- The brothers formally come out of hiding, and thick-headed Virata finally realizes he has been sheltering the famous Pandavas. To avoid any question of scandal, Virata's daughter is quickly married to Arjun's son, Abhimanyu. The allies are summoned for the wedding, and the brothers set up a temporary headquarters at Virata's second city, Upaplavya.
This ends the book of Virata. Next time, we'll start the Udyoga Parva-- the Book of the Effort.
