'Daughter of Drupada'), also referred as Panchali and Yajnaseni, is the tragic heroine, one of the central characters and the common wife of the Pandavas in the Hindu epic, Mahabharata.She is described to be the most beautiful woman of her time and was prophesied to bring a major change in the future. Personal opinions/ assumptions would mostly be baseless and cannot be trusted up on or considered for further arguments. He reveals the secret of Karna’s … It can be for material pleasure or name or can be for enjoying a higher seat after death. Draupadi was born to be humiliated in her life....so whatever actions she performed in Mahabharata was just to be get humiliated by other characters! He knew draupadi had wished for 5 qualities in her husband, which were seen one in each of the pandavas... thats why she had to marry 5 men.. But karna was the one who did not do charity for either of these reasons, not even for a higher seat after death. दुर्योधनो दुर्विषहो दुर्मुखो दुष्प्रधर्षणः | That ‘forbidden Love or secret love’ has no basis in Vyas Sanskrit Canon Mahabharata. Karna was already killed 5 times before; you just finished off an already dying prey".1) When Indra asked for his armour2) When Kunti asked for the wish of Karna not killing anyone else but Arjuna3) When Parasuram cursed karna that he will forget the mantras to invoke astras4) When a sage cursed him that his chariot will be stuck in mud and his charioteer abandoned him at that juncture.5)When Krishna disguised as a brahmana asks for Karna's punyas (good deeds) as a gift - this is because Karna will not die on the battlefield because Lady Dharma will be protecting him from all harm/that mortal shot from Arjuna's bow - karna becomes impenetrable at that point and therefore unconquerable - Krishna takes away that from him and then Karna is killed.Now the interesting point to note here is:When Karna is almost dead/dying - Krishna is so pleased with Karna because even at that point, he did not refuse to donate - as far as Karna was concerned nothing belonged to him - Austerity - that is the foremost principle which a brahman should adhere to.So when Krishna asked Karna for his wishes, Karna's wishes were:1) When he dies on the battlefield, his real mother (kunti) should be informed and she should cry for his death for the whole world to hear his true heritage/lineage - he was denied this opportunity in life, at least let it be granted in death.2)If because of his orientation on the battle (alignment with the Kauravas), he is to suffer the process of rebirth - he wanted to be born as a brahman in a worthy family - the reasoning was, that the one thing that he could not do when he was Karna was provide Anna Dhaana - giving away food to the poor - because people did not want to eat the food fed by a person of questionable lineage.The most impressive part in this is, that when people are dying - they usually wish for either a protraction of life or for easing of suffering and the irony is that Karna asked for those just as any other person would do: He wanted to ease his suffering (not from wounds) but from shame he had to go through all his life of being a son of a charioteer and he wanted a continuation in life so that he can do the one thing that was denied to him in his previous birth - The ability to donate food.Karna was the only person to whom Krishna revealed one of his many forms - the form where he sits on Garuda!Karna was indestructible - and therefore had to be "put down" in an indirect way - if not for all other stories in Mahabharatha - one of them should suffice:Arjuna and Karna were engaged in a mon-a-mono combat and Arjuna hit Karna's chariot with an arrow, which dislodged karna's chariot by a hundred paces. On the other hand Pandavas were also good human beings and followed path of righteousness. Arjuna is the Head Priest, you -Krishna are the presiding deity. Many scholars having been amazed by the depth of their relationship have often suggested that there was more to Krishna Draupadi friendship than met the eye. Sahadeva’s spiritual capabilities were so advanced that he could have become a Prophet but he preferred to continue in his existing role in assisting Yudhishthira. Here's the most important conversation between Karna and Sri Krishna that is an eye opener - Mahabharata the Epic of Epics has some beautiful aspects of … We all know that 'KRISHNA' was the reincarnation of vishnu... and like all reincarnations this one too had a purpose.. what we all know is that he was born to kill his uncle 'KANSA'.. but thats not totally true.. Krishna was born to reduce the no of SHATRIYAS.. as most of them were immortal and hence there was no balance.. lot of them were unjust. But Kunti wanted comforts of palace, so is the ambition of that widow responsible for Mahabarata?Back in Hastinapur, it is natural for Duryodhan to resent these cousins who had no claims suddenly coming up for claims. I also agree with you sir.but in mahabharat it is shown that there are no perfect heroes or perfect villans. Come, join us. Artwork : Giampaolo Thomasetti. Chopra’s Mahabharat or its recent 2013 remake on Star Plus named Mahabharat sticks to the popular storyline? Its not that Arjun wasn't a mighty warrior himself, but then he was always assisted by Lord Krishna and in some sense that takes away the sheen from this otherwise marvelous character.For me, when it comes to choosing my favorite character in Mahabharata, it comes down to either Lord Krishna or Karna, and its not very difficult to make a choice, for Gods are bound to be great but one seldom comes across great humans. Rakhi – Krishna and Draupadi. Our audience is familiar with the popular version of the story in which Draupadi rejects Karna. Krishna called Draupadi Sakhi (a she-friend) and she called him Sakha (a friend who happens to be a male). To which Krishna replies: "Arjuna, you have Hanuman - who has the strength to hold the entire world if he so wishes on your chariot and you have me, who burdens the entire Universe and if Karna can dislodge both of us combined by a few inches, imagine what would have happened to you, had we not been here!" There are no reports of Dhritarashtra having been bad administrator or his sons being bad either prior to arrival of Pandavas, are there? Duryodhan commanded that respect.Kunti abandoned her child, and still did not have guts to accept him back. - This is not only to show Karna's true strength, it is also a lesson to Arjuna in the art of appreciating true strength's of the opponent. Moreover he liked Karna.Karna is praised many times by Lord Krishna. I have intruded a lot on your generosity and thnak you for that .. [:)] ...Let me assure you that , I havent written this in view of a confrontation , merely putting doen my thoughts .. You must read the 'Mrutyunjay', then you will know why Karna did so? The village is named KONDAL, Mayiladuthurai Taluk, Nagapattinam District, Nidur P.O, Tamil Nadu. Karna was a noble soul who became victim of circumstances. They do not want to mess with it for the sake of authenticity. http://blog.thitherwards.com/draupadi/ Draupadi Amman Thunai - May you all be BLESSED by HER grace!! Why do you think it to be so? He regretted the moment he said it...at the moment..karna was a much bigger victim than draupadi herself. Does Draupadi rejects Karna saying that Karna is a Sutaputra? (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. Now again a question arises that if this is the case that why all the popular versions of Mahabharata & T.V. She was born to assist Lord Krishna to destroy all the arrogant Kings. 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. She also asked Krishna why Krishna did not tell her as he knew everything, Krishna told her as it was destined for her. Karna indeed will be remembered as a tragic hero. Latter you came to know that woman who rejected you became the wife of five husbands... How you will feel. O Duhsasana, seize the garments of the Pandavas and the robes of Draupadi and hand them over to Sakuni". Like Pranav pointed out, Karna was ready give everything away.

Vishnu Sitaram Sukthankar, General Editor of BORI disclosed that Draupadi’s rejection was found only in 6 out of 1259 Sanskrit manuscripts. 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 !! कर्ण = Karna I only see a whore of the lowest category sharing her bed with 5 slaves ." Under this 'Upkar' of Duryodhana he remained loyal to him. i agree with you CK, people do fail to see the injustice he served on otehrs - but why i admire him is not ocz he is fault less or he is right - but coz he had teh spirit to fight, to back his friend when he knew that he will never succeed - who on his right mind will think that he have got a chance againist krishna? Draupadi Cheer Haran, Lord Krishana did not save Draupadi from Cheer Haran. I guess the term ' Bhikshaa' was a complement to Draupadi ..!!! He did not ignore Draupadi. Note that Pandu did not give similar share to his blind brother before. Thus the popular story that in which “Draupadi rejects Karna” is later added to the narrative. bro u told about the insult of Draupati but what about the insult which Karna faced in the Swyamvar of Draupati..She insulted him in front of everyone there...the thing which Karna did was wrong too...but it was the result of what Drauati did...n wht abt the insult which Karna faced by Arjun,Bheem,Drona,Bhishma,etc but only Duroydhan was there wid him (i know that he was like dat becoz Karnaa's friendship would be beneficial for him..but he was there wid him)...n Karna never cheated anyone..always kept his promise.

Who is the HERO of the Mahabharata ? He just kept quiet and sulked. what he said then was his downfall and a word of frustration of really angry man. 5:10. When Karna asks Arjuna to follow the rules of war and wait till he gets the wheels out of the ground, Krishna counsels Arjuna to ignore it and deliver the death blow because Karna himself never followed those rules when Abhimanyu was killed (who just conveniently happens to be Arjuna's son).One thing everyone forgets is, in the entire history of epics, Mahabharata is the only instance where divinity bows to humanity (Krishna literally asks Karna for forgiveness for all the travails he caused him). I know anyone can justify this ..saying that it was the prevalent norms and so on .. The so called Jambu - Folktale has it’s own story of evolution. Right thing should have been accepting her as wife, and then doing "tyag/renunciation" for Arjun so that she remained respected in the society. Why he did not take the efforts to create a knowledge databank consisting of written scriptures, astrological texts to disseminate his knowledge and illuminate the hungry minds. It is none of them .

He had all the qualities of all pandavas combined. People do charity to gain back anything in return. So you see, Draupadi was considered as nothing but a pawn by someone who ought to have been her father .2. Many people compare Krishna and Karna, in Mahabharata and quickly choose the side of Karna.

Karna, the noble one, the virtuous one, the charitable one, the son of the Sun God himself, had a life which seemed to be one long suffering. He gave milk to Ashwasthama as his parents were giving flour mix water as a milk to him due to their poor financial conditions, only he recognised true qualities of Karna and made him king despite his low birth. We say Pandavas are on dharma side because they won the battle. Draupadi had a servant named Nitambini. Cant she choose who she wants to marry? Karna epitomized loyalty and generosity. The Pandavas arrived at the Swayamwar dressed as Brahmins and Arjuna won the hand of the bride by fulfilling the archery contest which renowned men there lost. Legend has it that In Every Age of Man (Yugs), when the human race had foregone its virtues and given in to desire and greed, the Gods bring in havoc and pave way for a new age of Man. Karna always knew that the Pandavas would win the war of Kurukshetra. Not only did Krishna offer the throne to Karna, but he also made it clear that Draupadi, as the wife of the Pandavas, would be Karna’s wife also! was karnan is in his right mind? Well in all of the people there, only Karna was the one who stood up to help Draupadi, but she couldnt say a word to him and he misinterpreted this. Bheem? In my opinion, it could have been two things:1) Karna's life was a test. In Tamil there is a movie called Karnan acted by the indomitable Shivaji Ganesan. i agree to some gentleman who said vishnu did the balancing act.. i mean he made sure the universe had a balance of good and evil. like amba,ambika,ambalika why they arrange competition in swayamwar this is like I keeping conpetition and give you the kohinoor diamond if you win that,when you in the chance of nearly win I stoped the competition in afraid and say your clothes is not good so I will not allow you to win the kohinoor what a justice.

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 ).. And I have no wish to become the king. 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. Even Yudhistra never stopped his brothers from insulting Karan when he was supposed to be dharmaraj. Thanks & do comment in case you see any discrepancy, These are just my understanding and I could be wrong. The killing of Abhimanyu was trecaherous !!
