Dushasana - Second Kaurava


दुःशासन

Dushasana is the second of the Kauravas, the sons of Dhritharashtra. His evil is second only to that of his elder brother Duryodhana. He also hated the Pandavas and was jealous of their triumphs. He is best know for the incident of "disrobing Draupadi".

For this act, Bheema had vowed vengeance, taking an oath that he would "Break Dushasana into two and drink his blood." Bheema fulfilled his vow in the great battle of Kurukshetra.
