Karna was not defeated, but betrayed!

Do you think that Karna died because of the arrow that was launched by Arjuna? What happened to karna was a betrayal. That should not have happened to such a generous, skillful and courageous warrior. Karna was actually betrayed. Not once, not twice, but 4 times. How?, This is how:

  1. In the first place, his mom betrayed him. Kunthi, his mother, was stupid enough to “experiment” a boon that was granted to her. The sun-god magically appears, as kunthi wished, and blesses her with Arjuna (with kavasa & kundala, of course). Kuthi then decides to leave him float along the sacred river Ganga.
  2. This one also goes to Kunthi. She requests karna for 2 boons.
    1. Hand over his kavasa & kundala
    2. And to use the bramahastira only once.

That’s not fair, by any means.

  1. The third was by lord Krishna. They big guy lowers height of the surface of earth by stamping on it, and thereby saving Krishna who is eventually gonna be a tool to kill karna. Well, that’s not warfare. I mean, shifting the position of the earth is by no means, warfare.
  2. This is again by lord Krishna. Even after shot by arjuna’s arrow, karna does not die. His deeds have been saving him. But lord Krishna disguises as a begger and begs for his karma that was accumulated for his good deeds. And Karna even does that.

In addition to these things, karna also gets lots of curses for his guru, a Brahmin, the boomadevi, and a hadful of few others. So, what I see is not an arrow that killed him. But curses of those people and 4 highly damaging betrayal by both his mom and a god. It took this much of betrayals to bring down a warrior. So do you still think that karna was defeated? Think again…

  1. Smartboy Says:

    He was a great warrior, but can’t be labelled as the greatest warrior.

    He was obviously far better than Duryodhan and his brothers.

    Thats why Duryodhan saw a prospective warrior to counter Pandavas.

    Duryodhan could matched Bhima only in mace fighting and not in other aspects of combat.
    And he was hopeless against Arjun.

    So he was always looking for someone to counter Pandavas.

    Karna defeated many notable warriors during Vijay yatra.

    But he didn’t live upto his image during Kurukshetra war .

    He was inconvenienced many times.
    Very poor show during Kurushetra war.
