Garuda and Nagas

How were the Maruts born? | Story of Garuda and Naagas | Hari Vamsa-10

In one fight that broke between the Devatas and Asuras, Devi Aditi approached her husband Kashypa and asked her to bless her sons, Indra and other Devatas with victory. Overpowered by dissatisfaction that came about by the defeat of the Asuras in major battles that ensued between the two parties, she sought a boon of bearing powerful sons from her husband.
