One day, all the cowherds took their cattles to a large pond to let them drink water. There, they saw a huge creature sitting like a hillock on the river bank. They were frightened by its appearance. The creature was in fact a demon named Bakasur who had arrived there in the guise of a storke after being instructed by Kansa, Kirshna’ s Uncle who hated Krishna for his super natural power/ divinity. This was to kill Lord Krishna. As soon as the cowherds drew near him, the storke hastily picked up Lord Krishna with his beak. Lord Krishna held his beak with both his hands and tore the demon’s mouth apart. And as soon as the demon died, a ripple of joy surged among the cowherds.
