Story of Satyabhama & Krishna killing demon Narakasura and defeating Indra

Among the queens, Satyabhama was most feisty, aggressive, highly temperamental and argumentative. She always used to offer an argument, which Krishna would enjoy. Not only was Satyabhama a very courageous and strong-willed woman, she was also skillful in archery. She even accompanied Krishna to kill the demon Narakasura. While Krishna kills the demon in Krishna-oriented scriptures, Satyabhama, the manifestation of Bhudevi – the mother of Narakasura, kills the demon to fulfil a curse that he will be killed by his mother in Goddess-centric texts. At Satyabhama’s behest, Krishna also defeats Indra, the king of heaven and the gods and gets the celestial parijat tree for her.
