maharshi durvasa ka varadan

age chalakar pandu ko shap ho jane se jab unhean santan utpann karane ki rok ho gee, tab kuanti ne maharshi durvasa ke varadan ka hal sunaya. yah sunane se maharaj pandu ko sahara mil gaya. unaki anumati pakar kuanti ne dharmaraj ke dvara yudhishthir ko, vayu ke dvara bhimasen ko aur indr ke dvara arjun ko utpann kiya. isake pashchath pandu ne putr utpann karane ke lie jab unase dobara agrah kiya, tab unhoanne use svikar nahian kiya. kah diya ki yah niyam viruddh aur anuchit hoga.

vaivahik jivan

vastav mean kuanti ka vaivahik jivan anandamay nahian hua. arambh mean unhean kuchh sukh mila, kiantu isake anantar pati ke shapagrast hokar rogi ho jane aur kuchh samay pashchath mar jane se unako b de klesh sahane p de. rrishi log jab balakoan samet vidhava kuanti ko unake gharavaloan ko sauanpane hastinapur le gaye, tab vahaan unaka svagat to hua nahian, ulta ve sandeh ki drishti se dekhi geean. unaki santan ko vaidh santati manane mean apatti ki gee. kisi prakar unako rakh bhi liya gaya to tarah-tarah se sataya jane laga. ve apane putroan ke sath varanavat bheji geean aur aise bhavan mean rakhi geean, jo kisi bhi gh di bhabhakakar sabako bhasm kar deta. kiantu hitaishi vidur ke kaushal se ve sankat se putroan samet bachakar nikal geean. jangal mean unhoanne vividh kasht sahe. sath mean putroan ke rahane se unake lie b di-b di kathinaiyaan bhi saral ho geean. inhian kashtoan ke silasile mean unako putravadhoo draupadi ki prapti huee. isase unhean kuchh santosh hua. isi bich unhean dhritarashtr ne hastinapur mean bulakar alag rahane ka prabandh kar diya, jisamean koee jhag da-bakhe da n ho. yahi tho da-sa samay tha, jab kuanti ko kuchh aram mila.

pandavoan ke sath vanavas

isake bad duryodhan ne yudhishthir ko jue mean harakar shart ke anusar vanavas karane ko bhej diya. is vanavas ke samay kuanti ko apane putroan se alag hastinapur mean rahana p da. unake lie yah bahut b da sankat tha. unhoanne hastinapur se yudhishthir ke pas sandesha bheja tha, vah un jaisi vir patni aur viramata ke anuroop tha. ve nahian chahati thian ki sankat mean p dakar unake putr atmasamman ko kho baithean. sankat sahate-sahate unhean sankatoan se ek prakar ka prem ho gaya tha. isi se, ek bar shrikrishn ke varadan dene ko taiyar hone par kuanti ne kaha tha ki yadi maian dhan-daulat athava aur koee vastu maangooangi to usake pher mean p dakar tumhean (bhagavan ko) bhool jaooangi, isalie maian zindagi bhar kathinaiyoan se ghiri rahana pasand karati hooan. unamean phanse rahane se maian sada tumako smaran kiya karooangi.

madri ka vishvas

maharaj paandu ki doosari rani madri ke sath kuanti ka bartav bahut hi achchha tha. vah kuanti ko apane bete sauanpakar sati ho gee thi. usane kuanti se kaha tha ki maian pakshapat se bachakar apane aur tumhare betoan ka palan n kar sakooangi. yah kathin kam tumhian karana. mujhe tum par poora bharosa hai.

dhritarashtr aur gandhari ka satkar

dhritarashtr aur gaandhari ke putroan ne yadyapi kuanti ke putroan ko kasht dene mean kuchh kami nahian ki thi, phir bhi ve sada jeth-jethani ka satkar kiya karati thian. pandavoan ko rajy prapt ho jane par kuchh samay ke bad jab dhritarashtr, gandhari ke sath, van ko jane lage, tab kuanti bhi unake sath ho geean. dhritarashtr adi ne unako ghar par hi rahane ke lie bahut samajhaya, kiantu ve nahian lautian. unhoanne dharmaraj se spasht kar diya ki 'maianne apane aram ke lie tumako yuddh karane ke lie sannaddh nahian kiya tha, yuddh karane ka mera uddeshy yah tha ki tum sansar mean vir ki bhaanti jivan vyatit kar sako.' unhoanne van mean jakar apane jeth-jethani ki seva-shushroosha ji-jan se ki. is drishti se usaka mahattv gandhari se bhi badh jata hai. gandhari ko santan-prem tha, ve apane putroan ka bhala chahati bhi thian. yadyapi duryodhan ke paksh ko nyay-viruddh janakar unhoanne use vijay ka ashirvad nahian diya tha, phir bhi mata ka hriday kahaan tak patthar ka ho jata. unhoanne kurukshetr ka sanhar dekh aant mean shrikrishn ko shap de hi dala. kiantu kuanti ne hazar kasht sahane par bhi aisa koee kam nahian kiya, jisase unake charitr ka mahattv kam ho jay. unamean itani adhik daya thi ki ve ekachakra nagari mean rahate samay, apane ashrayadata brahman ke bete ke badale apane putr bhimasen ko rakshas ki bheant karane ko taiyar ho geean. thian. yah doosari bat hai ki us rakshas se bhimasen ikkis nikale aur use marakar unhoanne bastivaloan ka sankat kat diya. kuanti itani udar thian ki unhoanne hidimba rakshasi ko bhi putravadhoo manane mean apatti nahian ki.
