According to Hindu mythology, there was a demon who would not allow Indra the god of rain, growth and fertility to rule over the kingdom. The demon had earned great powers by doing penance for Lord Brahma. To teach him a lesson, Indra invited the demon to heaven. During his stay in heaven, the demon started to eat food from ghee. He made a demand for food from Indra, which he provided. The demon ate too much and got bloated. In order to release gas, he came out of Indra’s palace through his mouth.
