Arrival of Shree Govardhan in Vraj

Once, sage pulatsya, while doing the yatra, reached at Shalmali Dweepa. He asked Drona, that as you are the head among all mountains, I demand your able son Shree Govardhan. In India, there is a place named Kashi, where Vishvanath bhagwan is residing blissfully. There, shree gangaji is also flowing but there is not mountain range. I want to take your son there for Shree Vishvanath.
Shree Drona expressed his willingness to take his son. Shree Govardhan told to Shree Pulatsya, that I am very wide and lengthy. How will you carry me?.
Sage pulatsya, asked govardhan to sit on his right hands wrist. He told that he will carry him to Kashi with the help of his ascetic powers.
But Shree Govardhan put up one small request that if he will place him anywhere in between the journey then he will remain forever at that place only. Pulatsya gave the promise to Shree Govardhan. Pulatsya started the journey with Shree Gavardhan in his wrist of right hand. During the journey, Shree Vrajmandal came. Shree Govardhan remembered the order of Shree Krishna and determined to remain in this place in the mind. He deliberately, increased the weight of himself. Due to this, pulatsya sage experience too much weight and he landed on Vraj to take rest. When pulatsya started again lifting Shree Govardhan, he could not lifted. He made pulatsya to remember the promise that he gave to him. Sage Pulatsya got angry on Shree Govardhan and cursed him that you will become shorter day by day.
