Title: ‘Herambha’ – a ninda-stuti verse in Sanskrit.
Ninda-stuti essentially translates to praising the Divine through scolding or teasing.
In this ninda-stuti verse, little Ganesha and Muruga complain about each other to their mother, Devi Parvati. Ganesha says that his brother, Muruga pulled his ears and tried to measure his trunk. While Muruga refutes that Ganesha counted his eyes. How Parvati deals with her quarelling children and makes peace between them form the theme of this workshop.
