Now you are even further closer Varaali. Just one step more and you are there. Double closer than Semanti. Think about something even more common between all 4 names than being Pandav.

Arjun

Krishna too is one of Arjun's alternative names.  The reason Arjun is the odd one out is that that's the only primary name of any of the Pandavas.  The others are all secondary names of Arjun, Bhima & Yudhisthir (I believe Bharat was one of Yudhisthir's other names, not Arjun's)

Now collect the answers of all 3 of you Vrish. You, Varaali and Sema. Put all the points together and get the answer. Every answer gets an inch closer to the previous answer it seems. Just a bit fine tune. I can't believe how excitingly close you people are!!!!!! You should get the answer now. On the edge. Just a millimeter away. OMG!!!! How thriller this round is!!!!

Vrikodara, since the others are all Arjun? (assuming Varaali is right about BhArat being Arjun, not Yudi)

P.S.  Anyone else can ask the next question - still not thought of anything good so far

Yes. That was the only answer left.Smile However, any other answer also could have been true with a different logic. But Vrikodar was precisely my answer with precisely same logic.

Krishna, Vijaya and Arjun are 3 out of 10 names of Arjun which he narrates to Uttara in Virat Parva.

Here is the abstract from Virat Parva (KMG):

"Arjuna said, 'I will, O son of Virata, tell thee my ten names. Listen thou and compare them with what thou hadst heard before. Listen to them with close attention and concentrated mind. They are Arjuna, Falguna, Jishnu, Kiritin, Swetavahana, Vibhatsu, VijayaKrishna, Savyasachin and Dhananjaya." 

Some of the google results show the name PArth in the above 10 names instead of Krishna but the above one is accurate as per KMG and also the same are there in BRC MB.

BhArat (Bhaarat)Smile means Bharatvanshi which was popular name of Arjun even though all Pandavas and Kauravas were BhArat only. It is like Yudhishthir, Bhim and Arjun all were Pritha's sons. All were PArth but only Arjun's name was PArth (Paarth). Krishna and Balram both were VAsudev (Vaasudev) but only Krishna was popularly known by that name. RLBS and Dashrath all were RAghavs (Raaghavs), but RAghav was the name of Ramchandraji only. His surname became his famous name.

BhArat name is very often used for Arjun by Krishna in Geeta. One famous verse is from the title song of BRC MB only (Adhyay 4): Yada yada hi dharmasya glaanir bhavati Bhaarat...

Here is wiki link:

Other names of Arjuna

  1. Parth (scholar student, son of Prutha - other name of Kunti).
  2. Jishnu (the Irrepressible, Unconquerable)
  3. Kiriti (He who wears the Shining Diadem, which was gifted by Indra)
  4. Shvethavahana (one of Shining Steeds: He whose chariot is drawn by white horses)
  5. Bheebhatsu (the Fair Fighter: Terrifying to behold in battle)
  6. Vijaya (the Victorious) also Jaya (Victory)
  7. Phalguna (one born under the auspicious asterism "Uttara Phalguna")
  8. Savyasaachi (The ambidextrous one, capable of working a bow with either hand)
  9. Dhananjaya (winner of Great Wealth)
  10. Gandeevi (the owner of Gandeeva, his bow)
  11. Krishna (the dark-skinned one, named by Pandu out of his admiration of Krishna)
  12. Gudaakesha (conqueror of sleep, given in childhood itself, after he started practising archery skills in the dead of night)
  13. Kaunteya (Son of Kunti)
  14. Parangam (Capable)
  15. Mahabahu (He whose arms are mighty)
  16. Pandava (Son of Pandu)
  17. Permadi/Janaka in his youth (Java, Indonesia)
  18. Bhaarata Scion of an ancient Indian king by the same name (one of righteous birth)


And the meaning of Vrikodar - The one with large tummy - capable of eating huge chunk of food - Bhim's name (particularly we can relate it to Ekchakra nagari parakram).

Your turn next Vrish.

 I don't think we have thanked Vrish and Shivang for having come up with this exciting game. Clap

Just think- if conjuring questions itself it so hard, how difficult it would have been to  compile this game in the first place . I know a lot of brain storming took place b/w these two - in terms of fine tuning the rules and scoring system . 

So Vrish and Shivang, three cheers ...Thumbs Up  Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

@  Urmila11- Arjun's name during Agyatvaas was Brihannala. 


Varaali didi,

Yes I know that Arjun's name was Vrihannala at aggyatavaas, but there were another five names which were unknown to King Virat, & Yudhisthir fixed those names before entering into Virat kingdom. Those names were, Jaya, Jayanta, Vijaya, Jayasen & Jayadval, respectively of five Pandavas. Those names were known only to Pandavas & Draupadi, & they took another set of names for living in Virat nagar.When Upakichakas attacked Draupadi, she used those names to inform her husbands about her danger, so that King Virat could not recognize his workers as Draupadi's husbands.
