10-Ganesh Jee and Chandramaa (Moon)
Once Paarvatee Jee prepared 21 types of delicious food on one of Ganesh Jee's birthdays. Ganesh Jee ate that food to the content of his heart and came out to take a round of the Universe riding on his mouse that he came to Chandra Lok - Moon's kingdom. Moon was very proud of his beauty. So seeing the big bellied Ganesh riding on a little mouse, Moon laughed at him.
This was a great insult to Ganesh Jee, so he was very angry with Moon. He gave a Shaap to him - "You are very proud of your beauty. I am being worshipped first all over the world but because of your beauty you laughed at me. This is my Shaap to you that whoever will see you on the 4th day of the Krishn Paksh of Bhaadrapad month, on my birthday, he will suffer because of unjust accusations."
The Shaap shattered the pride of the Moon and he asked for his forgiveness and prayed to take back his Shaap. Ganesh Jee got calmed down and said - "My purpose was only to shatter your pride. My purpose is served. Although my Shaap cannot go in vain, but I assure you that those people will regain their good name after seeing you on the 2nd day of the Shukla Paksh, or by listening to the story of Syaamantak Mani (gem)." The Moon got satisfied.
