Unknown Facts About Pandavas And Draupadi – ద్రౌపది పతివ్రత ఎలా అయ్యింది!? – With Subtitles
Draupadi is one of the most important female characters in the Hindu epic, Mahabharata. According to the epic, she is the daughter of Drupada, King of Panchala and wife of the five pandavas: Yudhishthira, Bhima, Arjuna, Nakula and Sahadeva. Draupadi had five sons: Prativindhya, Sutasoma, Srutakarma, Satanika, and Srutasena.Draupadi is considered as one of the Panchakanyas or Five Virgins.
Draupadi in Mahabharata is one of the only examples that participated in the practice of polyandry. She actively participated in her husbands’ political affairs. When her husband Yudhishthira, put her at stake in a game of dice, she questioned his act instead of submitting to what he wanted. She also questioned the court as to why was it that when Yudhishthira had bet himself and lost the game, he has the right to still bet against her. This showed that in a predominant male society, she raised her voice. She argued and pleaded to defend her honour several times. After the shameful incident of her attempted disrobing, she cursed the Kauravas that they would pay for their acts. Her form became so fearful, that the King had to apologise for his sons’ disorderly conduct and offer her a boon. That’s when Draupadi asked back for her husbands’ titles and lands, and nothing for her own self. During the Agyaata Vaas in King Virata’s kingdom, Draupadi was disguised as one of the queen’s maids. Keechaka, the King’s brother-in-law, tried to have his way with Draupadi, who turned to the king for help. This shows that Panchali had a firm belief in the law of the land, and didn’t take matters into her own hands. Draupadi is an embodiment of all the women who have stood up for their rights and have succeeded. She was well aware of her rights and did not hesitate in exercising them.
