One morning Lord Sani visited Lord Shiva and told him that it is Lord Shiva's turn to go through the 7 AND HALF YEARS of SANI's GAZE. Being his guru-ji, Lord Shiva felt he should not be subjected to the full period of the 7 and half years of Sani's gaze. Instead, he bargained with Lord Sani and finally the both came to an agreement that Lord Shiva should only undergo 3 hours and 45 minutes of Sani's gaze. A very good bargain indeed.
Lord Shiva thought Lord Sani would not be able to accomplish anything within the short period of 3 hours and 45 minutes. "What can Sani do in such a short period of time?" he smiled to himself. To deny Sani's role, Lord Shiva decided to bath in the River Ganges by thinking that 3 hours and 45 minutes will just pass if he spend that time in the river. And then, he would be freed from Sani's gaze.
As Lord Shiva was walking happily to the River Ganges to take his long bath, suddenly a WATER-MELON SELLER who had been following Lord Shiva appeared in front of him and gave him two juicy water-melons. And the watter-melon seller happens to be Lord Sani, who has actually took the form of that water-melon seller. When the water-melon seller a.k.a. Lord Sani's shadows fell upon Lord Shiva, his mind changed.
What happened then? Lord Shiva put both the melons in the bag and proceeded to the river.
In the meantime, there was another development taking place. On the previous day, the King's two princes who went for hunting were missing. The King was worried for the safety of both the princes and he had sent his soldiers out to search for the princes. It was at this point in time, they stumbled upon Lord Shiva carrying his bag heading to the river. They asked, "What is in the bag?". Lord Shiva quipped, "Oh..two water-melons". By this time, there were blood dripping out from the bag. Shockingly, when told to open the bag, they found the two HEADS of the King's princes!
By the gaze of Lord Sani, the water-melons have changed into the heads of the princes....wOw!
The soldiers, then, took Lord Shiva to the King, who was so furious that he ordered an instant hanging. By this time, Lord Shiva already knew "this play" must have been BRILLIANTLY designed by Lord Sani. He pleaded with the soldiers to wait for a few minutes knowing very well that Sani's gaze would be over by then.
As soon as Sani's gaze was over, the King's two princes entered the palace. Seeing this, the order to hang was immediately cancelled. The King felt very bad and asked for forgiveness from Lord Shiva for putting him in such an ordeal.
After all these, Lord Sani again reached to Lord Shiva and asked him, "What was the experience of my gaze, guru-ji?"
The ever-forgiving Lord Shiva replied, "YOU ARE GREAT."
