Or that Shakuni was a valiant warrior on the battlefield?
How did Iravan, the son of Arjuna by Naga Princess Ulupi, rout the whole Gandhara armies all by himself?
And how did the ageing king Bhagadatta, perched on his famed elephant Supratika, defeat a whole army of the Pandavas led by Bhima?
Loyal. Valiant. Steadfast.
They were all that and more.
They secured crucial victories.
They were indispensable.
And yet, there were forgotten.
