The four Kumaras, Narada, Ribhu, Hamsa, Aruni and Yati were all sons of Brahma who left home to live as naisthika­brahmacharis, life-long celibates. Adharma (Irreligion) was also born from Brahma, and he married Mrisha (Falsity), who happened to be his sister. They produced two demons named Dambha (Bluffing) and Maya (Cheating), who were then handed over to the demon Niriti, who had no children. From Dambha and Maya were born Lobha (Greed) and Nikriti (Cunning). In turn, from their combination came Krodha (Anger) and Himsa (Envy), and from their union came Kali and his sister Durukti (Harsh speech). By the combination of Kali and Durukti, Mrityu (Death) and Bhiti (Fear) were born. Then, from the union of these two was born Yatana (Excessive Pain) and Niraya (Hell). Altogether these offspring are considered to be the causes of devastation.


Svayambhuva Manu and Shatarupa had two sons, Priyavrata and Uttanapada. Although King Uttanapada had two queens, named Suniti and Suruchi, the latter was much dearer to him. Once, Uttanapada was patting Suruchi's son, Uttama as he sat upon his lap. Suniti's son, Dhruva was also trying to climb up onto Uttanapada's lap, but the king did not very much welcome him. The king was naturally inclined to treat both sons equally, but due to Suruchi's presence, he  acted in a way that would please her. Suruchi could understand this, and because she was very envious of her step-son, she took undue advantage of her husband's favoritism.


Displaying this feminine weakness, the proud Suruchi spoke so that both father and son could hear: "My dear Dhruva, you do not deserve to sit upon the throne, or the king's lap. Of course, you are also the king's son, but because you were not born from my womb, you are not qualified to sit upon your father's lap. You may be unaware of the distinction between your father's two queens, but let me assure you that your attempt is doomed to failure-. If you at all desire to sit upon the throne, you should first of all perform austerities to please the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Narayana. Then, after achieving His favor, you may get the opportunity of being born from my womb in your next life."


Just as a snake begins to breathe very heavily when struck by a stick, so Dhruva began breathing heavily due to great rage after being attacked by his stepmother's harsh words. Seeing how his father had remained silent, without making the slightest effort to protest on his behalf, Dhruva immediately left that place and went crying to his mother.
