Karan & Draupadi love story
Getting over your ex-lover can be really hard for some people and in such a situation, even if you agree into marriage with someone else, there can be rebounds.
While this condition is quite common in many relationships today, you’ll be surprised to know that Karna from Mahabharata dealt with a similar problem and sadly, never came out of it. Unfortunately, there were no counsellors in those times.
His love story begins at Draupadi's swayamvar. Draupadi always longed for a husband who was wise, kind, strong, handsome and a good archer. And Karna was the only one with all these qualities. In fact, according to certain legends, when Draupadi saw Karna for the first time, she was impressed by him.
However, she rejected him in the ‘Swayamvar’ because Lord Krishna intervened saying that was not a king. The reality, however, was revealed at the end of the epic. Karna was not only a king, but also more deserving than any other Pandavas who eventually married Draupadi.
As was his destiny, Draupadi married the Pandavas and Karna was insulted. He then married twice in his lifetime.
The following slides will tell you how he coped with this rejection and his two marriages....
