There are four Krishn as there are three Raam - Vaasudev Krishn, Ved Vyaas Krishn, Arjun Krishn and Draupadee Krishnaa. Here we are talking about Vaasudev Krishn.

Stories of Krishn's birth and childhood are not at all related to Mahaabhaarat, that is why they are not given in main Mahaabhaarat section. Still without understanding Krishn's activities, it is difficult to understand Mahaabhaarat, because he is the Super Hero of Mahaabhaarat. And if He is the Super Hero of Mahaabhaarat, no part of His life can be separate from Mahaabhaarat.

Although Krishn is known by hundreds of names, but some of His well-known names are given here.

Here His activities, prior coming to main Mahaabhaarat story stream, are given in short, in fact Bhaagvat Puraan's 10th Skandh is the main source of Krishn's life's events, so if somebody wants to read them in detail, he should read them there.
