 On hearing this word from the mouth of Lord Shiva, Kartikeya went out to circumambulate the earth by sitting on his vehicle peacock

but Ganesha got into the thought that if he would climb the mouse and circumambulate the whole earth, it would take him a lot of time.

Then he got a solution. Ganesh ji got up from his place and sat back after circumambulating his parents seven times. On returning after circumambulating, Kartikeya started calling himself the winner
