Hearing the commotion, other asses, who were demon friends of Dhenukasura, came to attack and avenge the death of their friend. As they kicked Krishna and Balarama, the transcendental boys grabbed their hind feet and threw them up into the palm trees. The forest looked like a great windstorm had damaged it, and the dead bodies of the demons looked like various different colored clouds that had settled in the broken trees.
The boys returned home that evening and told the villagers all about what had happened, and everyone gazed admiringly upon Krishna and Balarama. After that people began to go to the forest of Talavana to collect fruit.
