Karna’s speech to kuru warriors


This is based on K M ganguli translation of mahabharat

After bheesma’s fall , all the kaurava warriors lost their confidence and had no hopes of victory, Then karna who vowed that he will not fight until bheesma’s fall  comes to the battle field for the first time .He was like a boat for the kaurava warrior who were drowning in the sea of arjuna’s arrows.Karna becomes their saviour and gives the speech which gives them confidence and they march fearlessly to the battle field on the 11th day.In this speech first karna grieves for bheesma’s fall ,gives confidence for the warriors and finally he gets ready for the battle

Karna says  ” In this  world everything is continually moving towards the jaws of Death. Thinking of this, I regard everything as ephemeral (Lasts only for a short time ). When, all of you were here, how could Bhishma, that great hero  among the Kurus, immovable as a hill, be thrown down from his car? When bheesma lies on the ground like the Sun himself dropped from the sky , the Kuru kings cannot face the might of  arjuna ,The kurus will fall like trees blown up by fierce mountain wind .But have no fear in your heart  I shall, now protect you ,Like how bheesma did . Let this burden now be upon  me. I see that this universe is ever changing , since even  the great bheesma has fallen . Why  should we have any fear  in battle when death is a must for every one , but when we receive death in the battle field it gives glory , undying fame and opens the doors of  heaven too , therefore,  I shall fearlessly fight and send  those pandava warriors  to Yama’s abode.I will achieve great fame by doing this  .  I shall slay them in battle  or I will be  slain by the foe,  Yudhishthira is possessed of firmness, intelligence, virtue, and might. Bheema is equal to a hundred elephant in strengh, Arjuna is very powerful and is the son of the chief of the celestials, twins each resembling Yama himself, that force within krishna and Satyaki, that force is like the jaws of Death. The Pandava host, therefore is not capable of being easily defeated by the very gods. No coward approaching it, can come back with life. A thorn can only be taken by another thorn , so their  force can only be  opposed by my  force.My mind is firmly fixed upon opposing the enemy and protecting my own army.  Charioteer, I shall today certainly resist the might of the enemy  and I will defeat him . I will not tolerate my troops being borken by the pandavas, I will rally them again and I will march towards  victory .  I shall either achieve victory worthy of an honest man, or casting off my life, I  shall follow Bhishma. I shall either slay all my foes united together, or slain by them, I will  proceed to heaven.Charioteer, This is what I should do, Karna always answers when women and children cry for help or when Duryodhana’s forces  sustains a check. Therefore, I shall today conquer the foe. Disregarding  my very own life in this terrible battle, I shall protect the Kurus and slay pandavas .  Slaying in battle all my foes  together, I shall make duryodhana as the emperor of the world .

Let my beautiful armour,my head-gear, my bows and arrows that resemble poisonous snakes,sixteen quivers, shafts,darts,heavy maces,my conch, my excellent standard bearing the device of the elephant’s girth(strap which covers the elephant) Be ready. Charioteer bring me fast horses ,an excellent chariot , every auspicious article needed for occasions of setting out for battle, Let garlands of flowers be brought, and let them be put on the limbs of my body. Let drums also be beaten for victory! .Go, Charioteer, quickly to the spot where  Arjuna, Bheema, Yudhishthira and the twins, are. Encountering them in battle, either I shall slay them, or, being slain by them, , I shall follow Bhishma.

If all-destroying Death himself comes to protect arjuna,I still shall slay him ”

  1. @ Niraj,

    Your statement-“Sachin abbey sooar ki aulad. Readers I didn’t go on Sachins parents my insults was on his level this bastard started this war on parents”

    My ans- Niraj, tu to sach mein Gadhe ki aulaad hai re….. Tu ek number ka Ullu ka pattha aur Chutiya hai, because u dont even know that Ullu ka pattha means son of an Ullu (Your father)….. Got the point you Bastard….

    Your statement-“Yes but it does proove that Krishna was more than capable of broadcasting false info and since on event in KMG you point punctured Krishna every statemetn cant be truth also.”

    My ans- Personal opinion…. it still does not prove that Krishna said a LIE about his defeat against Jarasandh…..

    Your statement-“Nope you failed to acknowledge Bhima confession you show contradicting incident.”

    My ans- Bhima killed Duryo in a one-on-one war, this is fact & actual event of MB….. So your Statement of “Bhima’s confession” has no meaning in front of this actual event….

    Your statement-“My point on bhargava astra well made yes they were face to face Arjuna saw the weapaon peed I have kicked your ass and chopped your testicles both on bhima and arjuna”

    My ans- Prove that Arjun peed there or DONT TALK IN AIR….. I have already made a “Chatnii” of your testicles when you failed to refute the defeat of Karna at the hands of Bhima/Arjun…..

    Your statement-“its not Vyas its sanjay who blabbered nonse your eyes being in your testicles didn’t notice and tu kab se vyas ka nama jap raha hai kutte you yourself hve preached see what actually happened. A Ujda Chamanmoron idiot bangladeshi resident of mental asylym caught in his own trap.”

    My ans- Ha…ha…ha…. Poor NZ player, still crying for his lost testicles & showing his frustrations….. Now Niraj is grabbing the throat of Sanjay for writing the TRUTH….!! Abey Moron dukkar, u have been oinking “what actually happened” .. “what actually happened” , but instead to accepting “what actually happened”, you are only giving your PERSONAL OPINION….. And what actually happened is that Karna LEFT THE ACTIVE BATTLE with Bhima & then he changed his car, hence implies defeat….. Now dont cry Mr sour loser, u already lost this….

    Your statement-“Bhima being mentioned and all turned back is also crystal clear.”stand all in that attack turned back”

    My ans- Personal opinion…. hence itself punctured…. U failed to give passage which says Bhima backed off….

    Your statement-“I AM INTERPRETING SHALYA PARVA LOGIC KRISHNA SAVING ARJUNA BY KRISHNA SEEING THOSE BOMB INSTEAD OF SUPERNATURAL MY OWN INTERPRETATION.”

    My ans- Ha…ha…ha…. Ha…ha…ha…. U r justifying a Supernatural point with another Supernatural point only…. “KRISHNA SEEING THOSE BOMB…. & stopping those bombs from exploding from 15th day to 18th day, just by sitting in the car of Arjun, WITHOUT GETTING DOWN FOR NITYAKARMAS(like Toilet, food etc)” ….. Ha…ha…ha…. Ha…ha…ha…. Ha…ha…ha…. Niraj,tere dimaag ka fuse udd gaya hai… U also take a break like Sanjay(the blogger) did…… 😉 Ha…ha…ha….

  3. Sachin abbey sooar ki aulad. Readers I didn’t go on Sachins parents my insults was on his level he started this war on parents

    Sachuin ans- Since its Your personal opinion, hence invalid…..
    Just because Krishna broadcasted false info on aswhatthama, so it does not prove that every statement of Krishna should be considered as LIE….. Apna Dhakkan-panaa apne paas rakh…..
    My ans Yes but it does proove that Krishna was more than capable of broadcasting false info and since on event in KMG you point punctured Krishna every statemetn cant be truth also. Apna dhakkan dekh.
    Sachin ans- You claimed that Bhima killed Duryodhana in an unfair fight, so the onus is on you to prove it from ACTUAL war or don’t talk in air……
    My ans Nope you failed to acknowledge Bhima confession you show contradicting incident.
    My statement-“but bhima admitted it that duryodhana was too hot for him to handle him in final battle bhima admiited it and you wont admit it.”
    Sachin ans- As stated previously, Statements have no value in front of actual event…..
    My ans show the actual event which contradicts. My point on bhargava astra well made yes they were face to face Arjuna saw the weapaon peed I have kicked your ass and chopped your testicles both on bhima and arjuna

    My statement-“All karna did was a chariot change.”
    Sachin ans- Dil ko tasalli dene ke lye ye Khayaal achha hai Gaalib…. But Vyas does not agree with you…. Karna defeats at the hands of Bhima remains the fact….
    My ans its not Vyas its sanjay who blabbered nonse your eyes being in your testicles didn’t notice and tu kab se vyas ka nama jap raha hai kutte you yourself hve preached see what actually happened. A Ujda Chamanmoron idiot bangladeshi resident of mental asylym caught in his own trap.

    My statement “Bhima being mentioned and all turned back is also crystal clear.”stand all in that attack turned back

    My statement-“Delayed bomb explisions take place in todays warfer took place then as well. And delays was not 18 days to enlighten your dimwitted sences first 10 days Karna did not even take part in battle. Firing was done on battle 15 and 17.”
    Sachin ans- Punctured supernatural point….. U failed to justify Krishna preventing those bombs/weapons from exploding Arjun’s car…..
    My ans I don’t need to you yourself interpret supernatural to merged to your logic you did the same in below worthles post read it below with you blind bat eyes

    @ Niraj,
    Your statement-“I can see only see Karna concealing himself and beguiling bhima and bhima leaped into the sky this means you believe in the supernatural hence shalya parva section 62 in picture.”
    My ans- Ha…ha..ha… Poor Niraj, when he was left with no other EXCUSE to justify the “Mouse-like” hiding of Karna inside his car, Niraj started the funny Supernatural excuse….. Ha…ha..ha… Sorry Niraj, there is nothing supernatural in this…. So stop crying, you lost this debate….
    My ans- Posting the same passages again & again wont change the fact Niraj….. And the fact is that even though Bhima was running to find another car, but still Karna was continuing the attack & the battle was still continuing, hence no defeat for Bhima….. Because ultimately it was Karna who RAN AWAY (after Bhima challenged him for wrestling fight)….. Hence defeat for Karna….
    Now, regarding “Life sparing”, If Bhima THOUGHT of sparing Karna’s life, then Karna ALSO THOUGHT of sparing Bhima’s life, so if we take the “Thinking process” as supernatural, then both the “Life sparing” gets nullified……
    BUT THE POINT IS THAT, “THE INFORMERS”(GUPTACHARR) OF MB PERIOD WERE SPECIALLY TRAINED TO LIP-READ THE STATEMENTS OF WARRIORS EVEN IF THEY COULD NOT HEAR THEIR VOICES IN THE NOISY ENVIRONMENT OF KURUKSHETRA WAR….. SAME WAS THE CASE WITH 100’S OF INFORMERS (OF SANJAY, WHO USED TO COLLECT THE INFORMATION OF ALL KURUSKSHETRA WARS) … Also, “the Informers” were smart enough to know the “Intentions” of a warrior looking at his behaviour, hence they could indirectly read the mind of warriors from their behaviour….. That is why we see such “Mind reading” by informers at many places…..

    READERS ABOVE THE BUM HEADED SACHIN HAS INTERPRETED SANJAY REPORTING DHRITHARASTHRA WITH A GUPTCHAR LOGIC ( NO MENTION OF THAT IN KMG BUT INTERPRETAION OF SANJAYS SUPERNATURAL PHENOMENON SACHINS OWN INTERPRETATION) I AM INTERPRETING SHALYA PARVA LOGIC KRISHNA SAVING ARJUNA BY KRISHNA SEEING THOSE BOMB INSTEAD OF SUPERNATURAL MY OWN INTERPRETATION.
