PROMISE FULFILLED

THE chariot of Arjuna thundered on its way, seeming to shake the earth. The hearts of the Kauravas quaked when they heard the twang of the Gandiva bow.

"Our army must be arrayed well and with care. Arjuna, has come," said Drona anxiously. Duryodhana did not at all like the honour Drona did Arjuna by this anxiety.

He said to Karna: "The Pandavas' pledge was that they would spend twelve years in the forest and the following year undiscovered.

The thirteenth year has not ended yet. Arjuna has revealed himself before the time. Why then should we give way to fear?

The Pandavas will have to go again to' the forest for another twelve years. Drona is suffering from the cold feet of the too learned. Let us leave him in the rear and advance to the battle."

Karna assented and said: "Our soldiers' heart is not in the fight and they are trembling with fear. They say that the man, who stands so proudly, bow in hand, on the chariot, speeding towards us, is Arjuna.
