With Arjuna as his father and Krishna's sister, Subhadra as his mother, Abhimanyu could have well been overshadowed. But his courage, in single-handedly facing the Kaurava army, makes him one of the greatest figures in the Mahabharata. Ghatotkacha is one of the finest characters in the epic. Affectionate and kind, this son of Bheema and the demoness, Hidimba, proves to be an asset to the Pandavas on the battlefield of Kurukshetra. Arjuna meets and marries the Naga princess, Uloopi, during his exile. She wields a great influence on Babhruhavana, the son of Arjuna and Chitrangada.
