Mahabharat: Bheem’s demon son Ghatotkacha enters the battlefield to take on the enemy forces at midnight!
We told you in the last post how the Kauravas went about attacking the forces in the Pandava camp at midnight with the primary motive to kill Arjun via Karna’s Vajra weapon.At that hour, the Pandavas were in the process of finishing off with the funeral rites of Abhimanyu. But Princess Uttara notices that her father – the King of Matsya – is lying killed nearby. All the Pandavas rush to the spot where the dead body of Viraat lay but even when they could console themselves for the cold blooded murder of the King, they were baffled to find their camp being attacked by the Kauravas.Clearly, all the rules of the warfare are now broken by the battling forces.While, Arjun and his brothers gear up to fight the enemy at the dark hour, Sri Krishna asks Bheem to summon his demon son Ghatotkacha to tackle with the Kauravas citing that the power of demons are effective at night.On one hand, Bheem conjures Ghatotkacha by calling out his name thrice, and on the other hand, Karna gets ready to fire the Vajra on Arjun. But to his luck, Arjun gets saved as Ghatotkacha enters the arena a few moments before the Vajra is shot by Karna.In the next few scenes, Ghatotkacha wreaks havoc on the Kauravas which causes great distress to the enemy ranks. He even threatens Duryodhan by catching hold of him. A bewildered Duryodhan pleads Karna to use the Vajra on Ghatotkacha as he is one to be killed by a divine weapon only. However, Karna excuses himself by saying that he has reserved Indra’s weapon only to exterminate his arch rival Arjun.This time, Duryodhan orders Karna to shoot the Vajra on Ghatotkacha. But Karna is reluctant to do the needful and gets thinking.Next, we will see what fate awaits the good-hearted demon Ghatotkacha.
