The Lord, again returned for His devotee and The Divine Couple enjoyed love sports away from Srimati Valli's family.

When they finally found The Lord along with Srimati Valli, the chief and followers shot arrows at Him, but they all failed to even touch the Lord and instead, the chief his sons fell lifeless. Goddess Valli was disheartened to see the lifeless bodies of her kith and kin, and requested to the Lord to bring them back to life. Lord Murugan instructed Her to revive them Herself and by Her mere touch everyone was brought back to life.
