BALARÂMA

Hindu Agriculture God

Also known as Bala-Râma, Balabhadra-Râma, Balarâma

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, Balarâma had white skin and paled into insignificance beside the heroic Krishna. Spent most of his later years plowing fields and hitting people.
