PowerFul Next Generations

           The topic I have chosen is to simply implicate that the generation next to ours is stronger and intelligent than us. This we come across while seeing the next generation of us. They are capable of using a touch phone at the age of 1 and can call even. They have the talent to challenge the most competitive world at a high school class.  Some times we feel they are more like us, but the truth is they are like you at the age of 1 year when you are in 30's.This was never new to anyone, even for our ancestors.


Our story begins from Tretayuga where Lord Shriram faces his own children Lavakusa’s in a war comfortably easier than his worthy opponents like Ravana.

Lord Shri Ram defeats the demon Ravana in the greatest wars of Indian History at Sri Lanka and returns back to his country along with Devi Sita his consort after releasing her from Ravana. He becomes the best ruler of worlds and earns the highest rank among the hearts of his people. Lord Shri Ram used to go outside his palace as a common man and wishes to know the difficulties of his people always. One day he finds a husband and wife fighting with each other. Husband finds fault with his wife’s behavior and beats her. Wife says that the affection and love towards wife should be like lord shri ram who accepted her wife after being in the palace of Ravana for those many days. Husband unknowingly responds that saying I am not that fool to accept the guilty like Shri Ram. Listening to that Lord Shriram feels bad and orders his brother Lakshmana to drop his pregnant wife in forests. Lakshmana with heavy heart leaves Devi Sita in forest. Devi sita walks toward the deepest forest and finally reaches the hermitage of Maharshi Valmiki. She takes the shelter in the hermitage and gives birth to the twin children- Lava and Kusha.

Lord Shriram was not able to show up in his court for years. In mean time lovely kids Lava and Kusha grew young as Muni Putra. They were taught of the greatest king Lord Shriram as a role model to everyone and was asked to educate everyone. One day they reach kingdom Ayodhya and meets Lord Shriram. Lord appreciates them for their affection but was never able to answer them for question why lord left his consort in forest. They never knew that their mother is lord’s consort. Lavakusha’s develop a sort of aversion on Lord thereafter.

One day lord performs a penance to extend his kingdom, it is Ashwamedha Yagam --Which means a horse of lord shriram is left freely on lands and to what extent it may travel. All of it belongs to the king. Whoever stops the free horse are declared as enemies to king and they shall face the mighty king till their conquered. The Royal Horse travels towards the hermitage of Maharshi Valmiki where the Lava Kusha’s stop it challenging the mighty king. They decided to face Lord Shriram for making Devi Sita suffer in forests. Knowing the word that the horse is stopped by some saint kids, Bharatha and Shatrugna brothers of Lord Shri Ram go forward to make them understand the power of Lord. Lava Kusha are the best in knowledge and knows everything about the Lord from Valmiki and their mother. Both the brothers of lord are unable to convince the children and decided to fight them. Kids easily defeat them – They have the power of Father and Blessings too.

Lakshmana the angry brother of Lord knowing the defeat of his brothers move forward to revenge but gets pleased by the kid’s appearance and asks them to accept defeat. However they never accepts such offer and fights him too. They defeat Lakshmana as well. To be more concise and clear, Lord Rama is Shri Maha Vishnu, Lakshmana his serpentine, Bharatha and Shatrugna are his Sudarshana Chakra and Sankha.

Lord Shri Ram himself comes to know about the caliber of the saint kids. Lord Hanuma knowing that the kids are fighting their own father conveys the same message to Devi Sita. By that time the kids stands against and stands above all the Astra of Lord. Lord is left with no other choice than leaving his SUPER Astra --- RAM BAAN (Arrow of Ram) with which demon Ravana is killed. It is believed that the power of entire Ramavatar is embedded into that weapon.

Devi Sita comes to rescue her children and stands before lord shri ram after many years. Identifying his consort lord understands that his sons stood against him unknowingly. Kids knowing that their father is lord shri ram drops their weapon and withdrew war. Lord accepts Lava Kusa and makes them the kings. Devi Sita completes her Avatar after handing over the kids to their father and Rama completes his avatar after making his sons as kings.

Story of Veera Abhimanya:

Lord Krishna as the role player all the young kings of the Pandavas and Kauravas are killed in MahaBharatha. Lord Krishna who is the incarnation of Shri Maha Vishnu himself believed that the young kings, sons of Pandavas and Kauravas are much stronger than their fathers and fore fathers. Hence he played a role in each story by getting them killed at MahaBharath war. The question why they has to be killed raises before we start telling the stories. Before Dwaparyuga, the goddess of earth visits Shri Maha Vishnu and asks to relieve her from the pain of bearing the weight which is increase of population on earth. Then Lord decides to create a huge war on earth and thereby decreasing the weight. The reason for Lord’s Incarnation lies behind the oath given to Goddess of earth. His actions has always contributed towards killing the unbeatable warriors on earth, his reasons are simple when there is no opponent, no need of a warrior. He always wanted to make a sole heir for the throne and doesn’t want the brothers to fight anymore.

Let’s start with the warrior Abhimanya who is the son of King Arjuna. To start with his story, let’s start from the time when he is in the womb of his mother-Subadhra. When he is womb Subadhra asked Arjuna to be with her and tell something he knows. Arjuna being an expert as Archer tells her all the secrets of war and how to destroy various battle formations. While he is deeply explaining Chakravyuha Subadhra falls asleep. He never identifies it and continues to tell the process of entering the chakravyuha for which abhimanya from womb listens and learns. When Arjuna is about to tell the exit process of Chakravyuha Lord Krishna comes there and makes him realize that Subadhra is sleeping. This way Princess Abhimanya is aware of entering the chakravyuha but never know how to exit which leads to his death.

When he became young he was trained by Pradyumna, son of Sri Krishna and father Arjuna. He marries Uttara, daughter of King Virata. Abhimanya stands on the war day of 13th in MahaBharath and helps pandavas in overcoming their defeat. He is just 16 years and he kills about ¾ of akshouhini army single handedly. The story of this warrior is so painful when it just started. His wife Uttara, is carrying parikshit (who is the only one ruler left after MahaBharath). He starts for helping his family in war at this stage and he never sees them again.

The story starts when Dronacharya plans to capture Yudishtira in the absence of Arjuna. He plans for a Chakravyuha on the 13th day of war and asks Bhagadatta to lure Arjuna by taking him away from the war field. Arjuna chases him and leaves the war field. To beat the chakravyuha, rest of pandavas are not capable. They seek the help of Abhimanya in this point and assures him that they will follow him destructing the entire army. Here comes the introduction of another king Saindhava who achieves the boon of stopping all the Pandavas except Arjuna for one day. He stops all the pandavas and Abhimanya was left alone on the fields of Chakravyuha. He enters into the chakravyuha with a force and first takes the blessings of all elders with arrows.

He is a courageous and dashing warrior, he is capable to hold all great heroes of that era – Drona, Duryodhana, Karna, Dushashana, Kripacharya, Bhishma,etc.,  and proves that none can win him in Dwandva Yudha( One to One Combat). He destroys the entire army which came on his way and killed many warriors. He spared Duryodhana so that his uncle Bhima can fulfill his oath. When Duryodhana’s son, Lakshmana comes to defend his father Abhimanya kills him in one single arrow. Seeking to take revenge somehow on the young prince, Duryodhana orders all his warriors to attack at a time on Abhimanya. 

Drona also concludes that he cannot be killed in one to one combat and has to do it only through illicit means. Following them Karna cuts-off Abhimanya’s Bow, Drona and Kripa kills the horses and Charioteers. Abhimanya starts fighting with his sword and soon it is also separated from him, Drona destroys the sword and shield of prince with his arrows. Young prince finds nothing to fight with and hence picks the wheel of the broken chariot but it is broken into fragments by the enemy forces with arrows. He picks up a mace and fights Ashwatthama who leaps back avoiding the fight. Abhimanya kills Durmasana son of Dushasana who came forward to fight him alone. Seeing this Dushasana aim arrows on him and makes him without that mace. Karna stabs him in back and one by one everyone throws an arrow each and contributes to the death of Abhimanya, the great warrior. Lord Krishna knowing the future drives away his father Arjuna from war field.

However Arjuna pledges to kill Saindhava who has stopped his brothers from supporting his son and kills him by sunset.

This is the story of a great warrior who has performed his war skills better than his father and of course better than anyone.

Story of Veera Ghatotkacha:

Veera Ghatotkacha is the son of Bhima and Hidimbi. He is half-demon and half-human by their parents. Possess many magical powers and is able to fight during nights as demon. In Mahabharat he is an important fighter. He made all the opponents-Kauravas think that can we survive this night from him and spared for tomorrow. He received a boon from Lord Krishna himself that his magical powers can be untouched for everyone except him. He is married to Ahilwathi and have a son named Barbarika.

Coming to Base Line where the role of Lord Krishna has meant importantly in saving his favorite Arjuna. Karna had saved a weapon, Shakthi for killing Arjuna which is granted as boon from Indra when he gives away all his armor cutting his flesh. To be more concise Karna is son of Lord Surya and he is born with armor which is not penetrable by any arrow. He has a great nature of sacrificing anything when someone requests. He is by that nature until he kills Veera Abhimanya after pleading for a mace.

Arjuna is the son of King Indra, Indra knowing that his son cannot defeat karna when he wears armor takes the form of a Brahmin and requests him for that. Karna cuts his flesh and gives away the armor and ear rings, Indra getting pleased with his nature presents him a powerful weapon named Vimala Shakti. This is saved by karna for the next day’s war and meant to use against Arjuna. Lord Krishna knowing everything asks Bhima to call for Ghatotkacha intimating the death of Veera Abhimanya. In one fight Veera Abhimanya gets defeated with Ghatotkacha. Later they come to know that they are brothers and were more affectionate. Such was the ability of Ghatotkacha.

                By characteristic of the demons, their powers get increased and become extraordinarily powerful in nights. No warrior on Kaurava side was able to restrict Ghatotkacha in that night time. His dark skills keep on increasing in that night. Duryodhana calls for Karna and asks him to use the Shakthi against him. Karna says him that Arjuna can never be stopped if this weapon is consumed. Duryodhana says him that we can never survive this night from that warrior and fight tomorrow if he is not dead. Understanding the means of his king, Karna Aims Ghatotkacha with his mighty gifted weapon.

         Ghatotkacha realizing that his end has come in the form of weapon increases his gigantic size. Ghatotkacha dies at one shot of that mighty weapon. When he has fell on the army one akshouhini army gets crushed below him. (Akshouhini consists of 21,870 Chariots, 21,870 elephants, 65,610 Cavalry and 109,350 Infantry).

Story of Upa pandavas:

                UpaPandavas are the five sons born to Draupadi from each of the five Pandavas. They are Prativindya born to Yudhistira, Satanika born to Nakula, Sutasoma born to Bhima, Srutasena born to Sahadeva and Srutakarma born to Arjuna.

All of them are survived till the end of MahaBharath war. Surviving till end of MahaBharath war itself indicates the capability of Upa Pandavas in war. They kills everyone who is on their way. However there are no such stories indicating their capability at war. Once King Duryodhana is killed by Bhima, the war ended and the survivors from Kaurava side are only Kritavarma, Vrishakethu, Kripacharya and Ashwatthama-Son of Drona. Ashwatthama then knows about the death of his father who was killed when no weapon is handled by him. He also comes to know that Yudishtira lied that Ashwatthama is dead in war and hence his father dropped the weapons which lead to death through Arjuna. Thinking to take revenge on pandavas he attacks them during night with the help of other survivors. They kills everyone who came on their way and finally kills the sleeping princes, the UpaPandavas assuming as Pandavas. Krishna plays a role here by making the young princes to sleep in Pandavas camp. Ashwatthama unknowingly kills them and escapes from there. He takes shelter in a hermitage which belongs to Vyasa.

Pandavas seek to revenge for the death of their sons and search for Ashwatthama. When they are about to reach the hermitage. Ashwatthama devises a powerful weapon Brahmastra on them for which Arjuna also devises Brahmastra (A powerful Atom Bomb) against. All the worlds crumble against the power of the mighty weapons when Lord Krishna and Vyasa Intervene and asks to take the weapon back. Arjuna who has learned everything from Dronacharya, father of Ashwatthama takes the weapon back but Ashwatthama is not aware of this and hence he redirects it to the womb of Uttara where Parikshit, son of Abhimanya is growing. Lord Krishna knowing that the only last heir is left in her womb protects him against the mighty weapon. Lord Curses Ashwatthama for fighting on nights and on his intention of killing children.
