SHISHUPALA

Also known as SISUPALA

The third and final incarnation of Vijaya, the cheeky gate keeper of Vaikuntha, born with three eyes and four arms.

His extra bits and bobs fell off when he sat on a certain Gods knee, and under normal circumstances this would be wonderful news, but a mysterious voice had forewarned his parents that the same guy would also own the hands that Shishupula would die by.

So, Shishupala was getting ready for his marriage to Rukmini, suited and booted and ready to roll, when the very same God turned up and threw a spanner in the works by sweeping his wife-to-be off her feet. It turns out Rukmini was an Avatar of Lakshmi who never wanted to marry Shishupala in the first place and to make matters worse Krishna was actually Shishupula's cousin who had rid him of his extra body parts all those years ago. It's nice to know you can rely on family.
