Paundraka - The Son Of Vasudeva

Other names: Pondraak 

Paundraka, King of the Pandu state. He was a friend of Jarasandh and thought himself to be Krishna and tried to get famous in the name of “Vasudev” and “Pursottam”. Pondraak was also present at Draupadi Swayamvar (selection of her husband by a princess in a public ceremony).

Due to his ego, he sent a message to Shri Krishna to stop wearing his dress as Pandu is the only “Krishna” and hence Pitambar dhari (one who wears yellow silk cloth). If he does not do that, he should prepare for war. At this, Shri Krishna attacked him and killed him and his associate Kashiram.

When Jarasandh had attacked Mathura, that time Paundraka had supported Jarasandh. He was an old enemy of Shri Krishna and this enmity became a reason for his death.

''He was Jarasandh’s friend and thought himself to be Krishna and tried to get famous in the name of “Vasudev” and “Pursottam”. ''
