According to the legends, the birth of Lord krishna took place under extraordinary circumstances.Krishna was an incarnation of Lord Vishnu , who comes to the world to get the people rid of all evil demons.He was born at midnight on a dark ,rainy night to 'Devaki' and 'Vasudev' who had been imprisoned by Devaki's brother Kansa.

It had been foretold that the eight son of Devaki would kill the evil king Kansa.Upon hearing this prophesy, Kansa had his sister put in to prison.He killed her seven children one by one, but when Krishna was born, there was divine intervention to save the life of baby Krishna.The guards had fallen into deep slumber and were unable to inform their king about the newborn child.

A voice commanded Vasudev to take the baby to Gokul and exchange with the newborn baby of Nanda and Yashoda.The shackles and the prison gates opened miraculously and Vasudev carried the child in a small basket, wading through the waters of Yamuna.As it was a dark stormy night, the waters of Yamuna were raging but subside to let Vasudev pass.A huge snake known as Asisesha with 2000 hoods, glided behind them, with its hoods forming a protective canopy over the child.

When vasudev returned with Nanda's child, the shackles fastened and the doors closed and the guards awakened.kansa came and picked up the child to hurl it to the wall and kill her but somehow the baby slipped from his grasp and took the form of a goddess, laughing at kansa , she vanished after tlling him that the one who would kill him had already taken birth and was elsewhere.

As a little boy , Krishna was the heartbeat of Gokul, a mischievous prankster, who was favourite amongst the gopikas.He used to steal curd and butter from the houses of gopikas.Even though he was a child , he performed several miracles.His exploits of ' asuras(devils), vanquished the kali Nag, and later he killed Kansa as it had been foretold.
