Chapter 70 Mankind’s Biggest War Seventh Day

Duryodhana went to Bhishma while severely injured and in pain, saying: “T “Every day, there had been a struggle against us. Our lines of defence are disintegrating, and we are losing a lot of fighters. You are seeing inaction.”

The grandsire comforted Duryodhana by saying, “W “Why do you allow yourself to get dejected? All of us are gathered here: Drona, Salya, Kritavarma, Aswatthama, Vikarna, Bhagadatta, Sakuni, the two Avanti brothers, the Trigarta chief, the king of Magadha, and Kripacharya. Why should you feel depressed when these mighty warriors are here and willing to sacrifice their lives for you? Get rid of this negative attitude.”

After saying this, he gave the day’s instructions.

The grandsire said to Duryodhana, “See there.” “All of these armed foot warriors from many kingdoms, together with thousands of automobiles, horses, and horsemen, large war elephants, and other vehicles, are prepared to battle for you. Even the gods are no match for this magnificent army. Be at ease.”
He provided a healing ointment for his wounds to the sad Duryodhana in order to cheer him up. It soothed Duryodhana as he massaged it on his multiple wounds.

Encouraged by the grandsire’s words of assurance, he headed to the field. On that day, the troops was arranged in a circle. Seven fully prepared chariots were towed by every battle elephant.

Seven horsemen rode in support of each chariot. Ten shield bearers were assigned to each horseman. Armor was worn by everybody.
Indra-like radiant, Duryodhana commanded this vast and well-equipped army from the middle. The Pandava army was organised into vajravyuha by

Yudhishthira. The conflict on this day was violently fought simultaneously in several sectors. Arjuna’s attacks were personally resisted by Bhishma. At another occasion, Drona and Virata were conversing. At another section, Sikhandin and Aswatthama engaged in a fierce combat.

At another moment, Duryodhana and Dhrishtadyumna clashed with one another.

Uncle Salya was assaulted by Nakula and Sahadeva. Yudhamanyu was opposed by the Avanti kings, while Kritavarma, Chitrasena, Vikarna, and Durmarsha were opposed by Bhimasena. Between Ghatotkacha and Bhagadatta, Alambasa and Satyaki, Bhurisravas and Dhrishtaketu, Yudhishthira and Srutayu, and Chekitana and Kripa, there were fierce wars.

After losing his own chariot, horses, and charioteer in the fight between Drona and Virata, the latter was victorious and forced to board Sanga’s chariot.
The first day’s combat claimed the lives of Uttara and Sveta, two of Virata’s sons. Sanga was also killed on this seventh day, just as his father approached his side. Aswatthama beat Drupada’s son Sikhandin.

When his chariot was destroyed, he leaped out and stood with his sword and shield.

Aswatthama struck his sword with his shaft, shattering it. Aswatthama’s arrow blocked Sikhandin’s attempt to twirl the shattered blade and fling it at him with great power.

After suffering severe injuries, Sikhandin boarded Satyaki’s chariot and fled. Initially, Satyaki had the upper hand in the struggle with Alambasa, but she subsequently regained the upper hand, forcing Alambasa to leave.

Duryodhana’s horses were killed during the fight between him and Dhrishtadyumna, forcing him to leave his chariot. However, he kept fighting while holding his sword. The prince was subsequently taken away by Sakuni on his chariot.

Kritavarma attacked Bhima hard, but he was defeated. He lost his chariot and horses, admitted defeat, and fled in the direction of Sakuni’s vehicle as Bhima’s arrows stuck all over him, giving the impression that he was a porcupine rushing through the jungle. Yudhamanyu vanquished Vinda and Anuvinda of Avanti, and their troops were utterly decimated. Ghatotkacha was assaulted by Bhagadatta, who also drove away all of his allies. However, Ghatotkacha stood alone and battled valiantly. But in the end, he was forced to flee as well, which delighted the entire Kaurava army.

Attacks by Salya on his nephews continued. Because his horses were destroyed, Nakula was forced to ride beside his brother in his chariot. Both resumed the battle from the same automobile. Salya swooned after being struck by Sahadeva’s arrow. Salya was saved by the charioteer’s deft manoeuvring of the vehicle.

Duryodhana’s army lost heart when the Madra king (Salya) was seen fleeing the battlefield, and the twin sons of Madri blew their conches in victory. They took advantage of the circumstance and dealt Salya’s soldiers significant harm.

Yudhishthira launched an assault against Srutayu around midday. Dharmaputra’s missiles were deflected by the latter’s carefully targeted arrows, piercing his armour and leaving him critically injured. Then, in a fit of rage, Yudhishthira launched a powerful arrow that penetrated Srutayu’s breastplate.

Yudhishthira was not his usual self on that day; he was enraged.

Srutayu was forced to leave the battle on foot when his charioteer, horses, and chariot were all dead. The demoralisation of Duryodhana’s troops was now complete. Having lost his chariot and charioteer during the assault on Kripa, Chekitana dismounted, assaulted Kripa’s charioteer and horses with a mace, and killed them.

Kripa descended as well, and while seated on the ground, he shot his arrows. Chekitana was severely damaged. He then spun his mace and threw it at Kripacharya, who was able to deflect it with an arrow of his own.

They then exchanged swords as they drew near to one another. Both were hurt and had already collapsed to the ground when Bhima arrived and picked up Chekitana in his chariot. In a similar manner, Sakuni drove Kripa’s injured body away.

Dhrishtaketu’s dozens of arrows pierced Bhurisravas. The arrows that were all lodged in the big warrior’s breastplate shined brightly around his brilliant face, and he was like a sun radiating brilliance. Even so, he forced Dhrishtaketu to concede defeat and give up. As Bhima had pledged to kill them, three of Duryodhana’s brothers assaulted Abhimanyu, who dealt them a severe defeat but saved their lives. Bhishma then launched an assault on Abhimanyu.

When Arjuna noticed this, he commanded Krishna to drive the chariot toward Bhishma.

The other Pandavas soon followed Arjuna at that point. The battle was put on hold for the day as the grandsire was able to hold his own against all five until dusk. Weary and injured, the soldiers on both sides retreated to their tents to recover and have their wounds treated.
After then, gentle music was played for an hour to lull the soldiers to sleep.

The Vyasa revealed that not a single word about violence or hatred was spoken throughout that hour. It was a joyful sight to witness an hour of perfect delight. Here, the Mahabharata’s main message is clear to see.
