Who was the wife of Duryodhana
Many people know about Duryodhana, but do you know with whom Duryodhana was married and what was the name of Duryodhana’s wife. Let us tell you that Duryodhana’s wife’s name was Bhanumati. Bhanumati was the daughter of King Chandravarma of Kamboj. Along with being proficient in many arts, she was also beautiful, attractive and intelligent. Bhanumati’s father announced Swayamvara for her marriage. Kings and emperors from far and wide and more than one stalwart participated in this Swayamvar. Shishupala, Jarasandha, Rukmi, Vakra, Duryodhana and Karna also participated in Swayamvar.
Bhanumati started moving forward with garland for Swayamvar. Duryodhana was fascinated by the beautiful form of Bhanumati. But Bhanumati’s attention did not fall on Duryodhana and she started moving forward with the garland. Then Duryodhana himself forcibly put the garland around his neck from Bhanumati’s hands and made Bhanumati his wife.
Duryodhana and Bhanumati had two children
Bhanumati gave birth to two twin children from Duryodhana. The son’s name was Lakshmana and the daughter’s name was Lakshmana. Lakshmana was killed by Abhimanyu in the Mahabharata war and daughter Lakshmana was married to Lord Krishna’s son Samba born from Jambavanti.
This phrase is named after Pandora
‘Somewhere a brick, somewhere a stone, Pandora added a family’. This proverb in the name of Bhanumati is still said in the city and village. Actually this saying was made because Bhanumati herself did not choose Duryodhana as her husband. Rather, Duryodhana had forcibly married Bhanumati with the help of Karna in Swayamvar. Duryodhana and Bhanumati’s daughter Lakshmana was abducted by Krishna’s son Samba. For this reason this saying was made, which is still prevalent today
