Karna (Devanāgari: कर्ण) is the central protagonist of the Hindu epic Mahabharata. He was the greatest archer in the epic and had the highest achievements more than any other warrior in his military career. He alone conquered the world on a single chariot. He fought against the Pandavas (his brothers) as a friend of Duryodhana, he fought on his behalf against the Pandavas in the Kurukshetra War.



K. M. Ganguli, tr. in: The Mahabharata of Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa. Published between 1883 and 1896

  • O Duryodhana, all of us seek to accomplish thy will and, O king, I see that unanimity at present prevaileth among us! The sons of Pandu, with passions under complete control, will never return without passing away the promised period. If, however, they do return from failing sense, do thou defeat them again at dice.
