Kuber's ego


 This is a mythological story. Kuber was the richest one in the three worlds. One day they thought that we have so much wealth, but few people know about it. So he thought of organizing a grand banquet to showcase his wealth. All the deities of the three worlds were invited in it.


  Lord Shiva was his presiding deity, so he reached Kailash to seek his blessings and said, Lord! Today I am the richest of the three worlds, all this is the result of your grace. I am going to organize a banquet at my residence, please come along with your family to the banquet.


  Lord Shiva removed the ego of Kubera's mind, said, Vatsa! I don't go out anywhere. Kuber started babbling, Lord! Without you my entire event will go waste. Then Lord Shiva said, there is one way. I will ask my younger son Ganapati to go to your banquet. Kuber returned satisfied. At the appointed time, Kuber organized a grand feast.


  Lords of the three worlds had arrived. Finally Ganapati came and said as soon as he came, I am very hungry. Where is the food. Kuber took them to a room which was decorated with food. Food was served in a gold plate. Within a moment all the food served was over. The food was served for the second time, they ate that too. Food was served again and again and within a moment Ganesha would devour it.


  Within a short time, the food prepared for thousands of people was over, but Ganpati's stomach was not filled. They reached the kitchen and ate all the raw material kept there, even then the hunger did not go away. When everything was over, Ganapati said to Kubera, why did you invite me when you didn't have anything to feed me? Kuber's ego was shattered."
