Once Sri Venkateswara was hit by a shepherd and lost some portion of hair. By seeing this a Gandharva princess Neela Devi cut some portion of her hair and planted it on the scalp of Venkateswara Swamy. Lord Balaji was pleased with her devotion and promised her that all his devotees whoever will come to the abode of Lord Venkateswara Swamy should give their hair to him on their own desire and that total hair offered to Lord Balaji should belong to her for her devotion.
