Tales of Balarama: Balarama was Krishna's elder brother and his mate in their joint exploits. Balarama is simple-minded and depends on his physical strength in combat. Balarama's symbol was his plough. He used the plough to make a channel from the river Yamuna to a far-off dry land. It was the plough that procured for him the suitable bride Revati. Balarama and Krishna jontly fought with Kamsa in their early years. But Balarama kept himself away from the later war of Kauravas and Pandavas.

Sudama: Sudama's gift was small and inexpensive, but Krishna found it priceless as it came with selfless love. Krishna, who had both wealth and fame at his command, received it with pure joy. Life had taken the two friends on different paths, and Sudama was now painfully poor. Their affection overcame all differences, however. A simple meal became equal to a luxurious feast - and magically turned a poor hut into a mansion of gold.

Krishna and Shishupala: Jaya and Vijaya, the guards at Vishnu's abode, were vain and rude and were cursed to be born thrice in the world of mortals. The contrite guards were subsequently permitted one concession: they would be killed in each of their separate births by one of the incarnations of Vishnu. Thus, first they were born as Hiranyaksha and Hiranyakashipu, next as Ravana and Kumbhakarna and last as Shishupala and Dantavaktra. While the first two pairs were leading characters in their times, Shishupala remains a minor character in the Mahabharata and Dantavaktra, almost a nonentity. Shishupala for all his show of valour remains a man of straw. In fact his only distinction was that he died at the hands of Krishna. He is also remembered as the jilted suitor of Rukmini.

Krishna and The False Vasudeva: Paundraka Vasudeva had his name common with that of Krishna Vaasudeva. His sycophants led him to believe that he was as strong and powerful as Krishna. How he fell into disgrace and disaster is told in this story based on the Bhagawat Purana.

Aniruddha: Usha was the daughter of demon-king Bana with a thousand heads, unconquerable by anyone not equal to Shiva. Usha saw an unknown, handsome young hero in her dream and fell in love with him. She opened her heart to her companion Chitralekha ('maker of pictures') but could not name the man. Chitralekha made drawings of the well-known princes from which Usha identified her sweetheart. He turned out to be Aniruddha, grandson of Krishna. Chitralekha landed in Krishna's palace at night and brought sleeping Aniruddha to Usha's quarters. Loved by and secretly married to Usha, he stayed on. Having known Aniruddha's whereabouts, Krishna and his army invaded Bana's capital and carried away the couple.
