# As Fighter And Fought - Lord Krishna

Rating: 4.0

[A scene from the hindu epic Mahabharatham
where both duryodhan and arjun come to lord
krishna for favors to sopport them in the war

Arjun sat near foot
duryodhan sat near his head
god in deep slumber

a war approaching
with a request both waited
god in deep slumber

Krishna wakes to see
arjun first and with a smile
'what is your request'?

he came before me
ask his request first then me
arjuna told god

turning his head to see.......

'duryodhan here too
may i know your request too'
krishna waits to hear

we need your support
you should help us in the war
duryodhan's request

krishna to duryodhan......

you may have come first
i asked arjun's request first
i shall help you both

thinking for a moment......

'duryodhan' he said
'you can have all my soldiers
whole of my army'

to arjun he said
you and your brother's have me
not as warrior

further krishna went on
i will not handle weapon
not as warrior

will be there for you
to take you around war field
as charioteer

duryodhan content
thought army was big asset
thought he got best deal

arjun content too
to have god as charoiteer
thought he got good deal

though god pleased them both
it was a war where he was
both fighter and fought

as charioteer
convinced a confused arjun
with the song of lord [BHAGAVATH GEETHAI]
