- Vidur & Vyasa tell a few parables to help Dhrtarastra pull himself together. When the king is finally pacified, he leads all the bereaved women of Hastinapur in a great procession to deal with their fallen men. They march along the banks of the Ganga to Kurukshetra, where they encounter Ashwatthaman, Krpa & Krtavarman, who are still on the run after killing the Pandava's sons & allies.
Ashwatthaman heads of to Vyasa's ashram, Krpa goes home to Hastinapur, and Krtavarman also heads for home.
The procession later meets up with the Pandavas, fresh from Ashwatthaman's downfall, and together they proceed to the battlefield. Following the great cremation, a memorial is conducted on the banks of the Ganga. Kunti joins in and tells her sons to honor their fallen brother-- this is the first time the Pandavas were told they had a brother!
