Pain and Grief of Widows in Mahabharta

The greatest loss of war is to the women who lose their husbands in the war As they have to live the rest of their lives without their husband Mahabharata was one of the biggest ancient wars. There were a lot of people involved who lost their lives What happened to the wives who lost their husband, let's see This was written in Mahabarata's Ashramvasikparv 

This story happened after 15 years of Mahabharata ,Back then Pandavas mother Kunti, Drutrastra, Gandhari, Vidhur & Sanjay were living in a jungle One day Sahdev decided to meet his mother, all Pandavas agreed that they should meet their mother Yudhistir started preparing to go to meet his mother Yudhistir's army as well all people in Hastinapur were with Yudhistir ,Widows were in those people as well. They all stayed there for a month One day Pandava's Guru Vyas came to meet Pandava.

He saw all people of Hastinapur were there and they were in the grief of those who lost lives in the war Muni Vyas told them not to have grief about the people who lost lives. They must be in heaven People were still in the grief, So Muni Vyas told them he would help them all to meet their relatives who were in So you could meet them by yourself and ask them how they are The ashram was near Ganga river, so Muni Vyas took them all to the river.

After the sunset, he stepped in the water and started a ritual for all those who lost the lives in the war Suddenly all those dead people came out of Ganga river All the Hastinapur people were happy as they met their relatives who were dead. All people were asking their relatives, how they were and other question.
Hastinapur people found out that the dead people are happy in their world ,So they were now out of the grief .To all the widows Muni Vyas said you should sacrifice your life in the Ganga to be with your husbands .All widows started to enter in the water & sacrificed their lives to be with their husbands.\

Land of Kuruskhetra was full of such mysteries.

According to one story, when Kuru was plowing this area, Indra went and asked him the reason for this. Kuru said that whoever is killed at this place, he should go to the virtuous world, that is my wish. Indra went to Swargalok, making him laugh.

This happened many times. Indra also told this thing to other gods. The gods told Indra that if possible, do Kuru in your favor. Indra then went to Kuru and said that if any animal, bird or human being killed in this place by staying foodless or fighting it would be part of heaven. Bhishma, Krishna etc. knew all this, so the war of Mahabharata was fought in Kurukshetra.

 According to the Vanaparva of Mahabharata, by coming to Kurukshetra, all people are freed from sin and who says that I will go to Kurukshetra and reside there. Even the dust mites here give the ultimate rank to the sinner.

Narada Purana states that the planets, constellations and stars are afraid of falling down from time to time (from the sky), but those who die in Kurukshetra do not fall again on the earth, that is, they do not take birth again. In the first verse of the Bhagavad Gita, Kurukshetra is called Dharmakshetra.

There is a huge pond here which was constructed during the Mahabharata period. There is a place called Jyotisar where Shri Krishna preached the Gita. Here the place named Brahmasarovar, Embedded Sarovar, Bhadrakali Temple, Pihowa, and Shri Sthaneshwar Mahadev Temple and Pundari is famous.

Structure of the Warzone

According to the Adiparva and Samprahava of Mahabharata, in the war of Mahabharata, the Kauravas had 11 Akshauhini and the Pandavas had 7 Akshauhini army. The Kauravas could not win even after having much military force and nobles. The Akshauhini army consists of four parts - elephant riders, chariots, horsemen and foot soldiers. One rider on a horse, two on an elephant and also two people on a chariot. There are four horses in the chariot. There are 5 foot soldiers around them.

One chariot, one elephant, five foot soldiers and three horses, consisting of one leaf, three semen one shanamukh, three sainamukh kulam, three gulam ki gan, one ganam of three gana, one karana of three kahni, three karanas A Chamu, an Aikini of three Chamu and an Akshouni army of ten Anikini are formed.

An Akshauhini army consists of 21 thousand eight hundred and seventy chariots, 21 thousand eight hundred and seventy elephants, one lakh nine thousand 350 foot soldiers, sixty five thousand six hundred and ten horses. That is, 2 lakh 18 thousand 700 (218700) all these are in one Akshauhini army. If we add the total number of 18 Akshohini army, then the approximate number of 1968300 soldiers is there. However, it is read in many places that about 4.5 million people participated in this war. Which included all kinds of people except the soldier. Such as campkeepers, cooks, weapons and weapons storage etc.

Dead or surviving warriors of Mahabharata: After killing millions of people, it is said that about 24,165 Kaurava soldiers had gone missing. Whereas after the war of Mahabharata, only 3 warriors from the Kauravas and 15 from the Pandavas, a total of 18 warriors survived.
