Kauravas

Started the second and third part of “Pandavar Poomi” by Vali on 6-4-2014.
Just recording this date to know how long I will take to complete reading this book. (Self talk)

——————————————————————

I am posting these days about the birth of some characters in the epic “Mahabharatha”
Shall tell something about Kauravas birth today.

Gandhari was envious.

Who is not envious?

When she hears that Kunti is blessed with Yudhistra.. she feels jealous. Her pregnancy continues even after 10 months. The epic says that her pregnancy lasted for 24 months. In her anxiety and anger she bangs her belly and only a ball of flesh is out. But Sage Vyasa had blessed her with 100 sons. He says that his blessing will not go wrong.
He splits the flesh ball into 100 pieces and the remnant as one piece.
The flesh is stored in jars with ghee and the birth of Kauravas and their sister came out from the jars. eerie birth of Kauravas Isn’t? I have the 100 names of the Kauravas here. (thanks Wikipedia)
