Mahabharata: Unknown Stories of Characters of Mahabharata (Part 4)
Bhishma in the battle of Korokshtra….
In the fierce battle of Korkshatra, Bhishma was the supreme commander of the Corpora army for ten days. He failed to do so. Bhishma was the most powerful warrior of his time and history. He gained his ability and unstoppable power by becoming the son of the holy Ganga and the son of Lord Parashurama. Despite being almost five generations old, Bhishma was so powerful that any fighter defeated him at that time. Every day, he killed at least 10,000 soldiers and a thousand chariots. At the beginning of the war, Bhishma vowed not to kill any of the pandas because they were his uncles. Daroga Sadhana often confronts Bhishma and alleges that he is not fighting for the Korva camp because he will not kill any Pandavas. He did not allow any Kovis to be killed in battle, because he liked all his nephews and wanted peace talks.
When the Kauravas were losing the battle, Duryodhana approached Bhishma one night and accused him that he was not fighting the war with all his strength due to his affection for the Pandavas. Bhishma was very angry, immediately picked up the five golden arrows and chanted the mantras saying, “Tomorrow I will kill the Pandavas with these five golden arrows.” Duryodhana, not believing Bhishma’s words, means to Bhishma that he gives five golden arrows, he will keep them with him and return them the next morning.
A long time ago, when the Pandavas were living in the forest, Duryodhana once came to the woods to overcome his physical misery unlike his Pandavas, who were living in exile due to the wicked destruction of their kingdom. Thus he Was exhibiting venom and hubris. They kept their camp across a pond where the Pandavas lived. Once, while he was bathing in that pond, the late princes, named Gandharvas, came to bathe.

Duryodhana could not bear it; He had a quarrel in which the Gandharvas captured him. At Yudhishthira’s request, Arjuna rescues Duryodhana and frees him. Duryodhana was ashamed, but being a Kshatriya, he asked Arjuna what or what boon he needed. Arjuna replies that he will ask for a benefit later when he needs it.
It was during that night when Krishna reminded Arjuna of his disgruntled boon and asked him to go to Duryodhana and ask for five golden arrows. When Arjuna came and asked for the five golden rings, Duryodhana was shocked, but knowing his honour and duty as a Kshatriya well, “I will give you five golden arrows.” But can you tell me who told the five golden fake arrows that first came into existence? “Arjun smilingly replied,” Who else could have given me advice other than Shri Krishna? ” Later, Duryodhana spoke respectfully and gave Bhishma five golden arrows bearing the penance and power of a lifetime. Later, Duryodhana broke his usual way and admitted himself privately, “All the sages say that Krishna is the supreme God, perhaps they are right.” Surprised and convinced of the existence of five golden arrows by Arjuna, Duryodhana secretly rose to his knees and offered a quick prayer to Krishna.
Duryodhana again went to Bhishma, informed him of all this and requested another five gold-made arrows. To this, Bhishma replied with a laugh, “It is not possible, child. The will of God is supreme and unquestionable. I have already done austerities in the qualities of my life and those five arrows, which are sufficient power to end all the five Pandavas. However, Krishna, is the supreme God, knowing this past, present, and future, as he alone did, and voluntarily arranged for the five golden arrows with the power and power of my life-long penance. Is. After spending all the virtues of my punishment, I cannot move another five arrows. However, tomorrow I will fight like a lion, and this time, I will either kill Arjuna or break my promise to Lord Krishna not to take any weapon during the war. The next day, a fierce battle ensued between Bhishma and Arjuna. Although Arjuna was mighty, he had no match for Bhishma. Bhishma soon shot arrows that cut Arjuna’s armour and then his Gandiv bow. Arjuna was helpless before the wrath of grandchildren.
As Bhishma was about to kill Arjuna with his arrows, Lord Krishna threw the chariot down and jumped from the chariot into the battlefield, picked up the wheel of a chariot and charged Bhishma. Arjuna tried to stop Lord Krishna, but Prabhu said, “To protect my devotee, I should break my word.” However, it is a double entrance. Krishna, who was a perfect yogi and in control of the senses including anger, raised the wheel of the chariot to honour and uphold Bhishma’s promise and promise, as he later promised that he would make Krishna a yielding weapon.
Eventually, however, Arjuna persuades Krishna to return to the chariot and sets the wheel down, promising to double his determination in the fight. When Bhishma woke up from the wrath of God and stood with tearful palms and tears in his eyes, looking into his eyes with the intense love he had towards his friends, the great was that they censorship of ignorant, foolish men. Are you willing to bear.
Thus the war ended in a stalemate. As the Pandavas considered this situation, Krishna requested him to go to Bhishma himself and suggest a way to get out of this deadlock. Bhishma loved the Pandavas and knew that he was standing as an obstacle in their path to victory and so when they went to Bhishma, he gave them hints as to how they could defeat him. He told them that if ever a person of the opposite sex was confronted, he would close his arms and not fight.
Later Krishna tells Arjuna how he can bring Bhishma down with the help of Shikhandi. The Pandavas did not agree to such an agreement, as they would not follow the path of religion using such tactics, but Krishna suggested a smart alternative. And thus, the next day, on the tenth day of the battle Shikhandi arrives on the latter’s chariot with Arjuna and he encounters Bhishma who did not shoot arrows at Shikhandi. He was then plunged into battle by Arjuna, pierced by innumerable arrows. With Bhishma in front, Bhishma did not look towards that direction, Arjun shot arrows at Bhishma, which shattered his entire body. Thus, as already decided (Mahadev’s boon for Amba that she would cause Bhishma’s death) Shikhandi, i.e. Amba rebirth, caused Bhishma’s downfall. As Bhishma fell, his entire body was placed on the ground with the cover of Arjuna’s arrows, which came out of his back, and between his arms and legs. Seeing Bhishma lying on such a bed of arrows, the gods also revered who saw from the sky. He silently blessed the mighty warrior. When the young princes of both armies gathered around him, inquiring if anything could happen, he told them that when his body lay on a bed of arrows above the ground, his head was impaired. Hearing this, several princes from both the Kauravas and the Pandavas brought her silk and velvet pillows, but she refused them. He asks Arjuna to give him a cushion for a warrior. Arjuna then took out three arrows from his quiver and placed them under Bhishma’s head, which was upwards towards the pointed arrow. To quench the thirst of a war-thirsty man, Arjuna shot a pointer to the earth and a jet stream of water rose and went into Bhishma’s mouth. It is said that Ganga herself arose to quench her son’s thirst.
