Shishupal Vadh by Lakshman Bhave is a religious book. This is an interesting book that contains the story of Shishupala‘s slaughter. Shishupala (Protector Of Children) was the son of Damaghosha, after whom descendants to Chedi Kings were named Hindu Ghosis, a tribe king of Yadavas in Chedi. In Mahabharata, Shishupala was born with three eyes and four arms.
His parents wanted to leave off the child’s hands. But then a voice came from the Heaven above and commanded his parents, ”Not To Do So”. Also, Heaven said,” Shishupala’s superfluous bodyparts would disappear. when a certain person took the child into his lap and also he would eventually die at the hands of that same person.” At that time, Lord Krishna had come there to visit his newborn cousin Shishupala.
