Krishna and Jarasandha
Krishna and Jarasandha
Description
Jarasandha was the emperor of Aryavarta (north India) at the time when the Pandavas were ruling at Indraprastha. Most of the kings of North India 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 and Krishna knew this. Jarasandha had a split, personality, in a purely physical sense. He was born split and it was the (black) magical touch of a sorceress that had joined the two halves to complete the man. This joint was at once the source of his strength and his weakness.

Mighty men of mythology, be they of the East or of the West, were always characterized by at vital flaw which, in reverse, would turn out to be a vital asset, Karma's Kavacha (armour) and Achilles' heels are classic examples. The secret of the heroes' strength often remained locked in this dual nature of their gifts. Only one who knew the secret could vanquish them. Jarasandha's weak point was known only to Krishna. How he brings about the fall of the mighty and evil emperor is narrated in this Amar Chitra Katha, based on the Bhagawat Purana arid the Mahabharata.

Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
