Here's a new thread to infuse some excitement into the forum. The purpose of initiating this thread is three fold-

  1. The PH of  this serial seems to have abandoned the authentic stories of Krishna as narrated in our scriptures.
  2. There are hardly any participants left in the forum - thanks to (1) above.
  3. To have some fun and at the same time enhance our knowledge
Basically, this is a simple question - answer quiz game. Whoever answers correctly first, gets to set the next question. The questions should be primarily on Krishna / Dwapara Yuga ; we can however also include other mythological questions.

Ok here's the first question (very simple) - 

Who was the rishi who cursed Parikshit to die on the seventh day?

Shrungi.  Actually, the rishi on whom Parikshit put a dead snake was Shamika, and Shrungi, his son, cursed him for doing it.  Shamika was observing a vow of silence, which is why he couldn't answer Parikshit's request for directions.

Fantastic thread started, Varaali - I'm gluing it!  Debi, Shivang and others, please join in.

From Parikshit to his father...

Contrary to popular belief, Abhimanyu was not killed by the warriors who jointly attacked him from different sides: he was killed by a single warrior in a mace duel.  Who was that warrior? (Extra points for getting his name)

Is it given anywhere that Rishi Shamik was observing a vow of silence? Because, it says in SB that when Shamik opened his eyes and heard about his son's curse, he scolded his son for his rash action.

I recall reading about this from an ACK Parikshit - would have to check on what MB actually says.    At any rate, Shamik had the conversation w/ his son after his vow of silence was completed.
