Kumbhakarna was younger brother of Ravana. He is famous because he used to sleep for six months. Every time he awoke, he ate food and many other things in huge quantity. Here are some of the interesting facts to know about him.
Mixture of good and bad
It is said that he was a good character except the fact that he killed many people (monks) just to test & show his power.
Indra, the king of the gods was unhappy and jealous of him as Kumbhakarna was known to be very courageous, spiritual and brilliant at mind.
He worshipped for Lord Brahma and was asked for a blessing. Instead of asking for “Indraasana” (chair of Indra), he mistakenly asked for “Nidraasana” (couch for sleeping). This is why he used to sleep for six months.
He knew his brother was wrong
When his brother Ravana told him to fight against Lord Rama, Kumbhakarna wasn’t happy and he told his brother not to do wrong things and stop fighting with Rama. But still he fought when his brother didn’t agree with his view.
His character is comparable with Dushashana of Mahabharata. Both Kumbhakarna and Dushashana fought for their brothers unwillingly even when they knew their brothers were wrong.
