Winds Yoked To Fight Our Friends

A Nano Drama


Saṃjaya: "King! The Saindhava horses." (guides Dhṛtarāṣṭra's hand)


Dhṛtarāṣṭra (feeling): "Duḥśalā's messenger said, Ājāneya breed. Tall, swift, untiring." (guides Gāndhārī's hand) "They'll draw Droṇa's chariot."


Vidura: "Beautiful animals, unseen ... winds yoked to fight our friends."


Gāndhārī (feeling): "Ājāneyas ignore noise and pain to finish the fight. What colour?"


Saṃjaya: "Blood."


Canonical basis: Udyogaparvan 37.1-6

saptadaś'emān rāj'endra Manuḥ Svāyaṃbhuvo'bravīt

Vaicitravīrya puruṣān ākāśaṃ muṣṭibhir ghnataḥ

tān ev'Endrasya hi dhanur anāmyaṃ namato'bravīt

atho Marīcinaḥ pādān anāmyān namatas tathā

yaś c'āśiṣyaṃ śāsati yaś ca kupyate

yaś c'ātivelaṃ bhajate dviṣantam

striyaś ca yo'rakṣati bhadram astu te

yaś c'āyācyaṃ yācati yaś ca katthate

yaś c'ābhijātaḥ prakaroty akāryaṃ

yaś c'ābalo balinā nitya-vairī

aśraddadhānāya ca yo bravīti

yaś c'ākāmyaṃ kāmayate nar'endra

vadhvā hāsaṃ śvaśuro yaś ca manyate

vadhvā vasann uta yo māna-kāmaḥ

para-kṣetre nirvapati yaś ca bījaṃ

striyaṃ ca yaḥ parivadate'tivelam

yaś c'aiva labdhvā na smarām'īty uvāca

dattvā ca yaḥ katthati yācyamānaḥ

yaś c'āsataḥ sāntvam upāsat'īha

ete'nuyānty anilaṃ pāśa-hastāḥ
