In 1947, Vinayak Rao tells his 14-year-old son Pandurang about the Goddess of Prosperity. Vinayak explains that the goddess gave birth to 160 million gods, but Hastar was her first and most beloved offspring. However, Hastar was greedy and gluttonous, and wanted all of the goddess’ gold and food for himself. The other gods attacked Hastar, but the goddess saved him on the condition that he could never be worshipped and would be forgotten by history. Vinayak goes on to explain that their people built a shrine that woke up Hastar. Although the village of Tumbbad became plagued with rain, Vinayak’s family was able to benefit from Hastar’s curse provided they were willing to risk venturing into the goddess’ womb in the earth where Hastar dwells.
