I would have to say Abhimanyu
because,
1, he was only 14,
2, he had a young pregnant wife,
3, he was the son of none other than our Arjun,
4, he was killed unethically because all of the Kauravas basically ganged up on him.

^^ Yes, same here. It was a tough choice between Ghatotkach and Abhimanyu, because both sacrificed their lives at such a young age (Ghatotkach was a lot older than Abhimanyu, but still too young to die). In the end, I went with Abhimanyu because his death was so humiliating and unethical. Ghatotkacha's death was more heroic. Don't get me wrong, I think even Abhimanyu was very heroic, but Ghatokach died in dignity. He and Karna faced only each other and Karna did not kill him unethically. He knew he was going to die beforehand (he purposefully fought with Karna just so the latter could use his Shakti) and he accepted death like an old friend (to quote Harry Potter, lol)...his death really made me respect him more than being sad, while Abhimanyu's death was just wrong in every way. He never had the chance to fight back with dignity, and he was humiliated and treated lower than a servant before dying.

None, according to me. They all played their parts extremely well and departed precisely the way they should have.Tongue

Yes, I also agree with this.Clap Thinking from a humanistic perspective, we feel saddened by the deaths but if we think in a higher level, all happened as it should have.

I disagree w/ some of the choices on offer - Bheeshma, Drona, Karna and Duryodhan.  Very strongly, particularly Duryodhan.  Yeah, one might complain about them being unfairly defeated/killed, but that doesn't make it sad.  What was sad was warriors like Shalya who wanted to fight for the Pandavas being tricked into being dutybound to join the Kauravas instead Angry
 
Anyway, in the list above, I'd have had, in addition to Abhimanyu, Ghatotkacha and Draupadi's sons, Virat's sons Uttar, Sveta and Sangha and Satyaki's 10 sons (killed by Bhurishrava).  All b'cos they were so young, and in the case of Virat, there were no successors.  Sangha was killed by Drona while he was carrying his father to safety - he wasn't even fighting.
 
If I had to include any Kauravas @ all, it would be Vikarna, Gandhari's son who had protested Draupadi's insults but didn't switch sides like Yuyutsu, and was killed by Bhima on day 14.  Oh, and Karna's son Vrishasena, who was killed by Arjun in a manner similar to Kumbhakarna - first his bow was broken, then his arms severed, and finally his head.
 
I actually am more upset @ Ashwatthama and Kripa surviving the war, and Kripa going on to be re-instated as the Guru of Hastinapur, instead of being stripped of his ranks and exiled.  That's the least he deserved, assuming that as a Brahmin, he couldn't be executed in a civilian set-up.
 
As for my vote, I'd vote Abhimanyu, since he left a 13 year old pregnant widow, and later a son who never knew his father.

My vote goes to Abhimanyu becuase the way he was killed was wrong in every way. He never got the chance to fight back but he was just dragged in...It was unethical in every way!!!

Abhimanyu death was the most sadest one.

Apart dat he was only 14 and had a pregnant wife Uttra b'coz when u go on for a war death is a part of it,
but the kauravs had violated all the rules and regulation of the war to kill Abhimanyu not only the war rules but also a warriors rule not to attack on a unarmed person.
It this Guru Dronacharya who had himself taught the Yudhniyams to the kaurav pandavs had also forgot about the teachings.
But yes after his death only the real war started.
