They lost no more time but drove quickly to where Bhagadatta was doing
havoc. As soon as Arjuna's car was seen, the Pandava forces rallied and soon Arjuna
reached the lines where Bhagadatta was.
Bhagadatta attacked Arjuna on Supratika like the Destroyer incarnate.
But Vasu- deva's skill avoided the shock, each time the beast charged.
Bhagadatta showered arrows on Arjuna and Krishna. But Arjuna's arrows
broke the elephant's armour and began to hurt the beast. Bhagadatta saw that his elephant
could no longer stand the attack and he hurled a javelin at Krishna.
Arjuna met it with a shaft from his bow and broke it into two.
Bhagadatta then dis- charged another javelin which struck Dhananjaya's helmet.
Readjusting his helmet, Arjuna bent his bow exclaiming:
"Bhagadatta, take your last look at the world and prepare for death!"
