Chapter 72 Mankind’s Biggest War Ninth Day

Duryodhana was secretly with the grandsire on the morning of the ninth day, before to the start of the fight. He expressed his vehement displeasure with the direction the war was taking. The grandsire was deeply hurt by his words, which were like jagged spears, yet he was patient and responded somberly: “I’m pouring down my life for you like ghee on the altar of sacrifice. Why do you want to make me seem bad after I’ve been working so hard for you? You speak as though you lack insight and don’t know what is right and wrong. They claim that a man sees the tree as if it were made of gold when he is on the verge of death.

You no longer see things as they actually are. You can’t see clearly. You intentionally sowed the seeds of hatred, and now you are receiving the rewards. The greatest thing you can do is to keep fighting as hard as you can. Also, this is the obvious course of duty. I can never lift my hand against a woman, thus I am unable to fight Sikhandin. I also can’t murder the Pandavas with my hands since my mind rebels against it. With the exception of these two, I will take on all of your enemies and battle. Losing heart doesn’t accomplish anything. No matter what happens, if you fight the way a kshatriya should, honour will be yours.”

After telling Duryodhana this and encouraging him with sage and kind words, Bhishma then gave orders for assembling the army for the day’s combat.
Duryodhana felt encouraged. To Duhsasana, whom he sent, he said: “Brother, let’s give this fight everything we’ve got. The grandsire, in my opinion, is fervently supporting our cause. He claims he can only use his weapons against Sikhandin. Because you know, even a wild dog may kill a lion if the latter scorns to defend itself, we need take care to ensure that he is not exposed to Sikhandin’s assaults.”

The conflict between Abhimanyu and Alambasa was intense. Abhimanyu proved that his bravery matched that of his legendary father. Alambasa had to escape on foot in order to survive.

Satyaki and Aswatthama engaged in violent fight, as did Drona and Arjuna. The grandsire was then assaulted by all of the Pandavas, and Duryodhana despatched Duhsasana to aid the veteran fighter. Bhishma put up a fierce fight and defeated the Pandavas. The Pandava soldiers had completely lost all motivation and were running around aimlessly like lost cattle in the wilderness.

Krishna stopped the chariot and addressed Arjuna, saying: “After waiting for thirteen years, Partha, you and your brothers were eager for today. Kill the grandsire without thinking twice. Keep in mind what a soldier must do.”

Without raising his eyes, Arjuna bowed his head and responded: “I’d much prefer have remained a prisoner in the forest than murder my beloved grandpa and his instructors, but I’ll follow your orders. Keep going.”

The battle was not in Arjuna’s heart. Unwillingly and with considerable mental anguish, he entered the battle. On the other hand, Bhishma scorched like the midday heat.

The army recovered spirit and maintained discipline as it saw Arjuna’s chariot move towards Bhishma. Bhishma’s arrows flew in thick and quick formation, totally obscuring the chariot as it advanced—neither the horses nor the chariots were visible.

Krishna didn’t seem to be bothered and continued to drive carefully and expertly. Bhishma’s bow was repeatedly broken by the shafts that Arjuna fired at it. However, the grandfather kept updating his weapon.

Arjuna, you are not fighting as you should! said Krishna, who then leaped down of the chariot in a fit of wrath and raced over to the grandsire brandishing his discus.

Bhishma observed Vasudeva coming closer. He screamed, “Hail, O Lotus-eyed One!” “I count it a blessing that you have taken my body from me! Come, please!”

Arjuna got out of the chariot, ran after Krishna, caught him, and held him with both of his arms. He screamed, “Krishna, stop!” “Do not renege on your promise. You’ve vowed to refrain from using weapons throughout this conflict. This is what I do. I won’t let you down. I’ll dispatch my arrows and personally assassinate the cherished grandsire. Pray, get in the automobile, and grab the wheel.”

Krishna was returned by Arjuna, and the conflict was restarted. Although the Pandava warriors had been treated cruelly, the battle had come to a conclusion as the sun set in the west.
