Today we will tell you about that secret of Mahabharat you would have never heard or thought of. Krishna has always been explicit about His relationships, be it Rukmini or Sathya Bhama.
As to the observation Krishna had 16, wives please refer my post under the same name. Tardily she made approach, blushing with increasing loveliness, and appeared in the presence of the princes.
Bond between Krishna and Draupadi
Mighty and high-born men were there. The Pandavas beheld in the galleries their enemies Duryodhana, Karna, and all the great Kauravas, and they p. Now the Pandavas were still disguised as Brahmans, and stood among the holy men. An aged and white-haired Brahman, clad in white, approached the high altar, chanting mantras. He spread the holy grass and poured out oil; then he kindled the sacred fire, and the offering to the gods was blessed.
Thereafter the thousand trumpets were sounded, and a tense silence fell upon the buzzing crowd. Whosoever can bend this bow, and strike with an arrow yonder whirling target set on high, may, if his lineage is noble, claim Draupadi for his bride.
My words are truth! Their hearts were filled with love for the maiden and with hate for one another. Rivals frowned upon rivals. Those who had been close friends became of a sudden angry enemies because that Draupadi was so beautiful. Each of the love-sick monarchs gazed upon the mighty bow and upon the whirling target on high, and for a time no man sought to lift the bow lest he should be unable to bend it and then be put to shame.
At length a rajah, more bold than the others, picked it up and tried his strength without avail; another followed and another, but failed to string it. Soon many rajahs strained their arms in vain, and some fell upon the ground and groaned, while the laughter of the people pealed around the barriers. The gods had assembled in mid-air and looked down with steadfast eyes.
At length proud Karna strode forward; he took the bow and bent it and fixed the bowstring. Then he seized an arrow. Drupada and his son were alarmed, fearing he might succeed and claim the bride. Suddenly Draupadi intervened, for she would not have the son of a charioteer for her lord. She said, speaking loudly: He cast down the bow and walked away, gazing towards the sun.
A buzz of merry voices arose from beyond the barriers. Meanwhile the Pandava brethren, disguised as Brahmans, looked on with the others. Then suddenly silence fell upon everyone, for Arjuna p. The Brahmans applauded him, shaking their deerskins. He would not go forward if he were not confident of success. He strode forward like to a stately elephant and bared his broad shoulders and ample chest.
dharmashastra - the truth behind my dharma: Krishna & Karna
He was nimble as a lion, and calm and self-possessed. Ere he lifted the bow, he walked round it; then he addressed a prayer to the gods. People who talk about his childhood and the injustice, should also not forget the injustice he served unto others. He, tho' noble in several deeds, is surely not the epitome of all that is noble. He was haughty as any other character in the great epic.
And was filled with just as much pride. In the end, he was killed because he too was part of wrong. Krishna had no qualms in killing him. I say Krishna killed him, because Arjuna was just an instrument. Through his Gita, he clearly explained this to Arjuna and us. People can question if the lord can take the law into his hands or if the lord can adopt not so straight forward means. Krishna himself says 'no'. Everyone will pay for his or her actions.
In the entire Mahabharata, Krishna gave ample oppurtunities to either side to exercise prudence and to correct their ways. He even approached Karna to change his ways, and the truth about his brothers. Karna, rightfully stood behind his friend. But he never tried to reason with Dhuryodhana, about his wrongs. Is it because he knew he was usefull to Dhuryodhana only if he spewed hatred against the Pandavas. What Krishna also highlights with these characters is that, it doesnt matter what the arms, protection, skills, knowledge, friends and family you have to support you?
