Sorry, I can't help it, doubts keep popping up in my mind like nitrogen bubbles.
So here it begins:
Vasudeva was the son of Shurasena, who had a dozen more sons and five daughters.
(Ancient Indians had a thing with children isn't it? Jise dekho uske kam se kam 6-7 putr aur 5-6 putriya hote hai)
Temporarily throw Vasudeva's brothers into the dustbin.
Look at this chap.
Vasudeva had 14 wives, acc to Harivamsa. And According to both HV and SB, he had tons of sons from each wife.
Now, the question no. one: When he was arrested along with Devaki, he already had all these children. So, where did all these 12 wives and so many children go?? (Rohini was in Gokul).
Oh, and Rohini was in Gokul. And Rohini's sons were Krita, Balarama, Sharana, Gada, Durmada, Vipula, Dhruva, etc etc. So where did the rest of the sons go when she was in Gokul?
Don't tell me Vasudeva had the rest after he came out of jail. (I know for one that Gada was younger than Krishna, so he would have been born after jail, but the others?)
Because Krita was the eldest.
Oh, and qn no 2: Jab Vasudeva ke itne saare bacche the, to phir mathura aur dwarka mein kyu Krishna aur Balaram hi dikhaye dete hai? What happened to the others?)
Now Vasudeva's wives story is kept aside. Take out his brothers from the dustbin.
(What? You already emptied your dustbin in the dump?
K fine. Now Vasudeva's brothers were decent and didn't have as many sons as him. But still they did have children.
So qn No 3: Where did they go? Why didn't they help Krishna in anything? We don't have any story about how Krishna's cousins came to his aid during troubling times...
I hope you all are still awake.
So thats all. Those who can understand this Cube root of Pi, please try to answer. If you are lost in this soup, really sorry.
