As a child I heard this story about a Hindu avatar which has stayed with me as I find it very interesting.
It's regarding death of one of the Vishnu's avatar (or that of an another Hindu god). The avatar was sent to do a particular thing on earth but after doing that he becomes too indulgent in the family life of the avatar. That is he forgets he is a God and continues to live life like an ordinary man with love for his wife and family. On seeing this, the gods then send somebody to kill the avatar so to release him from worldly life and bring him back to heavens.
Can somebody please provide more details about this story as in who this avatar was and other information?
