KANYAKUMARI

It so coincided that Lord Maheswar was attracted by her unearthly glamour and blooming beauty. Soon consultations etc. were initiated, and they ended in fixing the alliance.  When everything was going on smooth towards the happy solemnization, Narada, the celestial trouble-shooter entered the scene to frustrate that divine union; for, that demon could be killed by a Virgin only.  It was the boon he got, and that was his plus point.  And it the wedding were to take place as proposed, neither the Mother Earth would be relived of her anguish, nor the purpose of parasakti's assuming the form -of Virgin would be accomplished.  Keeping Lokakalyana in mind, he approached both the patties in the role of well-wisher and fixed a certain midnight as auspicious hour for solemnization.

Convinced with the planetary position, all agreed. Extremely jubilant at the prospect of getting united with Parvathi, Lord Siva started with pramadaganas etc. for Kanyakumari, the bride's place. When he was half-way, he heard the crowing of cock, heralding the break of dawn.  It was Narada's play, who taking the cock's form crowed, only to stop the wedding and enabling the Virgin to kill Bana. Missing the opportunity of marrying, dejected Maheswar, settled down at Suchidram.  And the dispirited Parvathi took a vow then to remain as Virgin for ever.
