Lord Krishna – the most clever and witty God is under question! Was he actually a good father? Let us know the story of Lord Krishna and his son Samba.
Many of you must be knowing about the famous, destructive Samba. He was the unruly and adamant son of Krishna. Below are certain unaccepted and disturbing activities Samba used to do.
He used to misbehave with his Father’s younger wives by disguising himself as Krishna – getting furious with this activity of Samba, Krishna had cursed him with a skin disease.
He had attempted to kidnap Duryodhana’s daughter – this had led to a big war among the Kauravas and the Yadavas.
Samba pretended as a pregnant woman and harassed the sages – The sages hence cursed him to give birth to an iron mace which will be responsible for the end of the Yadu clan.
Isn’t it difficult to digest that Krishna’s son was so destructive? What can be the reason behind it? People often say that “charity begins at home”, so is it that he was an over pampered kid or is it that he was a neglected kid!
Now, coming back to the history we have come across, have you ever heard the good stories of Krishna with his sons? No, right! So, this is because he was always busy with Arjuna and the Pandavas and in the plannings of conducting Mahabharata. Probably, him neglecting his son got such consequences. The most efficient knowledge imparter – Lord Krishna, could have made his son a great preacher by staying his side. So, what is the lesson we got from this?
Lord Krishna has a message for us from his own story. ” Do not engross your entire time in achieving success, money, name, fame or respect. Our family needs our time. Give them the required care and affection. Family and the professional life should be kept in balance.
