Devas are 'busy' in their Swarglok (heaven). Technology has crossed the boundaries of earth and even non-mortal devas had become techno-geeks. They converse in Hinglish. Meanwhile, a terrific war is being fought between the Devas and the Asuras. In this war, Lord Vishnu slices the demon Rahuketu into two parts through his stomach. His collapse invokes the Guru of Asuras, Guru Shukracharya and he comes forward to battle with Lord Vishnu. He also slices a large snake named Kaladansha into two parts. Lord Vishnu gains the upper hand in the war and throws Shukracharya into space. Shukracharya announces a prophecy throughout the Universe warning Lord Vishnu that the same humans whom he is protecting, in Kali Yuga, will themselves become very cruel than even demons, and a day will come when their cruelty will give rise to the greatest demon of the Universe which will engulf the whole humankind. Shukracharya then transforms himself into Planet Shukra or Venus and it becomes the home of demons. Later he joins Rahuketu's sliced body with that of Kaladansh's tail and vice versa. This gives rise to two demons Rahu and Ketu. Shukracharya declares that as long as his Sarpdand i.e. Snake Wand lives, the demons will remain powerful.
