Summary: This romantic tale with a climactic twist can be found in Mahabharatha's Aadi parva and in Matsyapuranam. The asuras belligerence against the Devas always resulted in favour of them thanks to the Maha Mrithasanjeevani mantra their guru Sukracharya learnt from Lord Shiva. Brihaspathi, the guru of Devas sends his son Kacha to learn the secret of immortality the Sanjeevani mantra from Sukracharya. Following the Guru dharma, Sukra accepts him as his disciple. Sukracharya's daughter Devayani falls in love with the handsome Kacha. Vrishaparva, the asura king wished his brother-in-law Madanasura marry her. But Devayani rejects him with disdain. Kacha was killed and buried by asuras. Devayani pleads with her father to bring him back to life which he does. Vrishaparva hits upon a more diabolical plot, kills Kacha, burns him and mixes his ash in an alcoholic drink and serves it to his guru. The unsuspecting Sukra drinks it. When he realises the truth, he had one option left to save Kacha. To teach him the mrithasanjeevani so that after he pierces his stomach and come out alive, Kacha can chant the mantra and bring him back to life. Devayani is happy to see Kacha. But Kacha refuses to marry her, the reason he cites is since he had come out of her father's stomach, he is like a son to Sukra. Aggrieved by his argument she curses him that the mantra will become ineffective when he uses it. Kacha finds solace as he can teach it to other devas. Mission fulfilled he returns to Paradise.
