In the Tamil version, she is known as Kaamavalli. How is she better known as? 


Shurpanakha?

I think in the Sanskrit version, her name is Kaamaroopini.

Shoorpanakha is correct. As per Kamban, Shoorpanakha assumes the form of a beautiful woman and introduces herself to Rama as Kamavalli.

Vibhishana- your question next.

Yes, you're right Varaali. There is a specific name for the goddess because she is forever 16 - Shodashi. The other names of the same goddess are Tripurasundari and Kumari or Kanya Kumari.

The next question is yours...

Okay, here's the next one...

In whose care did Yudhisthir leave both Parikshit and Vajra when the Pandavas decided to retire following the Yadava fratricide?


Was it Yuyutsu? As far as I know Kripa and Satyaki died during the Yadu destruction...

Answer here is Subhadra.  Yuyutsu was made the mayor of Hastinapur, from what I recall.  While he did have a regent's role, he did not have any influence on Vajra.

Yudhisthir left Subhadra in charge of both Parikshit & Vajra.

Hi I'm new here, I just joined this forum recently. I'm a great fan of Mahabharata. Its complexities and twists and turns excite me. It is surprising, enthralling and fresh. So I want to throw a quiz on the topic not just to see how much you know but also to get different info on different questions.

So let's start!

1. How many parva's (sections) is Mahabharata divided into?
2. What does 'Hastinapur' literally mean? Who founded Hastinapur?
3. Which kingdom is Kunti originally from? What is her real name?
4. Who wrote Mahabharata?
5. Who was Shantanu's father?
6. Bhishma in his previous birth was a Vasu. What was his name then? 
7. Kunti got her 'mantras' from which rishi?
8. Who was Satyavati's father? 
9. Why was Chitrangad (Vichitraveerya's elder brother) killed?
10. What was Mahabharata's original name? 
11. Gandhari was the daughter of which King?

I think that's all for now...more questions after these are answered...Smile
Hope you like!!! 

I have Copy- pasted Bhaarya's questions here. Knowledgeable members please answer.
