|I for Indra sitting on Airawat|
The people of Gokul listened to Krishna and venerated Mount Govardhana while Nandagopan watched the skies fearfully, expecting Lord Indra’s wrath to create havoc. A smiling Krishna did his best to reassure his father only in vain.
A lightning bolt struck, followed by the sound of thunder as he arrived, the lord of the Devas, on his white elephant Airavat. The majestic elephant with five trunks seemed to float down from the skies, Lord Indra seated on its back. Nandagopan’s fear reached its height when Airavat landed on the ground, close to Mount Govardhana.
The people looked on in awe as Indra climbed down from his huge mount. He folded his hands in greeting to Lord Krishna and his father. Nodding his head at the others, Indra walked to the foot of Mount Govardhana and prostrated on the ground, paying his obeisance to the mountain that gave its bounty to the people of Gokul.
Nandagopan watched on, his mouth open in amazement!

NOTE: I strongly believe that no power of God is negative. Such things as punishing Gods are tales woven to fit into the third dimensional illusory world that we are living in right now. Hence I have given the story of Indra’s wrath a new spin in the above tale.
