 Pandavas wed Draupadi in a grand ceremony conducted by King Drupada. News that the Pandavas are alive and have wed Draupadi reaches Hastinapur. The Kauravas are extremely disappointed, but get restrained by their gurus and rishis.  Bheeshma advises Dhritharashtra that the right thing to do is to invite the Pandavas back and give them half the kingdom. This will help them regain the faith of the citizens.
