Episode # 152 – Poothana’s death leaves Kamsa shell-shocked!!!

In the previous episode, we had witnessed how Bhagawan Bala-Krishna neutralized Raakshasi Poothana and how Mother Yashoda was shell-shocked to see her little baby being attacked by such a huge Raakshasi. In fact, Gokula village hadn’t seen such a huge form of a Raakshasi ever in their history. The entire village was shell-shocked, however Bhagawan Bala-Krishna was playing all over her dead body. Upon seeing this, Yashoda rushed towards the baby, took Him in her arms and tried to calm Him down. She was thinking that Bhagawan Bala-Krishna was also equally shocked and should be calmed down immediately. However, it was on the contrary – Bhagawan Bala-Krishna, who is the savior of the entire world isn’t going to back down to just this one Raakshasi. Killing such Raakshasis was such a cake-walk for Him. We’ve already seen in due course that Bhagawan Krishna is never going to voluntarily kill anyone. All those Raakshasas who voluntarily come inside Gokula are going to search their own ghastly ends by themselves. Poothana was the first of all of them! 

As Yashoda was doing thus, Bhagawan Bala-Krishna “purposefully” cried more profusely, as He was hungry for more milk. Hence, Yashoda tried various tricks of calming Him down, which we’ve seen yesterday. After a while, the baby calmed down and again started to smile beautifully. The entire Gokula village came back to life and was admiring the beautiful smile of Bhagawan Bala-Krishna. Yashoda too was relieved. As this was happening in Gokula, Kamsa was anxiously waiting for the “good news” that Poothana would have killed the baby successfully. However, on the contrary of Kamsa’s expectations, Poothana did not arrive back from Gokula. This made Kamsa even more anxious, and it is at this time, Kamsa gets the news that Poothana has been killed! Upon hearing this news, Kamsa couldn’t believe his ears initially! How could a giant Raakshasi called “Poothana ” be killed so easily afterall by a newborn baby? Poothana had been a terror all these years, and how can she be neutralized within minutes  like this? 

Kamsa didn’t know what to think of for a moment, and after a while, he too calms himself down and tries to get back to his senses. What is his plan going to be? Let’s wait till the next episode. Stay tuned! 🙂
