Revali is the daughter of Raivata, whose loveliness was such that no one could be found on earth worthy of her hand. Her father donated her to Brahma, to consult the god where a fit bridegroom was to be met with. When they arrived, the Haha, Hiihu, and others, were singing before Brahma. Raivata, waited till they had finished, imagined the ages that elapsed during their performance, to be but as a moment.
At the end of their singing Raivata prostrated himself before Brahma and explained his duty. He was informed that many successions of ages had passed away while he had been listening to the heavenly songsters; that a portion of Vishnu
was then reining on earth in the person of Balarama at Dwaraka, which had formerly been his own capital of Kusasthali. Raivata returned with his daughter to earth, where he found the race of men dwindled in stature, reduced in vigor, and enfeebled in intellect. He bestowed his unequalled daughter on Balarama, who beholding the damsel of excessively lofty height shortened her with the end of his ploughshare and she became his wife.
