Young Pandavas
  Today we looked at the story of young Kunti and how she got her boon from rishi Durvasa. Kunti used the mantra to call upon Surya dev ( Sun God) and was blessed with a divine child - Karna, whom she abandons as soon as he was born.  Pandu, the new king of Hastinapur weds Kunti and Madri. 
Then we looked at how Pandu falls prey to a curse from a rishi in the form of a deer; Under these circumstances he gives up his throne and retreats to the forests.  With the help of her powerful mantra , Pandu ,Kunti and Madri call up on the Gods to have 5 healthy and noble boys.  Eventually Pandu succumbs to the Rishi's curse . Kunti and the  Pandavas return to Hastinapur , where they grow up with their cousins the Kauravas under the care and guidance of their Grand Sire -Bheeshma.  Right from the beginning, the Kauravas did not get along with their cousins, especially the mighty Bheema. Duryodhan tried many ways to get rid of his cousins, but the Pandavas had the blessings of the Gods and every time they came out without a scratch.
