Story of Mallikā and her husband General Bandhula. Mallinkā looked as if she had no blood, with dry skin and was never pregnant. One day Bandhula took her to have a bath in a lake belonging to 32 princes. There were fighting between Bandhula and the 32 princes. All the 32 princes died and were born as their children, and the children later died again in fighting, due to their previous Karma.
