Mahabharat Chapter 11 How Bhima was Poisoned

Chapter 11 How Bhima was Poisoned

At Hastinapura, the five sons of Pandu and the one hundred sons of Dhritarashtra grew up in joy and good times. Bhima was the strongest of them all physically. He used to drag Duryodhana and the other Kauravas by their hair and beat them as a form of bullying.

He was an excellent swimmer and would dive into pools while holding one or more of them helplessly in his arms. He would stay under the water until they were practically drowned. He would stand on the ground and kick at the tree whenever they climbed it, shaking them down like ripe fruits.

Because of Bhima’s practical tricks, the sons of Dhritarashtra would always have bruising on their bodies. It should come as no surprise that the sons of Dhritarashtra had a strong animosity for Bhima from an early age.

The princes matured. They learned archery, how to use weapons, and other skills that princes should know from Kripacharya. Due to his envy of Bhima, Duryodhana engaged in various wrongdoings that clouded his judgement.
Duryodhana was extremely concerned. Pandu was in charge of the realm because his father was blind. Yudhishthira, the heir apparent, would eventually succeed him and rule after his death. Because his blind father was so defenceless, Duryodhana reasoned that he needed to murder Bhima in order to stop Yudhishthira from taking the kingdom.
He prepared to carry out his decision since he believed that Bhima’s passing would weaken the Pandavas’ influence.
Arjuna and Yudhishthira would be detained, Bhima would be thrown into the Ganges, and Duryodhana and his brothers would then take control of the country.

Duryodhana then went swimming in the Ganges with his brothers and the Pandavas.
They slept in their tents after the sports since they were fatigued. Because he had worked harder than the others and because his meal had been tainted, Bhima felt sleepy and laid down beside the river. He was tied with untamed creepers by Duryodhana before being dropped into the river.

Sharp spikes had previously been put there by the demon Duryodhana. This was done on purpose in the hopes that Bhima would fall and impale himself on the spikes, losing his life. Fortunately, there was no spike where Bhima hit the ground. His body was bit by poisonous water snakes.

Bhima was unharmed since the snake venom balanced the toxic food he had consumed. Soon after, the river swept him to a bank.
Bhima had been thrown into a river that was teeming with venomous snakes and spiked, so Duryodhana assumed that he had perished. He then joyfully returned to the city with the rest of the group. This is how Nagas saved super human Bhima.

Duryodhana told Yudhishthira that Bhima had arrived before them in the city when he asked where he was.
Yudhishthira asked his mother if Bhima had come home after Duryodhana told him he believed him.
The answer to his worried query—that Bhima had not yet arrived—led to Yudhishthira’s suspicion of his brother’s involvement in some sort of criminal activity. He then returned to the forest with his brothers and combed the area thoroughly. But Bhima was nowhere to be seen. They returned with deep grief.

Bhima woke up later and went drowsily back home. He was welcomed and hugged by Kunti and Yudhishthira with tremendous enthusiasm. Bhima was more powerful than before as a result of the poison that had entered his body.
Kunti sent for Vidura and whispered to him: “D “Ryodhana is a vile and vicious person. He wants to dominate the country, hence he intends to assassinate Bhima. I’m concerned.”

Vidura answered: “Although what you say is accurate, keep your opinions to yourself.
Because if the evil Duryodhana is accused or held accountable, his rage and wrath would only grow. Your sons have the good fortune of lengthy lives. You don’t need to be afraid on that account.”
Additionally cautioning Bhima, Yudhishthira said: “Keep quiet about the situation.
In the future, we must exercise caution, provide a hand to one another, and safeguard ourselves.”
When Bhima resurfaced, Duryodhana was taken aback. His resentment and anger grew. He let forth a protracted sigh of despair.
