Then came storms of strong winds and sea started getting dried and Prithvi reappeared by the grace of Maharshi Agastya. Within five years Prithvi got all vegetations - trees, grass etc back. By the permission of Soorya, Samvaran and Maharshi Vashishth, along with three Varn people came to Prithvi again.
