Lamba Wala Question

According to the Bhagavata Purana the father of "______" was a king called Uttanpad, who was married to Suruchi and Suneeti. The father had a special liking for his wife Suruchi. "______" was Suneeti’s son. Uttam was Suruchi’s son. Once "______" saw Uttam sitting on the father’s lap. Little "______" asked his father to carry him, and give him a seat on his lap too. This wish infuriated Suruchi who lashed out at the child, saying that he would acquire the right to sit on his father’s lap, only were he to perform penance and be born from her womb. The humiliated little child ran to Suneeti and fighting tears of anger, recounted what had transpired. The mother Suneeti consoled and instructed little "______" to go to the forest and perform penance.
So "______" went to the forest and started meditating. His meditations released such tremendous energy that the very earth shook and disturbed the 'Seven Sages' who were meditating nearby. The sages were amazed to see a little boy praying with such dedication and sat around him to pray. Impressed by the perseverance of "______" the Lord remarked that He was proceeding to honor him. The Lord knew that "______" had started his penance because he had wanted to sit in his father’s lap.


"______" was thus transported to the highest point of heaven, where he now sits on his 'Divine Father’s' lap as the "X" and the 'Seven Sages' who prayed along with him were placed in heaven as the "Y", surrounding "______".


Identify "______", "X" and "Y".

ANSWERS
