In one of the most famous passages in MahaAmbhAirata, DurAmyA³dhana, the heroic but flawed king of the KAiuravas, meets his end when he is dishonorably defeated in battle by his arch-enemy, Bhima. Framing a fascinating account of the sacred sites along the river SarAisvati, the duel poignantly portrays the downfall of a once great hero in the face of a new order governed by Krishna, in which the warrior code is brushed aside in order to ensure the predestined triumph of the PAindavas.
