She named this boy Ganesha.Ganesha One day when Parvati went to take a bath she instructed Ganesha to guard the entrance of the palace and not let anybody. Thus saying she handed over a long thick stick to Ganesha and went away.

After sometime Lord Shiva came and he wanted to enter but Ganesha wouldnot allow him to enter without his mother`s permission Shiva told him that he was Parvatis husband but still Ganesha wouldnot let him go in. In a fit of rage Shiva cut off his head and he died.
