Sanjaya uvācha, “Abhimanyu is equal to Sakshat Bhagawan Shree Krishna in valour and is proficient in the art of war and is competent to slaughter the warriors of the enemy. When he penetrates/enters the army of the enemy like thunder through a torrent/shower of arrows, then Duryodhana, son of Dhrutharashtra will be tormented by this war.
Whilst the son of Subadra is still a boy in age, his valour is equal to the young people. He is as powerful as Indra and is accomplished/adept in the art of war. When he attacks the army of the enemy like the ghastly time, then Duryodhana will be filled with remorse for starting a war.
When the valorous youthful leader of Prabhadraka who displays quickness in handling weapons and is a master in war likened to a lion along with his army chases the sons of Dhrutharashtra to their deaths, then Duryodhana will regret thinking why he instigated this war?
When the aged maharathi King Virat and Drupada along with their separate armies charge upon the enemy and their vision falls on the sons of Dhrutharashtra along with their soldiers, then Duryodhana will have to repent on thinking about the outcome of the war.
When King Drupada who is accomplished in the art of war becomes angry and sits on the chariot and singling them out cuts of the heads of the young people with the arrows released from his bow on the battleground, then Duryodhana will be filled with remorse over this war.
