Synopsis of the story:

The Exile
Last time in Balvihar: Krishna and Arjuna saved Maya, an asura. Maya granted them one wish. Then the pandavas got a half of the kingdom of Hastinapur. This land was very unpleasant. But the Pandavas with their hard work transform it.
That is when Maya comes in. He built a Palace for the Pandavas out of gems that were from the lake Bindusara. The Pandavas ruled for a long time and were very prosperous. They even performed the Rajasuya Yagna. Therefore, Duryodhan gets very jealous and asks his uncle Shakuni for a plan to grab the land. Uncle Shakuni thought of the “game of dice” plan. Watch episode 47 of BR Chopra’s Mahabharath. In this episode, Sakuni tricks the Pandavas in the game of dice and makes them lose all their possessions including themselves and Draupadi. Dussasan is rude to Draupadi, but Krishna saves her. Dhritarashtra gives back the Pandavas everything but Duryodhana again invites them for a game and this time, the Pandavas had to go in exile for 13 years and the last year they had to hide. If they are found or stated they had to start another 13 years and hide again.

Jai P.
