Chapter 86 Yudhishthira Worried While Karna and Bhima Were Fighting

Yudhishthira had been left behind to fend off Drona’s assaults, and Arjuna had gone to keep his promise that Jayadratha would be slain on the battlefield before dusk.

Abhimanyu’s death had primarily been brought on by Jayadratha. He was the one who had successfully stopped the Pandavas from rescuing Abhimanyu, leading to Abhimanyu’s isolation, overpowering, and eventual death. In his fear, Yudhishthira dispatched Satyaki and later Bhima to assist Arjuna in his conflict with Jayadratha. Bhima arrived at the location of Arjuna’s engagement and sounded his simhanada (lion-roar). When Dharmaputra heard Bhima’s lion roar, he realised that Arjuna had been discovered alive.

On the fourteenth day, severe fighting broke out between Satyaki and the Bhurisravas in one area, Bhima and Karna in another, and Arjuna and Jayadratha in a third. At the main front, Drona continued to fight off the Panchalas and Pandavas while directing a counteroffensive against them.

At the point where Arjuna engaged Jayadratha, Duryodhana arrived with his men but was quickly routed. As a result, the conflict raged fiercely and for a long time on several fronts. Each side was vulnerable to danger from behind because to how the forces were positioned.

Drona overheard Duryodhana saying to him, “After treating us with disdain, Arjuna, Bhima, and Satyaki successfully reached Jayadratha’s region and are now heavily pushing the Sindhu monarch. It is really weird that our battle array was destroyed and all of our preparations were fully thwarted while under your leadership. Everyone wonders how the great Drona, who has mastered the science of combat, could have been so miscalculated.
What should I say in response? You have cheated on me.”

Thus, Duryodhana berated Drona once again, to which the latter unperturbedly responded: “Your allegations, Duryodhana, are equally unjustified and untrue. Talking about things that are damaged beyond repair will not benefit anyone. Consider what must be done right away.”

“You are to give me advice, acharya. Let me know what has to be done. Give the challenges of the scenario your best thought before deciding, and let’s move rapidly.” Duryodhana begged, baffled and puzzled.

Drona answered: “The issue is quite serious, my son. Three powerful generals have moved forward and outmaneuvred us. They have just as much cause for concern as we do, though, as their rear is now just as vulnerable to assault. They are not in a safe position since we are on both sides of them. Be encouraged, approach Jayadratha once more, and provide him all the assistance you can. It serves no use to demoralise oneself by reflecting on past setbacks and struggles. It would be better if I stayed here and sent you troops as needed. The Pandava troops and Panchalas must be kept busy here. If not, we will be completely decimated.”

As a result, Duryodhana returned with more troops to the area where Arjuna was aiming his attack against Jayadratha. The account of the fourteenth day of battle at Kurukshetra demonstrates that wheeling and encircling operations, which are common in modern warfare, were not unknown during the Mahabharata era.

Even back then, it appears that the benefits and hazards of such an approach were clearly appreciated and addressed. The flanking manoeuvres of Arjuna considerably puzzled his adversaries. The account of the conflict between Bhima and Karna on that particular day seems a lot like a section from a book about a contemporary conflict.

Karna was not someone Bhima wanted to fight or argue with for very long. He was anxious to go to Arjuna’s location. Radheya, however, would in no way let him do this. He stopped Bhimasena from moving forward by shooting him with his arrows. Between the two fighters, there was a clear contrast.

When Karna attacked Bhima, he had a charming lotus-like face that was beaming with smiles and said things like, “Do not reveal your back,” “Now, do not escape like a coward,” and other things.

When he was ridiculed in this way, Bhima was furious. The grins of Karna enraged him. While Bhima’s face was glowing with wrath and his actions were ferocious, Karna handled the combat with a relaxed smile. Bhima would ignore the arrows and javelins that were raining down heavily on him and constantly attempt to close with Karna while Karna would maintain his distance and hurl his well-aimed shafts. While Bhimasena fussed and worried impatiently as he displayed his incredible strength of limb, Radheya carried out each task with serenity and grace.

Bhima resembled an Asoka tree in full bloom because of his redness and numerous bleeding wounds. He didn’t care about them, though, as he struck Karna, splitting his bows in two and destroying his chariot. There was no grin on Karna’s face as he had to sprint for a new chariot. He assaulted Bhima because his fury erupted within him like the sea on a full moon day. Both displayed the might of tigers and the swiftness of eagles, and their rage had now turned into the fury of serpents.

Bhima battled valiantly, giving little thought to his own life, recalling all the slights and injuries that he, his brothers, and Draupadi had experienced.
The two vehicles collided, and Bhimasena’s black horses and Karna’s milk-white horses jostled for position like clouds in a tempest. Karna’s charioteer shook and collapsed when his bow was broken. Then, Karna threw Bhima a javelin. Karna had picked up a new bow, but Bhima parried it and kept firing arrows at him. Karna continually lost control of his chariot. Karna was in trouble, so Duryodhana called his brother Durjaya and said: “Karna will be killed by this evil Pandava. Attack Bhima right now to save Karna’s life.”

Durjaya obeyed orders and attacked Bhima, who was furious and fired seven shafts that sent Durjaya’s horses and charioteer to Yama’s home. and Durjaya himself suffered a fatal injury.

Karna was overcome with sadness at seeing the hero’s bleeding body writhing on the ground like a wounded snake and circled the hero, paying sombre homage to the deceased.

Bhima persisted in the altercation and severely tormented Karna while doing so. Karna had to look for a new chariot once more. He fired well-aimed arrows that struck Bhima, who then threw his mace at Karna in a fit of rage. The mace slammed into Karna’s chariot, killing the charioteer and the horses and shattering the flagstaff. Karna was now erect on the floor, his bow bowed.

Now, Duryodhana dispatched a different brother to replace Karna. Durmukha proceeded as instructed and rode Karna on his chariot. When Bhima saw that yet another son of Dhritarashtra had come to beg for death, he licked his lips with glee and launched nine arrows at the stranger. Durmukha’s armour was shattered, and he collapsed motionless even as Karna rose to take his place in the chariot.

Karna was once again overcome with anguish and remained still for a time when he saw the warrior covered in blood and laying dead at his side. Karna was continually under attack by Bhima. Karna was hurt after one of his arrows penetrated his armour. However, he too immediately countered the strike and severely hurt Bhima.

The Pandava persisted and launched a fierce attack on Karna. Karna couldn’t stand seeing so many of Duryodhana’s brothers die one after another for him.
This, together with the discomfort from his own injuries, caused him to lose courage, and he defeatedly turned away. He could not tolerate it, though, and went back to the fighting as Bhima rose up on the battlefield, his body covered in scorching fire-like wounds.
