In another tale, a deadly snake was found poisoning the waters of the Yamuna river. This troubled the Brijwasis (people living in Brij, now in Uttar Pradesh). To alleviate their suffering, Krishna (an avatar of Lord Vishnu) defeated the snake and forced it to take back its poison from the river. Thereafter, Krishna blessed it that whoever should pray and offer milk to the snake god, they would be protected from the evil.
