When Agni, the god of fire, gave Dasharath, the king of Ayodhya (Now in Uttar Pradesh, India), a bowl of sacred dessert to share among his wives so they may have divine children, an eagle snatched a part of the pudding and dropped it where Anjana was meditating, and Pavana, the god of wind delivered the drop to her outstretched hands.
