Let us not forget that we have seen Arjuna and Karna from their birth to death. Naturally, we have “different” Arjunas and Karnas here. Would any reader accept about him/herself that he/she has remained constant and static throughout his/her life? That, what he/she has been in her teen days, he/she has remained the same in her 20s or 30s or 40s or 50s…? Would any reader in his/her ripe days like to be judged by his/her action of green days?

Krishna visits Pandavas in the beginning of Vana Parva and apologizes for not being there at time of Dyuta. Satyaki and Balarama want to destroy Kauravas. Then, Pandavas visit the Yadavas at Prabhasa. Satyaki and Balarama have not given up their homicidal tendencies. Then Krishna visits with Satyabhama alone. He does not bring the blood-thirsty relations with him this time. He had enough of blood and gore talk and Samba salivating at tearing the arms of Dushasana and beating him to death with them.
This visit is dominated by the incandescent qualities and luminous intelligence of Draupadi as she confers with her samdhin, Satyabhama (after all Suthanu married Bhanu).
Next Krishna comes is at end of the Virata Parva with the BaraatBharata or BandBajaBharata! (copyright pending), aaj mere bhanje ki shaadi hai!
