They relate to a number of events and acts relating to the life of Krishna such as Kansa's atrocities on the people, the plight of Krishna's parents, Devaki and Vasudeva, the birth of Krishna, his childhood pranks and leelas with gopis in Vrindavan, his brave deeds, his visit to Mathura and the death of Kansa at the hands of Krishna. Written for modern young readers, in a simple and easy to understand language, the stories contain the rich religious tradition of India that has come down through the centuries and continue to be revered today.
