Mahabharata war Kurukshetra
The world's biggest war was the Kurukshetra war of Mahabharata. Such a fierce war had happened only once in history.
It is estimated that nuclear weapons were also used in the Kurukshetra war of Mahabharata. 'Chakra' means 'wheel' and 'Vyuha' means 'formation'. Chakravyuha is a rotating array like a wheel.
The most dangerous battle system of Kurukshetra war was Chakravyuh. Although today's modern world is also ignorant of battle mechanisms like Chakravyuh. It was impossible to pierce the Chakravyuh or the Padmavyuh.
In Dwapara Yuga, only seven people knew how to pierce it. Apart from Lord Krishna, only Arjuna, Bhishma, Dranacharya, Karna, Ashwatthama and Pradyumna could pierce the Vyuha. Abhimanyu only knew how to enter the Chakravyuh.
There were seven layers in the Chakravyuha. The bravest soldiers were stationed in the innermost layer. These layers were made in such a way that the soldiers of the inner layer were physically and mentally stronger than the soldiers of the outer layer.
Infantry soldiers were stationed in the outermost layer. In the inner layer there used to be an army of elephants equipped with weapons.
The composition of the Chakravyuh was like a maze in which once the enemy got trapped, the cube became a circle.
In the Chakravyuh, the army of each layer used to rotate every moment like the fork of a clock. Due to this the person entering inside the array would stand inside and forget the way out. In the Mahabharata, Vyuha was composed by Guru Dranacharya.
Chakravyuh was considered to be the best military swamp of the era. This array was formed only to make Yudhishthira captive. It is believed that the battle took place at a place called Kurukshetra in an area of 48×128 km, in which the number of soldiers participating was 1.8 million!
Chakravyuh was also called the spinning wheel of death. Because once he went inside this view, he could never come out. Like the Earth, it used to rotate in its axis, as well as every layer also revolved around it. For this reason, the exit gate was changed all the time in a different direction which confused the enemy. The wonderful and unimaginable battle system was Chakravyuh.
Even today's modern world cannot adopt such a complicated and unusual battle system in war.
You will be surprised to know that according to the music or the sound of the conch, the soldiers of Chakravyuh could change their position. No commander or soldier could change his position of his own free will. Amazing unimaginable.
Just imagine how intelligent those who adopted deadly warfare techniques like Chakravyuh a thousand years ago must have been.Chakravyuh was like a storm that blew away everything in its path and destroyed it like a straw.
Abhimanyu knew how to enter inside the Yaudha but did not know how to get out. Because of this, the Kauravas had killed Abhimanyu by deceit. It is believed that the formation of Chakravyuh made the enemy army so psychologically and mentally debilitated that thousands of enemy soldiers lost their lives in an instant.
Except for Krishna, Arjuna, Bhishma, Dhronacharya, Karna, Ashwatthama and Pradyumna, no one had the strategy to get out of the Chakravyuha.
It is not a common subject to constitute such a scientifically disciplined strategy even centuries ago. In the war of Mahabharata, Chakravyuha was formed three times, in one of which Abhimanyu died. Only by the grace of Krishna, Arjuna had killed Jayadratha by piercing the Chakravyuh. We should be proud that we belong to that country, in which amazing demonstration of science and technology of centuries ago is seen.
Undoubtedly, Chakravyuh was neither a past nor a future warfare technique. No one has seen it in the past and no one will be able to see it in the future.
