This chapter is considered as “Dejection of Arjun”.
This chapter starts with naming of both Kaurav and Pandav Army warriors by Duryodhan (Head of Kaurav Army) to his Guru Dronacharya. As Duryodhan was listing the warriors of Kaurav Army, General in Chief of Kaurav Army, Gallant Bheeshm blew his conch. Immediately all warriors of both armies blew their Conch Shells.
Arjun then asked Lord Shreekrishn to take his chariot forward so that he could see the Kaurav warriors. As the chariot moved ahead Arjun saw his Grandsire, his Guru, Cousins, uncles, many relatives and friends ready to fight against him. The thought that he would have to kill all those near and dear ones totally dejected Arjun. He shared his fear about dreadful result of killing own people.
Arjun put down his bow and arrows and sat down in chariot nervously.
