About Daanveer Karna…the unwanted one : A Brief Outline of the play

while Kunti was young, had occasion to serve Rishi Durvasha. She looked after him with great dedication. Durvasha was highly pleased and gave Kunti a mantra(chant) and said that whichever God she would think of after reciting the mantra, would appear and bless her with his qualities. Just to check the Mantra, she start praying SUN and SUN appeared, Kunti got scared and wanted the Sun God to go away, but he pleaded his helplessness against the power of mantra. Surya however assured Kunti that even after being blessed with a son, she would still remain a. And Karna was born with kavach and kundal (armor which would make him invincible). Kunti was nevertheless afraid of social stigma and she put Karna in a basket and placed the same in the Ganges river, the basket was seen by Adhirath, a charioteer. He picked up the baby and brought him up. That is why Karna is also sometimes referred to as Sarathiputra. Parshuram accepted Karna as student. Duryodhana and Shakuni were jealous and sworn enemies of their cousins, the Pandava brothers. Duryodhana made Karna the king of Angadesh.  Duryodhan, in fact, built him up as a counterweight to Arjuna. Karna was against the Lakshagrah, Cheerharan and always preferring to fight in the field as all were great warriors. But Shakuni was not agree with him at all. Later, he came to know through lord Krishna that he is son of Kunti and elder brother of Pandavas, But he didn’t turned back. One day while Karna was prying SUN, Lord Indra came and asked for Karna’s Kavach and Kundal, which were parts of his body since birth and which made him invincible.  Lord Indra was taken aback at Karna's capacity to give away anything asked for.  He said, Karna, what you have done today, no ordinary mortal could have done. At the Kurukshetra battle, the wheel of his chariot sank in soft earth and he was immobilized.  At that time, Arjuna defeated him.  That was the end of Karna, one of the greatest warriors of Mahabharata who was also the greatest Daanveer.  A man who would never refuse the request for any gift or donation, howsoever costly that might be and irrespective of the consequences of giving to his own well being or security.
