Mahabali The king was from the line of Diti, a deity in the Rigveda. In the days of Ridveda, there were two major groups of Aryans; The Indo-Aryans who believed that Aditi was the true mother of the gods and Irano-Aryans (Dasyu) who believed Diti, the twin sister was. This caused a split between the Indians and the Aryans with many Daityas migrating towards Iran, but some remained in India. Mahabali is the descendent of this line. The real name of Mahabali is Indrasena. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mahabali Indo-Aryans - Irano-Aryans Aditi - Diti
