Vaiparītya (वैपरीत्य) refers to the “contrary”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.15 (“Gaṇeśa’s battle”).—Accordingly, as Gaṇeśa said to Śiva’s attendants: “[...] I have never fought in a battle before. I am a mere boy. I am going to fight now. Still if you are put to shame, it will be shameful to Śiva and Pārvatī. But that will not happen to me. If I am put to shame, the contrary (vaiparītya) will happen to me. Pārvatī and Śiva will be put to shame but not I. [...]”.
