One day the god Shiva and his wife Parvati were wandering in the forest. They were very thirsty so stopped under the Tad (wine tree). They saw under the tree was a well and decided to drink the water but it was coconut wine instead and they became very intoxicated. Deep in the forest different wine trees are there so it is not good for people walking there as they will drink that wine. Shiva the god decided to block the wells at the trees base. If the people want to drink the wine they must climb to the top of the tree to get the juice from the Tad tree. Today the Warli still make wine in this way from the Tad tree.
