After extensive research of 60 years, they came up with “The Critical Edition of the Mahabharata”. Krishna wanted the war, he had promised to ensure it happens to Draupadi. He had all the qualities of all pandavas combined. - Arjuna was angered at this compliment and lamented to Krishna in anger and said "You have never complimented to any of my heroid deeds but here you're complimenting an enemy who is out here to kill me??" He left the kingdom for personal grief, knowing fully well, that Dhritarashtra was blind, and as per Vidur, unable to manage the kingdom.Pandu should have returned when Yudhistir was born. Karna – “They are not my brothers. And Kunti wanted war – as soon as Krishna comes to take his leave from her after the peace mission fails she sends a message through Krishna … This means that Karna is invited in the Swayamvar. Somewhere I read that this was necessary and part of leela by Krishna. सुकुण्डलश्चित्रसेनः सुवर्चाः कनकध्वजः | but then. He always wanted to know who it was who let him off in the river in that little box. Hello dear friends,i would also like to add what i have understood from what all i have read about Mahabharata. during swamber before Karna nobody could lift the dhanush , but Karna lifted it , then Maan Draupdi asked to Lord Sri Kirhsna what to do . I dont think that was a humiliation .. Now before you think that I am one of those male chauvinistic pig who would support Karna blindly , let me assure that I am at best , a measured observer , nothing more or nothing less ...Draupadi was already humilated to begin with at the following stages ----- >1. It is not possible, since in the Dwaapar Yug, Caste system did not exist, but, Varna system existed. I know anyone can justify this ..saying that it was the prevalent norms and so on .. Oh please!Did you know that in the original story she doesn't say anything? युयुत्सुर्वातवेगश्च भीमवेगधरस्तथा | So what on earth are these Brahmins doing here ) .... At this time , the wise Krishna somehow justifies the rationale and gives a lecture about things that only he can give .. and in short buys the argument in favour of Arjuna .. and he won .. That said , where was ethics & moral rights practiced here especially when the basic condition which Karna satifies was hardly the case with Arjuna .. Cant she choose who she wants to marry? Draupadi did not tell regret words to Karna, but she confessed during the exile in 13 year near some lake. Okay .. As above highlighted, it is clear that Karna attends Draupadi’s Swayamvar along with other kings including Duryodhana, Durvisaha, Durmukha, etc. We tend to look at things from people's view, who cheated who and who did what, etc. Why ?also could you write what Maan Draupadi replied to Karna afetr getting refusal answer from the Lord Sri krishna . you all say that abimanyu was killed by unrighteous means ... but the truth is during the war .when chakravuha was formed by kauravas arjuna was not present to penetrate it.. so pandavas ask abhimanyu to do the job .. he says that he knows only how to get in .. he does not know how to come out .. so the pandavas assure him that when he penetrates the vuha they will cover him.... relying on them abhimanyu penetrates the vuha and the pandavas fail to protect him.. so he was naturally surrounded by enemies .. at this point he was alone present between the kauravas .. having being outnumbered he was killed....... there is no adharma done by karna or guru dhrone in killing abhimanyu ,it was pandavas carelessness which got him killed, i think karna was best during the virat yudh he fight without dijaya dhanush n also he was undefeatable tht time coz he have cawaz instead arjun used the sambohan astras which make all unconscious regarding gandharva capturing the duryodhana karna was weapons less tht time n also they r in full entertainment ragarding who is best karna wid a solo power has got digbijaya but whisch is possible only wid combination of whole pandavas simply karna is best. What Karna did was right. Even in sources where she calls him a Sutaputra, in the next verse they say that great warriors like Karna and Shalya could not lift the bow!And even if she said that why is it an insult? In fact, there are many shrines for Goddess Draupadi, spread in Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. Our audience is familiar with the popular version of the story in which Draupadi rejects Karna. Shishupala was in fact killed by Krishna during the Rajasuya Yaga. So Vishnu just protects and balances off the world, thus ensuring the destruction of Karna who was supposed to be indestructible.These are just my opinions... God is far too great for us to understand...p.s. This does not sit well with many. Even Arjun? Arjuna is the Head Priest, you -Krishna are the presiding deity. Because if Draupadi does not reject Karna, then people do not sympathise with Karna. and exactly my thoughts! In my opinion, it could have been two things:1) Karna's life was a test. When Karna tried to compete, she certainly didn’t favor him in any way. we have sympathy for him. They do not want to mess with it for the sake of authenticity. It means that if kings like Karna and Shalya who are world famous and well versed in the Dhanur Vidya (archery skills) failed in the task, then how this weak Brahmin (referring to Arjuna) who has no knowledge of weapons succeed in the test? Even when Arjuna killed Karna's sarthi...karna not even by mistake shot an arrow that might hurt Arjuna's saarthiafter his truth was revealed...Krishna compared how small pandav were to KarnaKrishna, Karna and Bheesma were noblest of all people. Thanks & do comment in case you see any discrepancy, These are just my understanding and I could be wrong. This is a Flickr badge showing public photos from. If Abhimanyu's death was trecherous , I fail to guess how you would classify Bhishma's , Drona's, Jayadratha's, Duryodhana's & Karna's death !! So where are they !!! Hi Buddy .. Great post .. Anoop - i see that too. then Lord said no . In this version, Karna is among the group of participating kings in the Swayamvar. Imagine being respected and obeyed by 99 brothers! Personal opinions/ assumptions would mostly be baseless and cannot be trusted up on or considered for further arguments. But Karna refused the offer. Karna angered by this retaliated in sort and Arjuna's chariot bared moved a few inches and to this Krishna shouted "Baley Karna!" Krishna believes it so for years later when he tries to lure Karna away from the Kauravas he offers the following bribe, “You will be king. That, he was able to be that good in spite of such difficult circumstances, is what I feel makes him the most admired character in Mahabharata. दुर्योधनो दुर्विषहो दुर्मुखो दुष्प्रधर्षणः | शल्य = Shalya Arjuna was not the one in the epic who spoke about his agony or what he was going through. People who want to know seem to understand the meaning or the spirit of the word. Krishna: Do you know that you are the eldest Kunti Putra. Arjuna on the other hand was made by Dronacharya to take revenge from King Drupad. His mission fails but before leaving for Upaplavya, meets Karna alone. Still he was about to help draupadi....if krishna was even a moment late, karna would've killed Dushashan. She forgave Jayadratha after he abducted her. Let me tell you what your parentage is. – SECTION CLXXXIX. However every Pandav and Krishna used unethical means during the war and used every chance at all times to remind Karna of his low caste. Possibly, he knew that once throne is abdicated, he has no right to it nor his sons who were not his sons anyway. History praises those who win. You must read the 'Mrutyunjay', then you will know why Karna did so? If she would not insult Karna, Karna would never insult her. Even Yudhistra never stopped his brothers from insulting Karan when he was supposed to be dharmaraj. There's no point in the epic where he tries to be god; he tries to be good (and succeeds often) and yet he has his fair share of fallacies just like all of us have. Rakhi – Krishna and Draupadi. shows like the famous B.R. One cannot know who their biological mother and/ father is until & unless told by her. This offer of Krishna to Karna is the most discussed part from Mahabharata. The killing of Abhimanyu was trecaherous !! परायणैः = well versed Some passages from BORI’s critical edition and their meaning which proves whether Draupadi rejects Karna or not: धृष्टद्युम्न उवाच|| Karna refused all – temptations, reasoning, fear, and the revelation of the secret of his birth. Karna was known as daanveer Karna. So you see, Draupadi was considered as nothing but a pawn by someone who ought to have been her father .2. Moreover he liked Karna.Karna is praised many times by Lord Krishna. Our audience is familiar with the popular version of the story in which Draupadi rejects Karna. Does Draupadi rejects Karna saying that Karna is a Sutaputra? Second Instance : During the Sywayamvar , all the kings tryout but ( obviously) even fail to lift the bow .... and so does Duryodhana .. Now Comes Karna .. what makes u think that arjuna is a hero he always have krishna on his back somehow or the other he helps arjuna.If u see in mahabharath there are very few situations where arjuna never fights alone in the case of karna he always fight aloneU say karna insulted a draupathi in the first place pandavas insulted there own wife what kind of moron bets his own wife u call them herosi dont think so1.

He could have easily disclosed the identity of Karna..2. Its a very very instructive song. Lord Krishna praised Karna even during the battle between Arjuna and Karna. Another reason could be due to TRP (Television Rating Point). तत = that/ this But guys, what was right then is supposed to be right now and will remain so after thousand years .. and what they did can never be classified as right ..

Compared to what the Pandavas did ( which was akin to rape of Draupadi ), Karna'a act paled in comparison ( it was akin to ogling at Draupadi ).. I quote the passage from Mahabarath only to prove that Karna's hatred for the Pandavas was so huge that it clouded his every judgement.Krishna showed clearly that he too is capable of deceit, to achieve the ultimate goal. Thus the popular story that in which “Draupadi rejects Karna” is later added to the narrative. That ‘forbidden Love or secret love’ has no basis in Vyas Sanskrit Canon Mahabharata.

Krishna called Draupadi Sakhi (a she-friend) and she called him Sakha (a friend who happens to be a male). (perhaps that is the reason why Modi, being knowledgeable in such matters, took his oath as PM during that period of the day) So, Krishna was merely mentioning that Draupadi along with other queens and princesses would come to Karna's coronation. Karna, the one who called his wife names and insulted her in the Sabha. यत = If I know, let's have the swords drawn out against me !
