Once Chitragupt went angrily to Brahmaji and said, “You really need to stop this whole ‘karva chauth’ thing. All these women want the same husband for seven lives. It is getting very difficult to keep track!”
Overhearing his predicament, Narad Muni suggested, “Let’s introduce an amendment. Any woman who wishes for the same husband for all seven lives, will also get the same mother-in-law for seven lives!”
Needless to say, that year Chitragupt’s workload decreased drastically!
