Episode # 224 – Bhagawan Bala-Krishna & Balarama kill Mushtika and Chaanura – Leaves Kamsa to fend for himself!!!

In the previous episode, we had witnessed Bhagawan Bala-Krishna and Balarama making a grand entry into Kamsa’s palace, by neutralising elephant Kuvalayapeetham. Kamsa was so confident that this elephant would somehow kill Bhagawan Bala-Krishna with all its might and power. But, Kamsa’s arithmetic miserably failed and back-fired at him very badly. Bhagawan Bala-Krishna neutralized such a huge elephant within just minutes, and thus sent shockwaves to Kamsa and co. Thus, the moment Bhagawan Bala-Krishna and Balarama entered into the palace, Kamsa was shell-shocked! He was beyond words! Kamsa was clearly outplayed here – By two small children, not even half of Kamsa’s age! Does Kamsa realize atleast now, the might of his enemy? Let us continue witnessing the further events that took place in today’s episode. 

As Bhagawan Bala-Krishna enters Kamsa’s palace, He pays His respects to the king and walks further inside. As witnessed earlier, Kamsa had other plans ready in place. He decides to further wait and watch if these children are able to tackle the “Mallyudha” experts (Kickboxing). To witness this fight, Kamsa had invited the entire population of Mathura city. For a moment, Bhagawan Bala-Krishna and Balarama looked around and didn’t understand what was going on. It should be remembered that they were called to Mathura on the pretext of attending a “Dhanur Yaga”, but there wasn’t any “Dhanus” (Bow) or anything there! It was a jam-packed stadium-like setup wherein people were flocking to see what was going to happen! It is at this time that Bhagawan Bala-Krishna and Balarama were confronted by the two “Malyudha” experts – Mushtika and Chaanura. Kamsa was watching all this by sitting on his high throne, surrounded by all his ministers and other people. On one hand, Kamsa was feeling confident that Mushtika and Chaanura would be able to overcome Bhagawan Bala-Krishna successfully. However, on the other hand, a fear was starting to grip Kamsa thus, “Oh! What if this boy overcomes these two people? He has managed to kill all of my Raakshasa army and also the Kuvalayaapeetham! It is only these two people who are left in my kitty! Now what if these two are also neutralized? Will a situation come wherein I’ve to personally engage in a fight with my enemy?” 

Thinking thus, Kamsa was sitting thoughtfully on his throne and overseeing what was happening! Meanwhile, the people who had assembled there also were clueless as to what was happening! Little did they expect that they’re going to witness a fight between a child and a “Mallyudha” expert! Upon seeing this, the people started raising voices thus, “Oh! Isn’t this gross injustice to a ten-year-old child? How would he be able to take on these people?” We have a famous story in English too, isn’t it? The story of a fight between David and Golliath! It was a similar situation here too – Bhagawan Bala-Krishna was too small a child (seemingly by appearance) to take on two giants! However, it was the king’s order, and nobody had a say in it. Sadly enough, it was not a democracy in those days, as compared to what we have today! 🙂 

Thus, Bhagawan Bala-Krishna and Balarama had a huge examination in front of them – It was a test of strength! Kamsa orders the fight to begin, and Mushtika and Chaanura come charging in! They direct all their strength together to inflict a huge blow on both the children! However, this was not going to deter Bhagawan Bala-Krishna and Balarama! Thus, a huge fight erupted between the four of them. The people who were watching the fight, along with Kamsa, were astounded with the way the fight was progressing. They never expected a neck-to-neck fight in this way! The fight goes on for a few minutes and at one stage, Balarama started emerging too powerful in front of Mushtika. Even though Mushtika was trying to inflict heavy blows, Balarama somehow was able to escape from all of it, only to inflict equally heavy blows on Mushtika. This was the same case with Chaanura and Bhagawan Bala-Krishna too! Minute by minute, Kamsa’s anxiety was growing like never before! 

As moments passed by, both Mushtika and Chaanura weren’t able to live up to the immense strength of Bhagawan Bala-Krishna and Balarama! They were too hot to handle! Finally, the two “Mallyuddha” experts had to surrender and with this, with one last heavy blow, the two experts were blown away to death! Mushtika and Chaanura were history! As this happened, Kamsa automatically stood up from his throne with the highest level of fear and anxiety! On one hand, the entire Mathura city was cheering Bhagaawn Bala-Krishna’s and Balarama’s victory over the two Mallyudha experts! On the other hand, Kamsa was slowly seeming to lose his popularity due to his “goondaism” approach towards the two children! 

Now what is going to happen next? Is Kamsa ready to fight Bhagawan Bala-Krishna head to head? Of course, he doesn’t have any other option left, but to do so! An interesting accord awaits us tomorrow! Stay tuned! 🙂
