General definition (in Hinduism)
Bandy was a son of Varuna by a mortal woman. He was the royal scholar at the court of King Janaka of Mithila and was famed for his learning. He had issued a challenge to all scholars that whoever defeats him in debate would win great riches, and that the loser would be drowned in the river. Tempted by the lure of riches, many learned men tried, but they were defeated by Bandy, who, true to the conditions of the contest, drowned them in the river.
