Story of Devaki & Vasudeva and why Kansa wanted to kill Devaki’s new born babies

During Devaki‚Äôs Swayamvara, a war broke out between Sini and Somadatta, that led to a generation of a feud between the two clans. Sini abducted Devaki for his friend Vasudeva. Devaki’s sisters were also married to Vasudeva. After the marriage ceremony, Kansa volunteered to escort the newly-weds to Mathura and drove their chariot. A celestial voice proclaims that “The eighth child of this damsel that you are ferrying shall become your death!” Angered, Kansa rises to kill Devaki but is stopped by Vasudeva who promises to deliver each child to Kansa.
