vicakarṣa yathā nāgaḿ
suparṇa iva līlayā
pucche — by his tail; pragṛhya — grabbing him; ati-balam — the extremely powerful (elephant); dhanuṣaḥ — bow-lengths; pañca-viḿśatim — twenty-five; vicakarṣa — He dragged; yathā — as; nāgam — a snake; suparṇaḥ — Garuḍa; iva — as; līlayā — playfully.
Lord Kṛṣṇa then grabbed the powerful Kuvalayāpīḍa by the tail and playfully dragged him twenty-five bow-lengths as easily as Garuḍa might drag a snake.
