News of the death of the terrible Bakasur spread far and wide. Kamsa was filled with anger on hearing that Bakasur had also been slain by Krishna. How can that little boy destroy every asura I sent ? I cannot believe this. Is there no asura left on earth who can destroy this child? Narayana, Narayana, Narayana, Narayana Kamsa, I know everything about how you tried to kill Krishna and Balram and what the result was. Your death is really approaching near. You must do something to kill Krishna. Krishna is strong enough and he’s thirsting for revenge against you along with his brother Balram. Yes, and I plotted a lot of plans to destroy him all in vain. Hmm Instead of sending each Demon to kill him, why don’t you arrange some event and invite him to your place and finish him? Ah, Narada, this is the most wonderful idea. I will arrange it immediately. Narayana, Narayana (snigger) My work here is done Saying so, sage Narada went with a huge smile on his face. After sage Narada’s departure, Kamsa planned to hold a Dhanur Yagna and invite the brothers for the festivities, Where he planned to kill the two brothers with professional wrestlers. Kamsa called Mushtik and Chanur. They were the best wrestlers in his kingdom and said to them. Mushtik and Chanur, I’m sure you know that it has been prophesised that, Krishna will be the one who’d kill me. I’ve decided to invite him on the occasion of Dhanur Yagna and kill him along with his brother Balram. As you wish your majesty. Oh, mahout, you must station our mighty elephant Kuvalayapid at the gate of the arena and provoke the elephant to crush them as they enter the gate. Yes your majesty. My dear friend, please go to Vrindavan and invite my nephews, Krishna and Balram on my behalf, and bring them back with you. I will get them trampled under the mighty feet of Kuvalayapid, as soon as they arrive here. If they still remain alive, my huge wrestlers will surely kill them. Dear Kamsa, as a subject to our kingdom, I shall carry out your command; but, you are following the way of injustice, only to save your own life. But don’t worry. I will surely go to Vrindavan and will bring Krishna and Balram to Mathura Hmmmm Saying so, Akrur left for Vrindavan. Once he reached the house of Nanda Gopal, his mind filled with thoughts of Krishna. He saw Balram and Krishna playing in the courtyard. Akrur’s joy knew no bounds. I’m here to invite you for Dhanur Yagna and a wrestling match arranged by Kamsa. He is planning to kill both of you, in the wrestling match. I have been asked to take both of you in my chariot. We are eagerly waiting for the right time to meet our uncle. This is a nice opportunity to meet him and settle things. The next day, Krishna and Balram set off to Mathura to meet Kamsa. Yashoda bid him a tearful farewell. Before sunset, Akrur, Krishna and Balram reached Mathura.
