Rishi Pulasthya, was one of the sons of Brahma... on hearing about the Govardhan being a very beautiful mountain wanted his presence in the yagna he was performing at Kashi. He asked the permission of Drona, Govardhan’s father. Drona agreed, but Govardhan laid a lot conditions.
He said that Pulasthya should carry Govardhan in his palm and if due to any circumstance he was laid down by Pulasthya, he would reside in that place forever. Pulasthya agreed and carried him in his palm. While crossing the Yamuna, Govardhan decided that he would reside in that place to worship Lord Krishna. So he grew heavier and heavier. Pulasthya couldn’t bear the weight in his palm and laid the mountain on the ground where Govardhan sat like a rock without moving.
Pulasthya was outraged and he cursed Govardhan saying that he could remain there but in very short stature and that he would never again be tall and majestic. According to mythology to this day, (even when Krishna carried the Govardhan with his little finger), Govardhan remained half the size of what he was earlier.
