Who was Ashwatthama?
A person from the Mahabharata period, who is believed to be still alive. This person’s name is Ashwatthama. He was the son of Dronacharya, the guru of the Kauravas and Pandavas. He fought on behalf of the Kauravas in the battle of Mahabharata. But due to one of its mistakes, it gets a curse due to which it will live and wander till the end of the world.
Lord Krishna was the one who cursed Ashwatthama to wander till the end of the world. Shri Krishna gave this curse because it killed Pandava’s sons while he was sleeping. It also destroyed Uttara’s womb with Brahmashastra. Enraged by the killing of the unborn child, Shri Krishna gave a terrible curse to Ashwatthama. This gross sin of Ashwattham was improper but a big reason.
To kill Dronacharya in the battle of Mahabharata, the Pandavas spread false rumors that Ashwatthama was dead. Due to this, Dronacharya drowned in mourning and the Pandavas saw the opportunity and killed Dronacharya. To avenge the murder of his father by deceit, Ashwatthama killed the Pandava sons. Ashwatthama is wandering here with a wound on the head due to the curse.
When Ashwatthama fled after killing the Pandavas, Bhima followed him. The Ashtabha region which is presently located near the border of Gujarat and Maharashtra. There was a miserable war between the two here. Here a pond has formed due to Bhima’s mace hitting the ground. There is also Ashwattham Kund nearby. People here believe that even today, during the night, Ashwatthama shows the way to those who have wandered off the road.
When and how he was named Ashwatthama?
It has a very interesting story. When Ashwatthama was born, he uttered a word like Ashwa. After this, Akashvani said that this child will be known as Ashwatthama.
A gem was present on Ashwatthama’s head from birth. Draupadi donated her life to Guru Putra on Arjuna’s prayer but as a punishment, took away Mani and cut her hair. In those days, cutting hair meant the death penalty.
Ashwatthama’ is the director of Aditya’s dream project. Vicky Kaushal said It is going to be a new world as an actor, explore the new form of technology along with acting. Can not wait to start the tour again with this amazing team.”
