5. Krishn Helped Others
1. Pootanaa -
Kans thought and thought. He came to conclusion that the child could not be
taken away very far in just one night, so he called Pootanaa she-demon and
asked her to look for newborn children in nearby villages and kill all of
them. Pootanaa killed all the newborn children in nearby villages but when
she came to kill Krishn and tried to kill Him by breastfeeding Him poisonous
milk, He bit her so hard that she died.
2. Shakat -
Kans was very surprised to know that how Pootanaa, who herself was very
powerful, died by an infant. But the child was still an infant, so he sent
Shakat named Raakshas to kill that one remaining child. He assumed the form
of carriage (like bullock cart without bullocks) and stood in the courtyard
of Nand Jee. Yashodaa put Krishn to sleep under it. Krishn felled it by
throwing His legs several times and thus he was also killed. Everybody was
very surprised to see that how such a little child did that.
3. Trinaavart -
After Shakat was killed Kans sent Trinaavart. He came like a storm in the
village, but Krishn flew him
5. Bakaasur -
Kans then sent Bakaasur who was in the form a Bak (crane). He stood opening
his large mouth. Krishn's playmates started playing with it. Krishn knew
what was it, so He entered his long beak and increased His size so that
6. Aghaasur -
7. Pralambaasur -
Kans then sent Pralambaasur to kill Krishn. He came and joined Krishn's
playmates group. They started playing a game in which the defeated boy had
to carry the winner boy on his back to a certain point. In this game
Pralambaasur lost and Balaraam won so Pralambaasur carried him on his back.
As he carried him, he started flying and took him high in the sky. First
Balaraam did not understand it, when he came to know about him, he killed
him in the sky itself.
8. Daavaanal -
9. Vidyaadhar Python -
Kans then sent Visyaadhar python to swallow Krishn. He set himself a bit far
from the village and when Krishn and His playmates came to play, he opened
his mouth so big that they took it as a cave and started entering it.
Krishna knew that it was not a cave, He tried to stop them but they entered
with their childlike nature. rishn decided to enter it in the last. And when
He entered it last, the python shut his mouth and tried to swallow them, but
Krishn again increased His size and ripped his stomach. All came out from
its stomach. They were very surprised to see that they were in a snake's mouth.
A news reached to Kans that a
child had lifted Govardhan Parvat for 7 days and 7 nights continuously on his left
pinki. Hearing this he got sure that he was the same child who was born to kill him.
So he made a plan to kill him through his musclemen in a competition. He sent Akroor
Jee to bring both of his nephews to Mathuraa on his invitation for Dhanush Yagya. He
had a very old Shiv bow. Some Pandit had told him that if he heard the sound of its
breaking, he should take it as the hint of his death. When Akroor Jee brought them
both to Mathuraa, Krishn cured a Kubjaa and broke the
bow even before meeting Kans. So as he heard the sound, it confirmed him that his death

Kans got an elephant ready to welcome his nephews at the gate of the
Rangbhoomi. As Krishn and Balaraam entered the rangbhoomi with Akroor Jee
the elephant attacked Krishn. After a short fight, He killed him.
16. Chaanoor and Mushtik
These were the two very mighty musclemen with whom Krishn and Balaraam had
to wrestle. When Krishn and Balaraam had come inside, Kans welcomed them and
asked them to wrestle with his people. They wrestled with them and killed
After killing Chaanoor and Mushtik in the Rangbhoomi, Krishn killed Kans.
