According to a legend, a Brahmin named Dhaneshwar resided in Kantika Nagar. He lived his life on subsistence donations. The Brahmin and his wife had no children. One day his wife went to ask for alms in the city, but everyone refused to give alms, calling her infertile. Then someone asked her to worship mother Kali for 16 days, according to her, the Brahmin couple did the same. Pleased with his worship, mother Kali appeared after 16 days. Mother Kali gave the boon to the Brahmin’s wife to get pregnant and said that according to your strength, you should light a lamp every full moon. In this way, increasing the lamp till every full moon day until at least 32 lamps are reached.
The Brahmin broke the raw fruit of mango from the tree for worship. His wife worshiped and as a result she became pregnant. On every full moon she continued to light the lamp as told by mother Kali. By the grace of mother Kali, a son was born to his house, named Devdas. When Devdas grew up, he was sent to Kashi to study with his maternal uncle. An accident happened with both of them in Kashi due to which Deodas got married by deception. Devdas said that he is young but still he was forcibly married. After some time Kaal came to take his life but the Brahmin couple kept a full moon fast, so Kaal could not spoil anything. Since then, it is said that by fasting on the full moon day, one gets relief from distress and all wishes are fulfilled.
