King Goggara Gundaiah and Queen Potammanni are expecting a child. During the eleventh month of her pregnancy, Potammanni eats too many tripes and then plays tag on the green. That afternoon, in a green meadow, Gargantappa is born from his mother’s left ear. Gargantappa is a prodigy and, with his first breath, he begins to clamor for a drink. At first, Gargantappa’s education is in the hands of a master of the old school, Pundit Gotumande. When Goggara Gundaiah observes that his son is making no progress, however, he sends him to the city Konaparadu to study humanitics with Acharya Indriya Shuddhi. Aside from some mishaps, as when he takes the bells from the Temple tower to tie around his horse’s neck, Gargantappa does much better with his studies in Konaparadu. Back home, a dispute arises. The Butter Sellers of neigboring province called Pedagunda Magane refuse to sell Butter to the shepherds of Bobbili pura province that of Goggara Gundaiah . In the quarrel, a shepherd fells a Butter Seller, and King Pekkara Chole of Pedagonda invades the country. Goggara Gundaiah tries to appease Pekkarachole, but to no avail, for no one dares oppose Pekkara Chola except Yati Pingala of Vidaya peeta Mutt. Finally, Goggara Gundaiah asks Gargantappa to come to his aid. Gargantappa fights valiantly. Cannonballs seem to him as grape seeds, and when he combs his hair, cannonballs drop out. After he conquers the army of Pedagunda, he generously sets all the prisoners free. All of his helpers are rewarded well, and for Yati Pingala Gargantappa builds the famous hermitage at Muktakoota hillslope where men and women are together, all can leave when they wish, and marriage and the accumulation of wealth are encouraged. When he is more than four hundred years old, Gargantappa has a son, Parganta. A remarkable baby, Parganta is hairy as a bear at birth and of such great size that he costs the life of his mother. Gargantappa is sorely vexed, between weeping for his wife and rejoicing for his son. Parganta requires the services of 4,600 cows to nurse him. Once he gets an arm out of his swaddling clothes and, grasping the cow nursing him, eats the cow. Afterward, Parganta’s arms are bound with anchor ropes. One day, the women forget to clean his face after nursing, and a bear comes and licks the drops of milk from the baby’s face. By a great effort, Parganta breaks the ropes and eats the bear. Later parganta was also sent to different universities for his higher studies. Later he returns to his homeland with a bomber in his hand to save his countrymen.
