pathetic - a perfect copy of Sokadevatha, she stood before the king Madhava Varma for justice, as he was justice personified. Listening to the prosecution and learning that the accused was his son, he at once passed the verdict-death by hanging to the prince; the scales were kept even. The whole assembly hailed him as Nyayadevatha. The uproarious joy rending the sky, reached the mount Kailas. The All-Compassionate Lord Siva appeared right on the dias and showered kanaka on the king for upholding justice.
