Krishn is not the part of the Mahaabhaarat, still He is the hero of the Mahaabhaarat. Here are the details of His life before appearing in Mahaabhaarat scenes.

This section contains some stories which are out of the main stream of Mahaabhaarat, although they are from Mahaabhaarat only. They can only be accessed either from here, or from relevant contexts in the main story, or from the " Stories on the Index to Mahaabhaarat".

This section presents many Mahaabhaarat stories with a different perspective which you might have not felt.
