Description

Jarasandha was the emperor of North India at the time when the Pandavas were ruling at Indraprastha. Most of the kings of North India had acknowledged his suzerainty out of fear. Many of those who did not, had been imprisoned by him. To establish the supremacy of the Pandavas it was necessary to subdue Jarasandha.

Though Jarasandha was considered invincible, he had a vital flaw known only to Krishna. How he brings about the fall of the mighty and evil emperor is narrated in the first Chitra Katha.
In the second Chitra Katha is told the story of Narakasura whose deeds were so dark that his name has come down as a symbol of darkness. Many who celebrate the festival of lights-Deepavali-believe that they are commemorating the death of Naraka and the consequent emancipation of all good spirits.

Paundraka Vaasudeva had his name common with that of Krishna Vaasudeva. His sycophants led him to believe that he was as strong and powerful as Krishna. How he fell into disgrace and disaster is told in the third story.

All three stories in this special issue are based on the Bhagawat Purana.
