|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 43: Kṛṣṇa Kills the Elephant Kuvalayāpīḍa|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.43.30
ayaḿ cāsyāgrajaḥ śrīmān
pralambo nihato yena
vatsako ye bakādayaḥ
ayam — this; ca — and; asya — His; agra-jaḥ — elder brother; śrī-man — the possessor of all opulences; rāmaḥ — Lord Balarāma; kamala-locanaḥ — the lotus-eyed; pralambaḥ — the demon Pralamba; nihataḥ — killed; yena — by whom; vatsakaḥ — Vatsāsura; ye — who; baka — Bakāsura; ādayaḥ — and others.
This lotus-eyed elder brother of His, Lord Balarāma, is the proprietor of all transcendental opulences. He has killed Pralamba, Vatsaka, Baka and other demons.
In fact two of the demons mentioned here were killed by Kṛṣṇa, not Balarāma. The reason for the mistake is that as news of Kṛṣṇa's exploits spread among ordinary people, the facts became somewhat muddled. The same tendency can be observed in modern newspapers.
