Karna is one of the central characters of the epic Mahabharata. He is counted as one of the maharathis who were there in the army. He was the son conceived by Kunti in curiosity to check the blessing given to her by Rishi Durvasa.
Maharani Kunti served Durvasa rishi with great care and attention and hence, won his heart. In return for her service, he blessed her with a boon that whosoever demigod she will call with this mantra, he is bound to appear before her and bless her.
Out of curiosity, she invoked Surya dev and he appeared before her. He asked her to ask for a boon to which she said that she was just testing. Since Surya was bound to give her a progeny, he gave her a son who was as brilliant as him.
Since Kunti was a maiden at that time, to avoid disrespect and dishonour, she took the child and rendered him afloat in the river. The child was received by the couple, Adiratha and Radha who nourished and fostered him nicely.
Since Adhirathi was the charioteer of Maharaj Dhritarashtra, the child became inclined to Kauravas and hence, ended up battling against his own five brothers. He was blessed with all nice qualities and was almost invincible due to the golden armor of Surya and the blessings given to him by Parashurama, his spiritual master.
He also received several curses from his master, a brahmin and mother earth which lead to his ultimate end. Karna was one of the greatest warriors, whose martial exploits are recorded in the epic, and the only warrior believed to be able to defeat mighty Arjuna in battle, an admiration expressed by Sri Krishna and Bhishma pitamah within the body of this work.
Karna is often quoted for his sacrifice, courage, charity, valour, and selflessness and hence got the name Danveer Karna.
Nakula was the son fo Maharaj Pandu, who was born out of his second wife, Madri. When Kunti maharani had already begot 3 sons by calling various demigods, Pandu asked her to call for more demigods and have children through them, to which she refused saying that a women having intimate relationships with more than 3 men is called a prostitute.
Since Pandu desired more children, he was thinking of doing so. Then Madri approached Pandu and asked him to ask Kunti to teach her the mantra and beget children like that.
Kunti, being pleased taught Madri the mantra and hence, she called upon the Twin Ashwini Kumaras, the doctors of the demigods and they blessed Madri with two children, Nakul and Sahadev.
In sanskrit, Nakul means the most beautiful. The aakashwani at the time of their birth sadi that they will be most famous in prowess and beauty, even more than the Ashwini kumaras as well.
Nakula married Draupadi during this period and had a son, Satanika; who was killed by Ashwatthama in the Kurukshetra War. Nakula also married Karenumati, daughter of Dhristaketu, who bore him one son, Niramitra; however he was killed by Karna during the war.
The skills of Nakula are:
- Horse-keeping: Nakula’s deep understanding of horse breeding and training is documented in the Mahabharata after the death of Narakasura by Krishna. In a conversation with Virata, Nakula claimed to know the art of treating all illnesses of horses. He was also a highly skilled charioteer.
- Ayurveda: Being a son of the physicians, Ashwini Kumaras, Nakula was also believed to be an expert in Ayurveda.
