He crossed a rainy night where Sheshnag helped him. He changed his son with the girl of his friend (Yashoda and Nand Baba) and returned to the prison jail. All the doors were closed and the message was sent to Kansa that Devaki gave birth to a girl.
Kansa came and tried to slay that girl, at the same time, the girl appeared invisible from the arms of Kansa and appeared in the sky as her real form of a power girl and she warned and said, ‘Hey Kansa!
