“Man is made by his belief. As he believes, so he is!
The time came when Devaki got pregnant for the eighth time.
“The eighth son born to Vasudeva and Devaki will become the reason of your end.” Kansa was terrified because of the fear of his possible death. He got mad, lost his appetite and couldn’t sleep anymore, as the prophecy of the oracle isn’t something that can be proven wrong easily. His hands were trembling at the thought of the birth of the eighth child, who would become the reason of his end.
Down in the dungeons, wailed Devaki. Vasudeva was trying hard to console his wife but Devaki was terrified. A mother, whose seven children died in front her eyes, couldn’t stand the pain anymore.
“My eighth child will be born in a day and he will kill this one too, oh mighty gods, please save my child! I can’t see this anymore” she turned to Vasudeva. “Why didn’t you let my brother kill me that day? At least, I wouldn’t be dying every day! Do gods kept me alive so that I can watch my children being murdered in front of my eyes? Why?” she wailed.
The night soon ended and the next day arrived. Devaki spent the whole night in tears. Dusk gave way to a terrible night as had not been seen earlier in Mathura. It seemed like the whole world could understand Devaki’s pain and joined her in mourning of her unborn child. The world world fell silent until the winds started howling and the clouds in the sky announced the raging storm.
Suddenly, there was a pin drop silence. And the silence was broken by the cry of the new born baby. The divine child, a son, was born to devaki at the midnight in the prison.
The whole prison got filled with dazzling divine light.
