Once demi gods came to meet lord Shiva and Parvati, they presented a special modak to the divine couple. (The one who eats the modak will have command over scriptures, art and writing). Goddess Parvati wanted to distribute the Modak among her sons, lord Ganesha and lord Karthik. But the brothers were not willing to share it. So Goddess Parvati said the one who encircles the world three times first, will get the modak. Karthik immediately mounted on his vehicle, peacock following his mother’s instruction. Lord Ganesha just went around his parents three times as he considered his divine parents; represent the entire world to him. His sincerity and wisdom won him the special modak. Since then modak is a favorite sweet of lord Ganesha. Lord Ganesha is also called ‘Modakpriya’, which means one who loves modaks. Worship of lord Ganesha is incomplete without modaks. Ajit Sweets is first one to make more than 50 varieties of Modak in various sizes made of pure milk (without essences or color )or Dryfruits and sugar free variants.
