Krishna is reported to have Killed only 4 people in his life time. Chanoora – the Wrestler
Kamsa – his maternal uncle
Shishupaala and Dantavakra – his cousins.
Life was not fair to him at all.
His mother was from Ugra clan, and Father from Yadava clan, interracial marriage.
He was born dark skinned.
He was not named at all, throughout his life. The whole village of Gokul started calling him the black one – Krishna. He was ridiculed and teased for being black, short and adopted too. His childhood was wrought with life threatening situations.
Drought and threat of wild wolves made them shift from Gokul to vrindavan at the age 9.
He stayed in Vrindavan till 14-16 years. He killed his own uncle at the age – 14-16 years at Mathura. He then released his biological mother and father.
He never returned to Vrindavan ever again.
He had to migrate to Dwaraka from Mathura due to threat of a Sindhu King – Kala Yaavana. He defeated Jarasandha with the help of Vainatheya Tribes on Gomantaka hill (now Goa).
He rebuilt Dwaraka. He then left to Sandipani’s Ashram in Ujjain to start his schooling at age 16-18. He had to fight the pirates from Afrika and rescue his teachers son – Punardatta who was kidnapped near Prabhasa, a sea port in Gujarat.
After his education, he came to know about his cousins fate of Vanvas. He came to their rescue in Wax house and later his cousins got married to Draupadi. His role was immense in this saga.
Then, he helped his cousins to establish Indraprastha and their Kingdom.
He saved Draupadi from embarrassment.
He stood by his cousins during their exile.
He stood by them and made them win the Kurushetra war.
He saw his cherished city, Dwaraka washed away.
He was killed by a hunter in nearby forest.
He never did any miracles. His life was not a successful one. There was not a single moment when he was at peace throughout his life. At every turn he had challenges and even more bigger challenges. He faced everything and everyone with a sense of responsibility and yet remained unattached. He is the only person who knew the past and probably future, yet he lived at that present moment always.
He and his life is truly an example for every human being.
