Playmates Go To War

A Nano Drama


Yuyudhāna (doffing armour): "I told Duryodhana, 'Kill me gloriously, playmate! I've seen enough slaughter.'"


Bhojyā (cleaning his wounds): "My childhood ended when you fought Sauvīrarāja for me."


Yuyudhāna shrugs.


Bhojyā: "My ten playful babies lie lifeless outside ... ten days already. When I can go to them, what will I see?"


Canonical basis: Bhīṣmaparvan 70.11-25

taṃ dṛṣṭvā Yuyudhānasya sutā daśa mahā-balāḥ
