Shiva and Parvati

Shiva and Parvati were once playing dice. In the midst of the game Siva got up all of the sudden and went out. He came after a short while and then Parvati asked him why he had left the game so abruptly. Shiva replied, “A devotee of mine was in danger and he remembered me”. “Why,” enquired Parvati, “have you come back so soon?” Shiva replied, “I went and found that he had decided to deal with the matter himself without my help!”
