Krishna and Karna
Karna is the greatest Hero of Mahabharata. He was a matchless warrior and a man of compassion whose magnanimity knew no bounds. Karna was the son of Lord Surya and Kuntidevi. He was born before the marriage of Queen Kunti to king Pandu. So Karna was abandoned in the river Ganga. A charioteer of Duryodhana, Adhiratha and his wife Radha took care of him. He excelled in everything. Since he was brought up by a charioteer, he was considered to be of lower caste. Krishna knows about the secret of Karna’s birth and wants to bring him to the Pandava army as He doesn’t want him to die along with Duryodhana. He tells Karna, the secret about his birth. He also tells that he will be the greatest among the Pandavas and all other brothers will listen to him. But Karna refuses and tells Krishna, that when the whole world humiliated him, Duryodhana rendered him all support. He does not want to desert Duryodhana and join Pandavas. Rather he would give his life for his friend Duryodhana. Krishna, the Lord Himself was dumbstruck with Karna’s loyalty towards his friend Duryodhana.
