MATHURA 
The cradle of Krishna Lila

Kamsa was virtually a formidable demon by name Kalanemi in human form. He was a great dictator and relied more on muscle power than the spiritual; and in tune with his inner venomous nature-rakshasa swabhava, he usurped the throne, on hearing from the Akasavani that his sister's eighth son would kill him. To prove the falsity of the aerial voice and to establish his invincible power, he forthwith imprisoned his sister Devaki along with Vasudeva, her husband, setting aside all the reasonable pleas. Later, he put to sword ruthlessly one after another, six children of the imprisoned couple. In accordance with the divine plan, the seventh embryo was transferred to Rohini, the first wife of Vasudeva, and the son thus born was named SankarshanaBalararna, due to the fact of extraction and transference of embryo. The eighth child-the future Purana Purushothama was exchanged soon after birth with Yasoda's daughter called Yogamaya, who miraculously flew into air and became Durga, when Kamsa raised his sword to kill in the routine way. Before melting into air, she predicted that his Yama escaping from the prison was brought up safe elsewhere. From then began a series of futile trails of Kamsa, and he left no means un attempted to kill Krishna, his target.
