Sudarshan chakra curse

Lord Vishnu is famous for destroying the pride of his devotees. Once Sudarshan chakra became proud of its closeness to the lord, thinking itself to be his dearest possession.
 
It thought that Vishnu was dependent on it to kill the evil. So Vishnu cursed the Sudarshan chakra to take birth on earth as a human!
 
As per mythology, sudarshan chakra then reincarnated as Kartavirya Arjun. He grew up to be the legendary king of Haihayas kingdom, with capital at Mahishmati, on the banks of Narmada River, Madhya Pradesh.
