KARNA

KARNA is a great hero of Mahabharata War.

The word Karna means ear. Since he was born with Kundalas or ear ornaments, he was known as Karna.

Kunti, his mother, was a young girl at that time. She had not married.

Rishi Durvasa came to her house and taught her a mantra.

He said: "If you say this mantra to any God, he will give you a son."

Kunti became curious.

Just to test the efficacy of the mantra, she said it to the Sun God.

Lo! The Sun God appeared and gave her the child Karna.

Kunti at once became afraid. Unknowns to anyone else she put the young child in a basket and sent it down a river.
