Jayadratha’s tragedy by Bhima ~ Mahabharata
Jayadratha’s tragedy by Bhima –Once all the five Pandavas had gone out for necessary work. In the ashram, only Draupadi, one of her maidservants, and the priest were dhomya. At the same time Jayadratha, the king of the Indus country, who was going to Shalva country for want of marriage, left there. Suddenly Draupadi standing at the door of the ashram saw her and he was enchanted by her. He stopped his army there and told his friend Kotikasya – “Kotik! Go and find out who is this beautiful girl? If I find this woman, then why do I need to go to Shalwar country for marriage? ”

On hearing the friend Jayadratha, Kotikasya reached Draupadi and said- “O Kalyani! Who are you? Are you any Apsara or Devakanya? ” Draupadi replied- “I am Draupadi, the wife of the five famous Pandavas. My husband is just about to come, so you people should accept his hospitality and leave from here. You are requested to rest outside the hut till their arrival. I manage your food. ”
Kotikasya went to Jayadratha and introduced Draupadi. On knowing the introduction, Jayadratha went to Draupadi and said- “O Draupadi! You are the wife of those people who move around in the forest and cannot provide you any kind of pleasure. You abandon the Pandavas and marry me and enjoy the kingdom of the entire Indus and Sauber country. ”
Listening to Jayadratha’s words, Draupadi cursed her very much, but Kamandha Jayadradha had no influence on her curse and dragged Draupadi powerfully and seated her in the chariot. When Guru Dhaumya came to protect Draupadi, Jayadratha threw him to the ground there and started driving his chariot from there. Draupadi was mourning in the chariot and Guru Dhaumya ran behind the chariot, calling the Pandavas.
After some time when the Pandavas returned, the weeping maid told them the whole story. Knowing everything, the Pandavas chased Jayadratha and soon surrounded him with his army. There was a fierce war on both sides.
All the brothers and Kotikasya of Jayadratha were killed by the might of Pandavas and his army escaped from the battlefield. Sahadeva captured the chariot of Jayadratha along with Draupadi. Seeing his army running away, Jayadratha himself fled on foot. Leaving Sahadeva, the rest of the Pandavas fled and started chasing Jayadratha.
Bhima and Arjun leaped and surrounded Jayadratha from the front and caught his peak. Then in anger, Bhima slammed him into the earth and repaired it with kick punches. When Jayadratha became half-dead due to Bhima’s attack, Arjun said- “Brother Bheem! Do not kill it, it will be punished by our deeds Yudhishthira. ”
Hearing Arjuna’s words, Bhima folded Jayadratha’s hairstyle with his crescent arrows and put five braids on it and tied it, and presented it to Yudhishthira. Dharmaraja Yudhishthira rebuked Jayadratha and said, “Hey wicked Jayadratha! If we want, we can kill you right now, but we will not do so keeping in mind the legal woe of sister Dushala. Go free you. ” Hearing this, Jayadratha is distressed, bowed his head with shame, and went away.
Going from there into the forest, Jayadratha did severe penance of Lord Shankar. Pleased with his penance, Shankar Ji asked him to ask for the bride. Jayadratha said on this – “God! I ask for the blessing of conquering the five Pandavas in battle. ” On this, Lord Shankar, expressing his inability, said to Jayadratha- “O Jayadratha! The Pandavas are invincible and it is impossible to do so. Sri Krishna is the incarnation of Narayana and Arjuna is the incarnation of ‘Nar’. I have already given Arjuna the bridesmaid of attaining Trilok victory and the Pashupatiastra. Yes, you can definitely repel the remaining Pandavas once in Arjuna’s absence. ” Saying so, Lord Shankar disappeared from there and Mandabuddhi Jayadratha also returned to his kingdom.
