When the first baby was born, Vasudeva,
true to his word but with heavy heart, brought the baby to Kamsa. But
Kamsa was so pleased with Vasudeva’s honesty, that he had a rare
moment of compassion. He said, “There is no need to give me this
baby; the prophecy said it would be the eight child who would kill me.”
Vasudeva took the baby home with him again, but he did not trust Kamsa.
