Putana (Gujarati) by Gadadhar Chandra Prabhu

Published on Nov 19, 2014

In Hindu mythology, Putana is a demoness, who is killed by the infant-god Krishna. Putana is also considered as a foster-mother of Krishna as she breast-fed him, though it was with the motive of killing Krishna by poisoned milk. By offering her milk, Putana had performed “the supreme act of maternal devotion”, in the shadow of her evil motives. The myth is told and retold in Hindu scriptures and some Indian books, which portray her variously as an evil hag, an ogress or a demoness who surrendered herself to Krishna, though she initially came with evil motives.
