VIDURA

VIDURA was the third brother of Dhritarashtra, Pandu being the second.

It is said that God Dharma himself took birth in the form of Vidura. In the whole of Mahabharata, Vidura’s is the voice of reason and wisdom.

As an uncle and cider, he loved the Kauravas and the Pandavas equally and always worked for their good.

He was a minister to his brother Dhritarashtra, yet he lived the life of a poor man; for he never cared for riches. He married a  Poor woman.

Once while playing, the young Kauravas poisoned Bhima, bound him, threw him into the Ganga and went home, thinking he would die.

Not seeing Bhima return, Kunti, his mother, was alarmed and reported this to Vidura.  Vidura calmed her saying: "Please do not worry. Your children are divine. No harm will befall Bhima. He will return safe."
