One day, while the sage was praying in the river, an eagle flying above him dropped a mouse that it had caught as prey.
When the sage opened his eyes, he found the little mouse in his hands. He took the mouse home and showed it to his wife. Since the sage and his wife did not have any children, they decided to keep the mouse as a child. The sage, with his extraordinary powers, changed the little she-mouse into a pretty girl child. The sage and his wife brought up the girl like their own daughter. When the girl grew up into a beautiful young lady, at the age of sixteen, the sage decided that it was time to get her married. He thought that the Sun God would be a suitable match for his daughter.
So, the sage prayed to the Sun God and asked him to marry his daughter. He is so bright and his heat is so intense that I will be reduced to ashes. He asked the Sun God to suggest another groom for his. So, the sage prayed to the Lord of the Clouds and asked him to marry the girl. But the girl rejected the Lord of the Clouds saying that she did not want to marry someone as dark as him and also that she was scared of the thunder that he produced.
Again, the sage was upset and asked the Lord of the Clouds to suggest a groom for his daughter. The sage then prayed to the Lord of the Wind to appear and asked him to marry his daughter. So, the sage went to the Lord of the Mountain and requested him to get married to his daughter. But, the daughter did not want to accept him as her groom. He could not think of any more suitable grooms for his daughter. He requested the Lord of the Mountain to suggest a groom. You began your life as a mouse and you were destined to marry a mouse.
She was married to a nice, suitable mouse and they lived happily ever after. He asked the Sun God to suggest another groom for his daughter.
