Mahabharata (R. Govinda)
by R. Govinda
Arjuna pulled the string of his bow making a tumultuous sound that immediately quietened the rowdy crowd. Draupadi’s heartbeat quickened seeing the young, handsome and determined Brahmin walk towards the pond. His hair was pulled back and tied in a bun showing all the masculine features of his face. His arms were long and muscular and his chest was broad.
Pulling his hands together in respect, he bowed to the elders and then bowed to Krishna. There was pin-drop silence as Arjuna fixed an arrow in the bow, and looking down into the pond, deep in concentration, Arjuna pierced the eye of the fish with a single shot.
