Incidents that took place in Mahabharat ©  Kshitij Gaurav
Jayadratha slain(post Abhimanyu’s assassination)-
When the pandavas confronted Kauravas in the battlefield of Kurukshetra,it was the day Arjun was determined to slay off his enemy Jayadratha,who had brutally killed Arjuns young son Abhimanyu.When both sides got exhausted in the battle,Duryodhan and others sighed a relief and gained confidence.But Lord Krishna knew about their approach and used his stratagem and hid the noon sun amongst the clouds,thus creating a darkness all around,signaling that it was evening time and the war should be stopped.Arjun,who had taken an oath to slay off Jayadratha before the completion of the days battle was broken in complete disarray and grief on the sight of evening.The enemy camp rejoiced at this and were making a mock of Arjun.Jayadratha,who was hiding behind a shield of men,too rejoiced at this and came out making a merry of the situation of him still being alive.Just then, Lord Krishna used his stratagem once again and cleverly brought the sun back and thus encouraging Arjun that the noon is still in progress and the is not yet over.Duryodhan and other’s were stunned at what was happening.Fear took its toll on Jayadratha and he was trembling at the sight of Arjun in his chariot.He tried to run away and just then Arjun used his divine “Gandiva”,thus shooting an arrow, killed Jayadratha,thus avenging his loss.
Abhimanyu was the brave son of his father Arjun.When,during the ongoing battle Arjun and Lord Krishna moved towards the northern part of the battle,Yudhistira and others in the pandava camp were left all alone to handle the rest of the enemy.Only Satyaki and Dhristyadhumna were the the other support to them.The Kauravas had built a strong lotus formation of their army(Kamal vyuha),so that its impossible for the pandavas to approach them any further.Only Arjun in the Pandava’s camp knew the crack of this formation,but he was away alongwith his charioteer Lord Krishna,at the northern battlefield. Yudhistira then called Arjun’s young son Abhimanyu and requested him that since Abhimanyu was taught by Arjun how to break the Lotus formation,he should march forward and help the Pandava’s in their hour of need.Abhimanyu obediently accepted his uncle’s request but expressed a little concern in doing so.His concern was that he was only taught how to break the formation,but not on how to come out of it & if he was trapped in it,what should do?.These were the doubts expressed by Abhimanyu to his uncle Yudhistira. Yudhistira comforted his nephew by assuring him that he and others in the Pandava camp would follow Abhimanyu at his back closely so that no trouble could arise for Abhimanyu.Abhimanyu sought benedictions of his uncles and Lord Krishna and proceeded forward with his chariot to the enemy camps’ formation.His charioteer with this approach of Abhimanyu,but warned him that this could turn fatal for Abhimanyu for he was too young for such a colossal battle.Abhimanyu portrayed confidence and assurance to his charioteer and told him that he was not fearful of any danger or even death,since he was the son of great warrior and possessed the wisdom of Lord Krishna
& thus asked his charioteer to just carry on his chariot towards the enemy.And so did the charioteer of Abhimanyu.Abhimanyu caused immense trembles in the Kaurava camp.He single-handedly killed many valiant kaurava warriors on his way.Fearing his loss at the disposal of a young Abhimanyu,Duryodhan plotted a wicked conspiracy yo eliminate Abhimanyu.He signalled Karna to attack from behind and so did Karna,bringing down Abhimanyu's chariot.This was orchestrated by a series of attacks on Abhimanyu by seven Kaurava warriors including Duryodhan,Dusshasana,Karna,Kritvarma,Kripacharya,Ashwatthama,Uncle Shakuni,and others.This was done against rules of thw war as set before the war,but it meant a little to Duryodhan who was on a wrong path and became an epitome of dishonesty.Thus,the valiant son of Arjun,Abhimanyu,died on the battlefied succumbing to this ghastly attack.
