The king's eldest son Luyuk was immersed in misdeeds and sins. He was expelled from the country when his sins became excessive, after which he had to live in a forest where he had to satisfy himself by consuming fruits and leaves.
After this there is a two way perception.
According to the first perception- the king's son was hungry in the forest for many days so he went in search of food where he met a monk who fed him. Impressed by this, he redeemed his sins and became a disciple of the monk after which he had a complete change in his character.
According to the second perception, during the Pausha month of Krishna Paksha Luyuk was unable to sleep because of the cold and he was also hungry for a long time. After going through so many sufferings he began to apologize for his sins to God. He unintentionally kept fast for the whole night as he was starving and did not had any trick or greed in his mind.
