INDIAN MYTHOLOGY

The Hindu and Buddhist Gods of India...

BALARAMA

Indian Agriculture God

God of Farming and Strength

He shared a womb with his brother KRISHNA after being rescued from certain death at the hands of uncle KAMSA.

Unlike his dark-skinned brother, BALARAMA had white skin and paled into insignificance beside the heroic KRISHNA. Spent most of his later years plowing fields and hitting people.
