A childless Brahmin couple were very sad. The Brahmin went to the forest to worship and started wishing Hanuman ji for a son. At home, his wife also used to fast on Tuesdays to get a son. On Tuesday, at the end of the fast, she used to offer food to Hanuman ji. Once on the day of the fast, the Brahmin could neither prepare food nor offer food. Then she vowed that after offering Bhog on the next Mars only, she would take food. After six days of hunger and thirst, she fainted till Tuesday. Hanuman ji was pleased to see his devotion and dedication. He appeared to her and told her that they were pleased with her and would give her a child, who would serve her. After this Hanuman ji disappeared after giving him a child. The brahmin became very pleased with this and named the boy Mangal. After some time when the Brahmin came home, seeing the boy, he asked who he was. The wife told the whole story. Knowing his wife's words deceitful, the Brahmin thought that his wife was an adulterous wife.

At night Hanuman ji told him all the stories in his dream, so the Brahmin was very happy. Then the couple started living a life of bliss by keeping a fast on Mangal.
