One thing I read on RF, which is hearsay, or more specifically readsay, is that Indumati was an apsara avatar, and so when a flower fell on her head, she died and was taken away, and Ajay then did what you described.  Dunno that I'd call that a 'separation'.  At any rate, I have no idea whether this took place due to any curse on Aja.

I did some research on the immortality of Ashwatthama and Kripacharya - mostly articles that were part of different organizations and temples' monthly mailers that they put up as PDFs, not primary sources - but there was a general consensus they all shared, so I'm guessing that's what would be found in the primary sources (didn't have time to read them yet - these articles, otoh, were only 10-12 pgs long LOL)... it is as follows:
Ashwatthama's immortality was a curse from Krishna after he tried to get Parikshit aborted - until then he had that mani on his forehead that offered protection from disease and vicious attacks, but not absolute immortality. Kripacharya's immortality was also bestowed by Krishna, but as a boon because he apparently proved to be most impartial of the Kuru gurus (not sure how that can be reconciled with his support or at least tolerance of Ashwatthama killing the junior Pandavs, though). It was also to ensure that he would be around to guide Parikshit as well as the remaining members of the Chandra Vansh upon Kaliyug's arrival. Here are some of those write-ups:

Note that for Ramayan, the Ramayan forum has re-opened, while in the new Dwarakadeesh forum, an old thread about the doubts & discussions of the Dwapar Yuga has been moved there.  So now you have
 
 
 
So until these threads freeze or the forum/s close, I suggest using this thread for everything outside Ramayan & Mahabharat, although it's okay if discussion of something segways into something that falls within these.
 
Lola can advise whether Greek, Norse or Roman mytho questions can be entertained here LOL  Too bad we don't know much about Aztecs & Incas.

Okay, I have a question.
 
In Ramayan, each chapter is called a Kand, which is further divided into sargs.
 
In Mahabharat, what you have is parvas.
 
What are the differences?

I cannot say properly Vrish, but I think the difference lies in the theme of the two Epics. Ramayan i.e. "Ram's Journey" is a rather personal tale of Prince Ram and so its divided into Kands i.e. occurrences in Ram's life. While Mahabharat is a large spectrum political drama spanning 5-6 generations involving most major kingdoms of Aryavarta. Hence its divided into Parvas ie ages or time-spans. If Mahabharat is divided in Kands, then there will be atleast 1000 Kands as unlike Ramayan, Mahabharat has no single central character.Smile

You know, untill quite recently, I used to read it as 'Khand' aka part or chapters.LOL

But there are very few parvas @ the beginning - Sabha-parva is the second.  But for each of the Kaurava commanders during the war, they had different Parvas, like Bheeshma-parva, Drona-parva, Karna-parva, Shalya-parva & Sauptika-parva.  For Adi parva, one would have thought that there would be several parts to it - say Santanu-parva, Vichitravirya-parva, Pandu-parva, and then parvas for the time before the house of wax (say Dhritarashtra parva), an Indraprastha-parva, then the Sabha-parva & van-parva.  But Adi-parva seems too broad, but after the Shalya-parva, Vyasa seems to get parva-happy and have one for the women lamenting, the Ashwamedha yagna, the fracticide in Dwaraka, etc.  Doesn't seem even.
 
I asked in the Ramayan Doubts & Discussions thread similar questions about the way the chapters were split up.  Here too, the first 3 didn't seem evenly done.
