According to Kashi Khand, Chapter 70, near Mahalakshmi Devi a Devi by name of Hayakanti is present with a sickle in her hand.
Hayakanti Devi destroys the obstacles coming in the way of devotees just as the plants and trees are felled with a sickle. A person who worships Hayakanti Devi with all sincerity will see all the obstacles in his smooth life disappear. The part “Kant” in Hayakanti is pronounced as “Kant” in Neelkant.
