Sanjaya:

Sanjaya: Seeing the army of the Pandavas, King Duryodhana (Bhagavad Gita)

2- Seeing the army of the Pandavas ready for war, King Duryodhan approached his teacher Drone saying:

3- Look, O teacher, at this mighty army of the sons of Pandu, arranged in formation by the son of Drupada, your wise disciple.

4- There are brave archers, equal in fighting to Bhima and Arjuna: Yuyudhana and Virata, and the great Maharatha Drupada.

5- Dhrishtaketu, Chekitana, the brave Kashiraja, Purujit the Kuntibhoja and Shaibya, chief among men

6- The brave Yudhamanyu, the brave Uttamaujas, son of Subhadra and the sons of Draupadi, all of them “Maharathas”.

7- Know now, O best of Brahmins, the most distinguished among ours. For your information, I mention the names of the captains of my army.

8- Thyself, Bhishma, Karna and Kripa, victorious in battle, Ashvatthaman, Vikarna, also the son of Somadatta.

9. There are many other heroes, known for their skill in handling various weapons, they promised to give their lives for me, and they are all experts in war.

10. Our forces, commanded by Bhishma, are totally insufficient; while theirs, commanded by Bhima, are quite adequate.

11. Therefore, let each one of you, occupying the places designated by him, at each entrance, protect Bhishma alone.

12. At this the heroic great lord, the great elder of the Kurus, uttered a loud lion's roar and blew his conch shell to encourage Duryodhana.

13. Immediately afterwards, conch shells, drums, cymbals and trumpets sounded at the same time. The noise was terrifying.

14. Then Madhava (Krishna) and Pandava (Arjuna), standing in their great war chariot with white steeds, blew their divine conch shells.

15. Hrishikesha (Krishna) blew the Panchajanya (conch) and Dhananjaya (Arjuna) the Devadatta; while Bhima, he of fearful terrifying acts, blew his great conch shell Of him Paundra.
