One day, Narada appeared before Rumkini and told her that an incarnation of Kama, who was burnt by Shiva's gaze, would be born to her. Soon, Rukmini gave birth to a son. He was named Pradyumna.

Baby PradyumnaMeanwhile, a terrible demon called Sambara was cursed to die by Pradyumna. As soon as the demon came to know of Pradyumna's birth, he took the shape of a woman. Sambara kidnapped the baby when he was just six days old, and threw him into the ocean. A big fish swallowed the child but Pradyumna managed to stay alive inside the fish. Meanwhile, Narada appeared before Sambara's maid, Mayavati, and informed her about the divine child. Mayavati was the reincarnation of Kama's wife Rati, and she was earnestly waiting for his return. Overjoyed by Narada's information, she recovered the baby from the fish and took him under her care.

Pradyumna grew up to be a handsome young man and resembled Kama. One day, Mayavati told him the story of his birth and Sambara. Hearing all this, Pradyumna grew furious and vowed to take revenge.

Mayavati had great magical powers. She empowered Pradyumna with great strength to fight the mighty demon. Having gained the power, Pradyumna challenged Sambara to a duel. Eventually, he killed him after a long drawn out fight.

Finally, Pradyumna returned to Dwarka accompanied by Mayavati. Upon reaching there, everybody, including Rukmini, came out to see the divine Pradyumna. Krishna who knew everything, invited Narada to narrate his story. After hearing his tale, Rukmini embraced her long lost child.

Recognising them as incarnations of Kama and Rati, Krishna got them married in a grand ceremony.
