As a result, Lalit made many mistakes while performing and didn't perform well. On this, the people present in the court, informed the king, the reason behind the faulty performance. The king got angry and lost his temper. He cursed Lalit which resulted in Lalit's transformation into a demon. The king thought that Lalitha won't ever accept a demon as her husband. But her love for her husband was eternal and she told the king that she can never leave him. To help Lait in coming back to his normal way, the couple began their hunt to find a solution. Once while on their way, they met sage Sringi and told him everything that happened with them. After carefully listening to the couple, Sringi advised them to observe Kamada Ekadashi Vrat.
