goes back and describes the issue to Nandi, and they decide to split
the party and send some ganas & devas to Murugan's party, and leave
some w/ Ganapati.
That works out well for an
extent - half the ganas & devas join Himavan & Menavati and turn
up @ Murugan's party. Murugan asks Minakshi, Devasena & Asoka
Sundari to cater to all of them. Since he doesn't like the high
calorie Masala Dosa, Crisp Vadas, Rava Roast, Onion Sambhar, Coconut
Chutney, he orders that it be served to everyone else in smaller
quantities, so that it won't fatten them - at least not much anyway.
the issue arises on whose party would Mahadev, Parvati & Nandi
themselves attend. Indra is not so much of a problem - neither Murugan
nor Vinayak can stand him. However, how do they make them appear @ both
Nandi then has a
bright idea that everyone in Ganapati's party themselves go & crash
Murugan's party. Murugan is told of this plan by Devasena, and smiles.
He tells all 3 of them, 'Nandi may think that he's brilliant, but
we'll see how much they like
Masala Dosa, Crisp Vadas, Rava Roast, Onion Sambhar, Coconut Chutney after having laddos
is right. The party crashers hate having to have all that after having
laddoos. Mahadev & Parvati arrive, and are welcomed and invited to
have all that as well. Mahadev then starts doing the disappearing act
of all the food, as if to demonstrate the supremacy of Annapurna. But
Kartikeya puts the laddoos, and since they were made by Menavati, they
too disappear. The ganas & devas want dessert, and Asoka Sundari
offers them all Panchamritam, but Mahadev finishes it, and Asoka is
upset and starts bawling. Mahadev & Parvati are forced to sit w/
her for another story telling session - this time of Parashurama. Happy
to get them out of the way, Murugan has Minakshi & Devasena prepare
another round of Panchamritam, and serves them to all the ganas &
devas, and piques Ganesh once again
Party ends in a stalemate & Nandi is relieved that it didn't become a bigger fiasco as a result of this sibling rivalry.
I don't very fond of sweets and south indian cuisine but I can see what were the reactions of all the Party crashers. And it is to see Nandi using his own brain instead of his Mata.
