The Demoness Putana

To kill Krishna, he engaged a demoness named Putana. After specially treating the demoness Putana so that her nipples were poisoned he disguised her as a nymph and sent her to Gokul to try to breast-feed Krishna and kill him. But God that he was, the child Krishna saw through the game and as a miracle, we are told, the demoness fainted, the moment Krishna's lips touched her breast. Kansa plot to eliminate Krishna was foiled. But as a result of sucking the poisoned milk Krishna's originally fair skin colour turned dark.
