during bedtime, for my younger one.
The story begins…..
Kamsan was taking the newly married bride and groom, who happens to be his beloved sister Devaki and her husband Vasudevan in a chariot. Just then there was a divine voice, which said that Devaki’s 8th child will kill Kamsan. So, Kamsan wanted to kill his sister and her husband. But Vasudevan and Devaki pleaded with Kamsan to spare them and promised to give the babies, when they are born to Kamsan. So….
Ma, stop…..stop……I dont like this talk by Vasudevan and Devaki….What kind of parents are they ???? Instead of telling that they’ll sacrifice their own lives for the sake of their unborn babies, they agree to give their just-born babies to be killed by Kamsan ???? What kind of justice is this ???? How did the parents agree to get their babies killed ?????
No dear, all these were meant to happen, because only then Krishna will be born as the 8th child and kill Kamsan.
But, instead of allowing all the 7 babies to die in the hands of Kamsan, Krishna could’ve born as the first child na….
The God gave Kamsan, lots of opportunities to correct himself…probably the God was thinking that he might feel bad to kill a child and there by his Asura character might get changed…
Ma, when an Asura does something bad, he needs to be punished rightly and immediately.
My darling, why dont u re-write this story, on your own ???? Lemme catch some sleep…..
I’ve read this Krishna story in different versions and by various authors, but never once did I think like this. Indeed, this is the new age thinking. 🙂
