After seeing Jayadrata killed, Kripa and Ashvatthama attacked Arjuna. But he repulsed both and made Kripa fall unconscious. Though he was gentle in his defence many of his arrows wounded Kripa. Eventually both had to flee #Kurukshetra #Day14
Arjuna gives into to guilt seeing Kripa wounded so badly by his oen arrows. He then sees Karna attacking Satyaki. He tells Krishna to lead him yo Karna so that Satyaki who is fatigued, could be protected. Krishna disagrees #Kurukshetra #Day14
By now, the Upa Pandavas have come to Satyaki's aid. Krishna tells Arjuna that between them thry can manage Karna. As Karna was still in possession of Vasava Shakti, Krishna does not want Arjuna to face Karna then. #Kurukshetra #Day14.

Dushasana rushes at Abhimanyu assuring Duryodhana that he will kill the son of Su hadra which would distress Krishna and Arjuna so much that they woukd due of grief and that in turn would make the enemy retreat forever. By then Abhimanyu had been mangled by arrows. #Kurukshetra
Yet, the sight of Duhshasana reminded him of the wrongs his father, uncle and step mother had faced. He decided to kill Duhshasana for Bhima and fought. His shower of arrows made Duhshasana swoon and the charioteer drove away to safety. #Kurukshetra
Exhilarated at Abhimanyu's victory, the Pandava host began to cheer aloud and fight with renewed vigour. This agitated Duryodhana and he sent Karna again. Karna began a fresh attack. But Abhimanyu broke his bow and flag. Karna's brother intervened. #Kurukshetra

Started a fun project of mine today. Recording the duels of Kurukshetra war in an excel sheet in anticipation of some interesting pattern. Watch this space for interesting tidbits. Full exercise may take quite a while
Interesting Results! #Kurukshatra #Analytics. So many duels without a declared result on Day One
Could record two general battles and 26 duels on Day One. Only 6 of those duels ended decisively. Pandava side suffered horribly in the hands of Bhishma. Uttara killed in the hands of Shalya. Saving grace being Abhimanyu countering Bhishma and winning over Brihadbala #Kurukshetra

यदा यदा हि धर्मस्य ग्लानिर्भवति भारत ।
अभ्युत्थानमधर्मस्य तदात्मानं सृजाम्यहम्
परित्राणाय साधूनां विनाशाय च दुष्कृताम् ।
धर्मसंस्थापनार्थाय सम्भवामि युगे युगे
