hiiii friends, actually, I have a doubt.Smile Yesterday my grandma was reading me an excerpy from Bhagwat Puraan, on the marriage of Kans to Jarasandh's two daughters, Asti and Prapti, but it never mentioned someone called Keshni.Confused I only watched a few epis of JSK when it was in the beginning of the show, and it showed Kans's wife as being only Keshni Devi, a devotee of KRishna. I was wondering whether any other version describes Keshni Devi?
 
I know Bhagwaat Puraan or Brahm Vaivart puraan describes only Asti and Prapti, the evil queens of Mathura who were the daughters of Jarasandh.
 
Am interesting to know about the version which has Keshni Devi being the wife of Kans. If someone knows, plsss tell me.Smile

Good question Mina - no idea why they decided to combine Asti and Prapti, turn them good, and call them Keshni... in other words, she's a fictional character LOL Similarly they Kans's mom Padmavati was renamed Nandini for some reason. The name Keshni does exist elswehere in Hindu lore, though - remember Maharaj Sagar, Shri Ram's ancestor whose sons accused Maharishi Kapil of stealing their Ashwamedh horse and for whose redemption Ganga Maa came to the earth? Keshni was his first wife.

True, that the only Keshni I've ever read of. Sometimes her name is spelt 'Kesini'. She is the daughter of the King of Vidarbha, wife of Sagara and mother of Asamanja.

^^ The show actually does tell us she's Jarasandh's daughter, and they even have her call him to Mathura to give Kans pep-talks as and when necessary (like during the Durvasa visit, remember). And after Kans's death she does fulfill the role that Asti and Prapti did in the sources which mention them, i.e. instigating Jarasandh to fight Krishna for her revenge. There is a slim chance of either of the girls being named Keshni in some other source, because  one of the Puraans (I don't remember whether its Bhaagvatam or the Padma Puraan, will have to check) call Kaikasi (Ravan's mom) Keshni in their summaries of Ram Avtaar.

^ I see, in that case Keshni was probably a character who was supposed to be a combo of Asti and Prapti. Either that or some source has either of the girls also called Keshni.

Kaikasi being called Keshni that I know but I think what Sagars shown in JSK is wrong. He had two wives for sure and none of them is called Keshni. My other friends checked it and till now they havent find Keshni as the wife of Kansa. I dont want to offend anyone but lots of sequences in JSK are fictional/false for e.g. Radha-Krishna marriage and Yashodaji taking Shri Krishna out of Gokul to keep him with her.Embarrassed
