Views: 152244 Description: Watch Draupadi's Swayamvar
Drupada intended to wed his daughter to Arjuna. Upon hearing of the Pandavas'
supposed death at Varnavata, he set up a Swayamvara contest for Draupadi to choose
her husband from the competitive contest.
 At the Swayamvara, almost all
the assorted monarchs were unable to complete the challenge.There are at
most three primary variations regarding Karna's participation. The popular
rendition shows Draupadi refusing to marry Karna on account of being a
Suta, some versions describe him missing the target by the "breadth of a
hair", while others do not present his participation in the event at all.The
Critical Edition of Mahabharat
 compiled by Bhandarkar Oriental
 has officially identified the Draupadi's rejection as a
later insertion into the text. It is ambiguous, however, whether Karna failed
or didn't participate at all.
