Summary: This story provides a perfect contrast to the story of Drona and Drupada! Sudama, a poor brahmin boy, became a childhood friend of Krishna when they studied with the same guru. Later, when he goes to visit Krishna, he brings a humble gift of flattened rice (powa). Krishna is delighted by the gift and, when Sudama returns home, he finds that a miracle has taken place in his absence.
