Chapter 69 Mankind’s Biggest War Sixth Day

For the fight on the sixth day, Dhrishtadyumna arranged the Pandava army in makara (fish) formation in accordance with Yudhishthira’s directive. The Kaurava army was arranged in heron formation, or krauncha.

We are aware of the comparable names that physical activity, asanas, or postures have received. Battle array was most often referred as as Vyuha. Which Vyuha was ideal for a given situation based on the demands of the day’s offensive and defensive strategy.

In accordance with the circumstances as they periodically changed, decisions were made on the size, make-up, and places of the forces deployed.
A massive massacre occurred on the sixth day, even in the early hours of the morning. After Drona’s charioteer was murdered, Drona seized control of the horses by himself while also firing his bow. He caused enormous devastation. He moved amid the cotton piles like a flame.

The formations of both forces were quickly destroyed, and ferocious battle continued. The field was covered in the corpses of warriors, elephants, horses, and other animals as well as the wreckage of chariots as blood poured in rivers.

In order to locate and kill Duryodhana’s brothers, Bhimasena broke through the enemy’s lines. For their part, they rushed towards him in a coordinated attack from all sides instead of waiting to be found. Duhsasana, Durvishaha, Durmata, Jaya, Jayatsena, Vikarna, Chitrasena, Sudarsana, Charuchitra, Suvarma, Dushkarna, and others all assaulted him at the same time.

Bhimasena got up and engaged them all despite having no concept of fear. They wanted to capture him so they could all be instantly killed by him.
The conflict was intense, like the earlier conflict between the gods and asuras. The son of Pandu abruptly lost patience and leaped from his chariot, his mace in hand, and proceeded to run directly on foot toward the sons of Dhritarashtra in order to kill them.

Dhrishtadyumna was worried and hurried to avert tragedy when he noticed Bhima’s chariot vanishing in the enemy lines. When he got to Bhima’s automobile, he saw that just the charioteer was inside and that Bhima was not. Where is Bhima dearer to me than life, Visoka? he cried out to the charioteer.

Naturally, Dhrishtadyumna believed Bhima had fallen.

Visoka bowed and addressed the son of Drupada, saying, “The son of Pandu requested me to stay here and raced forth on foot, mace in hand, into the enemy ranks without waiting for my reply.”

Dhrishtadyumna drove his chariot through the enemy lines in pursuit of Bhimasena, whose route was indicated by the remains of dead elephants, out of fear that Bhima would be conquered and murdered. When Dhrishtadyumna saw Bhima, he discovered him surrounded by foes engaged in battle from their chariots. With a mace in his hand and burns all over him, Bhima faced them all.

He was given an embrace by Dhrishtadyumna, who then placed him in his chariot and began to remove the shafts that had been lodged in his body. Now, instead of waiting for them to fight or challenge, Duryodhana ordered his men to attack Bhimasena and Dhrishtadyumna. They therefore coordinated their attacks even though they had no desire to continue the conflict. Dhrishtadyumna possessed a hidden weapon that he had acquired from Dronacharya, and when he used it, it rendered the opposing armies helpless. However, Duryodhana later entered the conflict and unleashed weapons in response to Dhrishtadyumna’s weapons of stupor. At that precise moment, Yudhishthira’s reinforcements showed up.

Twelve chariots and their entourage arrived on the scene under the command of Abhimanyu to reinforce Bhima.

When he noticed this, Dhrishtadyumna felt a profound sense of relief. By this time, Bhimasena had also slept and was prepared to resume the battle. He boarded Kekaya’s chariot and took his place with the others.

But that day, Drona was dreadful. He slashed Dhrishtadyumna’s chariot and killed the charioteer and horses, forcing Drupada’s son to seek refuge in Abhimanyu’s vehicle. The Kaurava troops praised Drona as the Pandava forces started to falter.

On that day, there was indiscriminate mass violence and killing. Bhima and Duryodhana once had a face-to-face encounter. Following the customary heated discussion, there was a fierce archery duel.

Duryodhana was struck and knocked out. He was skillfully freed by Kripa, who then drove him off in his own chariot. Now that Bhishma had personally arrived, he took the initiative in the battle and dispersed the Pandava soldiers.

Even though the sun was setting, the conflict raged on for another hour. Many people died in the violent combat. The day’s conflict ended at that point.
Yudhishthira rejoiced that Dhrishtadyumna and Bhima had survived their journey back to camp.
