Whatever has happened in the past cannot be reversed. We are wise enough to do whatever we deem valid and abolish whatever is invalid. Further, actions of Gods and Godesses cannot be compared to ordinary people and no one else but Shiv is comparable to Krishna. Also, people in Satyug, Tretayug and Dwaparyug were high on karm and were much more on the path of dharm in comparison to modern times. And especially in this modern world, we must act as per our dharm and wisdom.
