How Kacha Got The Secret Summary

‘How Kacha Got the Secret’ is extracted from the book, ‘A mythological Mosaic, A Pantheon of tales from Indian scriptures’ by Sri Thangam Krishnan.

The original source of the short story is the epic Mahabaratha is which the story of sage Kacha is mentioned. The story starts with the war between the gods and demons. This war had started long before the churning of the ‘ocean of milk’ which gave the Gods ‘ Amritha’, the elixir of immortality.

In spite of the casualities on both sides it was surprising that the number of asuras remained the same while that of Gods dwindled at an alarming rate.
Brihaspathi was the great guru of the Gods. He had a very handsome son, Kacha. One day Kacha asked his father how the number of demons remained the same in spite of hundreds of them

perishing in the war. Brihaspati replied that the great guru of the demons, Shukracharya knew the Sanjeevini Mantra with which he was able to revive the dead demons back to life. Hence their number never decreased.

Kacha was bewildered. He was certain that even his father would know the Sanjeevini Mantra and wondered why he didn’t use it to revive the Gods back to life. Kacha asked his father to also use the Mantra to bring back the dead Gods back to life. But Brihaspathi told him that he was helpless because he did not know the Sanjeevini Mantra. Kacha felt sad and determined to learn the Sanjeevini Mantra.

Meanwhile the Gods were getting demoralized, but they continued to fight the demons valiantly because it had become a question of survival. Kacha volunteered to go to Sukhracharya to learn the sanjeevini mantra and after obtaining the knowledge return back to Paradise.

The Gods protested unanimously. They felt that Kacka was too young and being the only son of their guru and they did not want to risk his life by sending him to Sukhracharya.

But Kacha become more determined. He posed a difficult question to the Gods, ‘Tell me how does one win a game?’ None of gods knew the answer. So Kacha himself answered that one can win a game by being in the game even if one wins or loses the game. The Gods seemed concerned, Sukhracharya had a very beautiful daughter and were afraid that Kacha would fall in love with her and forget his duty to learn the mantra.

But Kacha reassured them .He vowed to remain unmarried until his mission is fulfilled. So Kacha went to Shukhracharya who graciously accepted him as his pupil. Yet even after decades of teaching his pupil, Sukhracharya did not teach him the Sanjeevini mantra.

Kacha did not lose his patience but obediently served his guru. His daughter Devyani was a heavenly beauty and the only child of her father, Sukhracharya. Her father loved her ardently and took great pains to keep his daughter happy.

Kacha and Devyani became good friends Kacha told her many tales of the war between the Gods and demons and also regaled her with jokes. Devyani seemed to be happy being with him. They became very close to each other. Never- the- less, Kacha did not forget his vow, even when she proffessed her love for him.

He firmly told her that it was impossible for him to change his mind as he had vowed to find a solution for a very important cause and he would rather not change his mind. One day some demons saw Kacha and Devyani together. They knew Kacha was the son of Brihaspati. They became angry and vowed to kill him. They could not confront their guru so they decided to lay in wait for him when he is alone and then kill him.

The next day Kacha had taken the cattle to a nearby hill to graze. The demons saw an opportunity to kill Him. They stealthily came behind him and pushed him down the side of the hill. Kacha fell down the hill and was killed.

They sought to kill him once again, The next day they kidnapped Kacha and drowned him in the sea. Devyani once again begged her father to bring back Kacka. When Kacha went back to the ashram, he once again narrated how he was drowned is the sea by the demons.

Devyani was extremely happy to sea Kacha alive. Kacha grew concerned and told Devyani that he suspected that the next time the demons killed him they would bum his body to ashes and disperse it in air and water so that her father could never bring him back to life. Meanwhile Kacha pondered deeply about his vow. He had promised the Gods that he would learn to chant the Sanjeevini Mantra and could not disappoint them.

Being a man of great wisdom an idea shuck him. He intentionally walked deep into the forest prepared to die once again. The asuras had followed him to kill him once again.But Kacha reminded them that Sukhracharya would revive him. The demons looked helpless and asked him for suggestions. Kacha told them that he himself was fed up of dying everyday only to be brought back to life once again. He told them that he would be pleased to die forever he assured them that if they were ready to listen to him he would give them a good idea to get rid of him forever.

The demons agreed happily. Kacha asked them to bum him and later ensure to somehow put his ashes inside gum Sukhracharya’s body. He will not try to revive him once again because if Kacha has to come out alive from the guru’s body the gum would have die. The demons were delighted at die thought of getting rid of Kacha forever. They happily killed him and burnt his body and mixed the ashes in some wine and offered the wine to Sukhracharya, Thus Kacha found his way into the gum’s body.

He quickly chanted the Sanjeevini Manthra but Kacha did not come back even after he repeated the Manthra thrice. Sukhracharya wondered aloud where Kacha might be. Meanwhile Kacha had been revived and aware that he was inside the gum’s body and narrated how he found his way inside the gum’s body.
Shukra was angry. The demons knew he was a vegetarian, yet they had fed him the ashes of Kacha he vowed to give up drinking wine.

Shukra asked his loving daughter to choose between him and Kacha because if she wanted Kacha to come alive he certainly would have to die. Devyani wanted hoth to live, so it was invariable for Shukracharya to teach the Sanjeevuni Manthra to Kacha, that after Kacha came out of his body, He could revive Shukracharya.
