Kabandha Short Story | Indian Mythological Story
A headless monster lived in a forest named Kraunch. Kabandha had neither a neck nor a head; it had only one eye. His stomach itself acts like a mouth. Two huge and powerful arms were attached to his stomach, which he used to hunt wild animals. Kabandha was not always a demon; once Lord Indra struck him with his Vajra, causing his head to be severed and leaving him disfigured. His only hope of salvation was to meet Lord Rama and be killed by him.
