MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.1.118 And Dhritarashtra hearing the ill news of the success of the Pandavas and recollecting the resolutions of Duryodhana, Kama, and Sakuni, pondered for a while and addressed to Sanjaya the following speech, Attend, O Sanjaya, to all I am about to say, and it will not become thee to treat me with contempt.
Mbh.1.2.378 The subjects of this parva are the establishment of the grand hall by the Pandavas; their review of their retainers; the description of the lokapalas by Narada well-acquainted with the celestial regions; the preparations for the Rajasuya sacrifice; the destruction of Jarasandha; the deliverance by Vasudeva of the princes confined in the mountain-pass; the campaign of universal conquest by the Pandavas; the arrival of the princes at the Rajasuya sacrifice with tribute; the destruction of Sisupala on the occasion of the sacrifice, in connection with offering of arghya; Bhimasena's ridicule of Duryodhana in the assembly; Duryodhana's sorrow and envy at the sight of the magnificent scale on which the arrangements had been made; the indignation of Duryodhana in consequence, and the preparations for the game of dice; the defeat of Yudhishthira at play by the wily Sakuni; the deliverance by Dhritarashtra of his afflicted daughter-in-law Draupadi plunged in the sea of distress caused by the gambling, as of a boat tossed about by the tempestuous waves.
Mbh.1.2.382 Then comes the third parva called Aranyaka relating to the forest This parva treats of the wending of the Pandavas to the forest and the citizens, following the wise Yudhishthira, Yudhishthira's adoration of the god of day; according to the injunctions of Dhaumya, to be gifted with the power of maintaining the dependent Brahmanas with food and drink: the creation of food through the grace of the Sun: the expulsion by Dhritarashtra of Vidura who always spoke for his master's good; Vidura's coming to the Pandavas and his return to Dhritarashtra at the solicitation of the latter; the wicked Duryodhana's plottings to destroy the forest-ranging Pandavas, being incited thereto by Karna; the appearance of Vyasa and his dissuasion of Duryodhana bent on going to the forest; the history of Surabhi; the arrival of Maitreya; his laying down to Dhritarashtra the course of action; and his curse on Duryodhana; Bhima's slaying of Kirmira in battle; the coming of the Panchalas and the princes of the Vrishni race to Yudhishthira on hearing of his defeat at the unfair gambling by Sakuni; Dhananjaya's allaying the wrath of Krishna; Draupadi's lamentations before Madhava; Krishna's cheering her; the fall of Sauva also has been here described by the Rishi; also Krishna's bringing Subhadra with her son to Dwaraka; and Dhrishtadyumna's bringing the son of Draupadi to Panchala; the entrance of the sons of Pandu into the romantic Dwaita wood; conversation of Bhima, Yudhishthira, and Draupadi; the coming of Vyasa to the Pandavas and his endowing Yudhishthira with the power of Pratismriti; then, after the departure of Vyasa, the removal of the Pandavas to the forest of Kamyaka; the wanderings of Arjuna of immeasurable prowess in search of weapons; his battle with Mahadeva in the guise of a hunter; his meeting with the lokapalas and receipt of weapons from them; his journey to the regions of Indra for arms and the consequent anxiety of Dhritarashtra; the wailings and lamentations of Yudhishthira on the occasion of his meeting with the worshipful great sage Brihadaswa.
Mbh.1.2.462 Here also is the death of Sakuni in battle at the hands of Sahadeva.
Mbh.1.57.2822 Now hear the names I mention, in order, of those snakes endued with the speed of the wind and with virulent poison, born in the race of Dhritarashtra: Sankukarna, Pitharaka, Kuthara, Sukhana, and Shechaka; Purnangada, Purnamukha, Prahasa, Sakuni, Dari, Amahatha, Kumathaka, Sushena, Vyaya, Bhairava, Mundavedanga, Pisanga, Udraparaka, Rishabha, Vegavat, Pindaraka; Raktanga, Sarvasaranga, Samriddha, Patha and Vasaka; Varahaka, Viranaka, Suchitra, Chitravegika, Parasara, Tarunaka, Maniskandha and Aruni.
Mbh.1.61.2910 Then the wicked Duryodhana, guided by the counsels of Sakuni his maternal uncle, persecuted the Pandavas in various ways for the acquirement of undisputed sovereignty.
Mbh.1.63.3171 And from Suvala was born a son, Sakuni, who from the curse of the gods became the slayer of creatures and the foe of virtue.
Mbh.1.67.3499 And the mighty chariot-fighter and king who on earth was known by the name of Sakuni, that crusher of foes, thou shouldst know, O king, was Dwapara himself the third yuga.
Mbh.1.67.3523 And, O king, when the time came, the Kaurava monarch bestowed his daughter Duhsala on Jayadratha, the king of the Sindhus, agreeably to the counsels of Sakuni.
Mbh.1.110.6099 Sakuni, the son of Suvala, bringing unto the Kurus his sister endued with youth and beauty, formally gave her away unto Dhritarashtra.
Mbh.1.110.6101 And the heroic Sakuni, after having bestowed his sister along with many valuable robes, and having received Bhishma's adorations, returned to his own city.
Mbh.1.129.6961 Karna and Sakuni, without giving up their wicked design had recourse to numerous other contrivances for accomplishing the death of the Pandavas.
Mbh.1.143.7716 SECTION CXLIII Jatugriha Parva Vaisampayana said, Then the son of Suvala Sakuni, king Duryodhana, Duhsasana and Kama, in consultation with one another, formed an evil conspiracy.
Mbh.1.143.7744 Then Karna, the offspring of the Sun, and Sakuni, the son of Suvala, endeavoured by various means to compass the death of the Pandavas.
Mbh.1.144.7765 Then Duryodhana and Karna, and Sakuni, the son of Suvala, and Duhsasana as their fourth, held a consultation together.
Mbh.1.151.7962 Vidura, conversant with everything, hath again said, O son of Kunti, thou shalt surely defeat in battle Karna, and Duryodhana with his brothers, and Sakuni'
Mbh.1.153.8050 Else this very day, filled with wrath, I would send thee, O Duryodhana, to the regions of Yama Pluto with thy children and friends and brothers, and Karna, and Sakuni the son of Suvala!
Mbh.1.164.8495 Thou hast, O mother, by this abandonment of thy child, acted not only against the course of human practices but also against the teachings of the Vedas, That Bhima, relying on whose arms we sleep happily in the night and hope to recover the kingdom of which we have been deprived by the covetous son of Dhritarashtra, that hero of immeasurable energy, remembering whose prowess Duryodhana and Sakuni do not sleep a wink during the whole night and by whose prowess we were rescued from the palace of lac and various other dangers, that Bhima who caused the death of Purochana, and relying on whose might we regard ourselves as having already slain the sons of Dhritarashtra and acquired the whole earth with all her wealth, upon what considerations, O mother, hast thou resolved upon abandoning him?
Mbh.1.187.9420 Sakuni, Sauvala, Vrisaka, and Vrihadvala, these sons of the king Gandhara, have also come.
Mbh.1.201.9968 Accompanied by his brothers, Aswatthaman, his uncle Sakuni, Karna and Kripa the prince set out with a heavy heart for his capital.
Mbh.1.206.10190 Duryodhana and Karna and Sakuni, the son of Suvala, are sinful, foolish and young; listen not to them.
Mbh.2.33.1421 And Dhritarashtra and Bhishma and Vidura of high intelligence; and all Kaurava brothers with Duryyodhana at their head; and Suvala the king of Gandhara and Sakuni endued with great strength; and Achala, and Vrishaka, and Karna that foremost of all charioteers; and Salya endued with great might and the strong Valhika; and Somadatta, and Bhuri of the Kuru race, and Bhurisravas and Sala; and Aswatthama, Kripa, Drona, and Jayadratha, the ruler of Sindhu; and Yajnasena with his sons, and Salya that lord of earth and that great car warrior king Bhagadatta of Pragjyotisha accompanied by all Mlechcha tribes inhabiting the marshy regions on the sea-shore; and many mountain kings, and king Vrihadvala; and Vasudeva the king of the Paundrayas, and the kings of Vanga and Kalinga; and Akastha and Kuntala and the kings of the Malavas and the Andhrakas; and the Dravidas and the Singhalas and the king of Kashmira, and king Kuntibhoja of great energy and king Gauravahana, and all the other heroic kings of Valhika; and Virata with his two sons, and Mavella endued with great might; and various kings and princes ruling in various countries; and, O Bharata king Sisupala endued with great energy and invincible in battle accompanied by his son, all of them came to the sacrifice of the son of Pandu.
Mbh.2.43.1732 Passing over Bhishmaka of abundant energy, and king Dantavakra, and Bhagadatta known for his innumerable sacrificial stakes, and Jayatsena the king of the Magadha, and Virata and Drupada, and Sakuni and Vrihadvala, and Vinda and Anuvinda of Avant Pandya, Sweta Uttama Sankhya of great prosperity, the proud Vrishasena, the powerful Ekalavya, and the great charioteer Kalinga of abundant energy, why dost thou praise Kesava?
Mbh.2.44.1844 And, O king, after the chief of the Satwata race had gone to Dwaravati, king Duryodhana alone, with king Suvala's son, Sakuni, these bulls among men, continued to live in that celestial assembly house.
Mbh.2.45.1887 And, O ruler of men, king Duryodhana and Sakuni, the son of Suvala, continued to dwell in that delightful assembly house.
Mbh.2.46.1889 And with Sakuni, the Kuru prince slowly examined the whole of that mansion, and the Kuru prince beheld in it many celestial designs, which he had never seen before in the city called after the elephant Hastinapore.
Mbh.2.46.1909 And Sakuni, beholding him absent-minded, said, O Duryodhana, why art thou proceeding thus?
Mbh.2.47.1930 SECTION XLVII Sakuni said,
Mbh.2.47.1951 Sakuni replied, Dhananjaya and Vasudeva, Bhimasena and Yudhishthira, Nakula and Sahadeva and Drupada with his sons, these cannot be vanquished in battle by even the celestials, for they are all great warriors wielding the largest bows, accomplished in weapons, and delighting in battle.
Mbh.2.47.1955 Sakuni said, The son of Kunti is very fond of dice-play although he doth not know how to play.
Mbh.2.48.1965 SECTION XLVIII Vaisampayana said, O king, impressed with the great Rajasuya sacrifice of king Yudhishthira, Sakuni, the son of Suvala, having learnt before the intentions of Duryodhana, while accompanying him in the way from the assembly house, and desirous of saying what was agreeable to him, approached Dhritarashtra endued with great wisdom, and finding the monarch deprived of his eye seated in his throne, told him these words, Know, O great king, O bull of the Bharata race, that Duryodhana, having lost colour, hath become pale and emaciated and depressed and a prey to anxiety.
Mbh.2.48.1970 This Sakuni here says that thou hast lost colour, become pale and emaciated, and a prey to anxiety.
Mbh.2.48.2010 Hearing these words of Duryodhana, Sakuni replied, Hear how thou mayest obtain this unrivalled prosperity that thou beholdest in the son of Pandu, O thou that hast truth for thy prowess.
Mbh.2.48.2017 Vaisampayana continued, King Duryodhana, thus addressed by Sakuni, without allowing a moment to elapse, said unto Dhritarashtra, This, Sakuni, an adept at dice, is ready to win at dice, O king, the wealth of the sons of Pandu.
Mbh.2.55.2264 SECTION LV Sakuni said, O thou foremost of victorious persons, I will snatch for thee this prosperity of Yudhishthira, the son of Pandu, at the sight of which thou grievest so.
Mbh.2.55.2286 Let the words of Sakuni, therefore, be acceptable to thee, and let thy command be issued for the speedy construction of the assembly house.
Mbh.2.57.2339 Vidura said, O monarch, Sakuni, the king of Gandhara, an adept at dice, having great skill of hand and desperate in stakes, Vivingati, king Chitrasena, Satyavrata, Purumitra and Jaya, these, O king, are there'
Mbh.2.57.2347 Unwilling as I am to gamble, I will not do so, if the wicked Sakuni doth not summon me to it in the Sabha?
Mbh.2.58.2377 After they had taken their seats, as also all the kings, Sakuni the son of Suvala addressed Yudhishthira and said, O king, the assembly is full.
Mbh.2.58.2385 O Sakuni, vanquish us, not like a wretch, by deceitful means'
Mbh.2.58.2386 Sakuni said, That high-souled player who knoweth the secrets of winning and losing, who is skilled in baffling the deceitful arts of his confrere, who is united in all the diverse operations of which gambling consisteth, truly knoweth the play, and he suffereth all in course of it.
Mbh.2.58.2398 Do not, O Sakuni, playing desperately, win of us that wealth with which according to our abilities, we strive to learn how to benefit the Brahmanas.
Mbh.2.58.2402 Sakuni said, O Yudhishthira, it is from a desire of winning, which is not a very honest motive, that one high-born person approacheth another in a contest of race superiority.
Mbh.2.58.2420 And it is for me that this Sakuni, my uncle, will play'
Mbh.2.59.2435 Vaisampayana continued, Then Sakuni, well-skilled at dice, took up the dice and casting them said unto Yudhishthira, Lo, I have won
Mbh.2.60.2437 But be not so proud, O Sakuni.
Mbh.2.60.2441 Vaisampayana continued, Thus addressed, Sakuni said unto the chief of the perpetuators of the Kuru race, the eldest of the sons of Pandu, king Yudhishthira, of glory incapable of sustaining any diminution.
Mbh.2.60.2444 Vaisampayana continued, Hearing these words, Sakuni ready with the dice, and adopting unfair means, said unto Yudhishthira, Lo, I have won'
Mbh.2.60.2447 Vaisampayana continued, Hearing these words, Sakuni ready with the dice, adopting unfair means, said unto Yudhishthira.
Mbh.2.60.2451 Vaisampayana continued, Hearing these words, Sakuni, ready with the dice, adopting unfair means said unto Yudhishthira, Lo, I have won'
Mbh.2.60.2454 Vaisampayana continued, Unto Yudhishthira who had said so, Sakuni, the son of Suvala, laughingly said, Lo, I have won it'
Mbh.2.60.2457 Vaisampayana continued, When these words had been spoken, the wretch Sakuni, pledged to enmity, said unto Yudhishthira, Lo, I have won it'
Mbh.2.60.2461 Vaisampayana continued, Hearing this, Sakuni, ready at dice, adopting unfair means, said unto Yudhishthira: Lo, I have won'
Mbh.2.60.2465 Vaisampayana continued, Hearing this, Sakuni ready at dice, adopting unfair means said unto Yudhishthira, Lo, I have won'
Mbh.2.60.2469 Vaisampayana continued, Hearing this, Sakuni ready at dice, adopting foul means, said unto Yudhishthira, Lo, I have won it
Mbh.2.62.2517 Let Sakuni return whence he came.
Mbh.2.64.2577 SECTION LXIV Sakuni said, Thou hast, O Yudhishthira, lost much wealth of the Pandavas.
Mbh.2.64.2580 But why is it, O Sakuni, that thou askest me of my wealth?
Mbh.2.64.2584 Vaisampayana said, Hearing this, Sakuni, ready with the dice, adopting unfair means, said unto Yudhishthira, Lo, I have won'
Mbh.2.64.2587 Vaisampayana said, Hearing this Sakuni, ready with the dice, adopting unfair means, said unto Yudhishthira, Lo, I have won'
Mbh.2.64.2590 Vaisampayana said, Hearing this, Sakuni, ready with the dice, adopting foul means, said unto Yudhishthira, Lo!
Mbh.2.64.2594 Vaisampayana said, Hearing this, Sakuni, ready with his dice, adopting foul means, said unto Yudhishthira, Lo!
Mbh.2.64.2598 Sakuni said, O king Yudhishthira, prince Nakula is dear to thee.
Mbh.2.64.2601 Vaisampayana said, Saying this, Sakuni cast those dice, and said unto Yudhishthira, Lo!
Mbh.2.64.2606 Vaisampayana said, Hearing this, Sakuni, ready with the dice, adopting foul means, said unto Yudhishthira, Lo!
Mbh.2.64.2608 Sakuni continued, O king, the sons of Madri, dear unto thee, have both been won by me.
Mbh.2.64.2612 Sakuni said, One that is intoxicated falleth into a pit hell and stayeth there deprived of the power of motion.
Mbh.2.64.2618 Vaisampayana said, Hearing this, Sakuni, ready with the dice, adopting foul means, said unto Yudhishthira, Lo!
Mbh.2.64.2620 Sakuni continued, This foremost of all wielders of the bow, this son of Pandu capable of using both his hands with equal activity hath now been won by me.
Mbh.2.64.2622 Yudhishthira said, O king, however, undeserving he may be of being made a stake, I will now play with thee by staking Bhimasena, that prince who is our leader, who is the foremost in fight, even like the wielder of the thunder-bolt, the one enemy of the Danavas, the high-souled one with leonine neck and arched eye-brows and eyes looking askance, who is incapable of putting up with an insult, who hath no equal in might in the world, who is the foremost of all wielders of the mace, and who grindeth all foes Vaisampayana said, Hearing this, Sakuni, ready with the dice adopting foul means, said unto Yudhishthira.
Mbh.2.64.2625 Sakuni continued, Thou hast, O son of Kunti, lost much wealth, horses and elephants and thy brothers as well.
Mbh.2.64.2629 Vaisampayana said, Hearing this Sakuni, ready with the dice, adopting foul means, said unto Yudhishthira, Lo!
Mbh.2.64.2631 Sakuni continued, Thou hast permitted thyself to be won.
Mbh.2.64.2635 Vaisampayana continued, Having said this, Sakuni, well-skilled at dice, spoke unto all the brave kings present there of his having won, one after another, all the Pandavas.
Mbh.2.66.2772 And Sakuni, the son of Suvala, the Gandhara king, similarly applauded Dussasana.
Mbh.2.66.2779 Sakuni hath not his equal among men at dice-play.
Mbh.2.66.2781 The illustrious Yudhishthira doth not himself regard that Sakuni hath played with him deceitfully.
Mbh.2.72.3107 At these words, Duryodhana and Karna and Sakuni, the son of Suvala, all of whom were guided by vanity, united together, and desirous of counteracting the sons of Pandu, approaching in haste saw privately the wise king Dhritarashtra, the son of Vichitravirya and spake unto him these pleasing and artful words.
Mbh.2.72.3128 This Sakuni knoweth well the whole science of dice.
Mbh.2.74.3170 And knowing full well the deception practised by Sakuni, the son of Pritha came back to sit at dice with him again.
Mbh.2.74.3173 Sakuni then said, The old king hath given ye back all your wealth.
Mbh.2.74.3184 And Yudhishthira said, How can, O Sakuni, a king like me, always observant of the uses of his own order, refuse, when summoned to dice?
Mbh.2.74.3186 Sakuni answered, We have many kine and horses, and milch cows, and an infinite number of goats and sheep; and elephants and treasures and gold and slaves both male and female.
Mbh.2.74.3190 The son of Pritha, however, accepted it and Sakuni took up the dice.
Mbh.2.75.3224 And beholding this insult offered to him, the mighty and proud Bhima, suppressing his rising rage and following the steps of Yudhishthira, also spake these words while going out of the Kaurava court, I will slay Duryodhana, and Dhananjaya will slay Karna, and Sahadeva will slay Sakuni that gambler with dice.
Mbh.2.75.3229 And Bhima again said, The earth shall drink the blood of Duryodhana, and Karna, and the wicked Sakuni, and Dussasana that maketh the fourth'
Mbh.2.75.3235 Vaisampayana continued, After Arjuna had said this, Sahadeva the handsome son of Madri, endued with great energy, desirous of slaying Sakuni, waving his mighty arms and sighing like snake, exclaimed, with eyes red with anger, Thou disgrace of the Gandhara kings, those whom thou thinkest as defeated are not really so.
Mbh.2.78.3383 Then Duryodhana and Karna and Sakuni, the son of Suvala regarding Drona as their sole refuge, offered the kingdom to him.
Mbh.3.4.292 This then is thy prime duty now, to gratify the Pandavas and disgrace Sakuni.
Mbh.3.4.305 And, O king, let Duryodhana and Sakuni and Karna with alacrity wait upon the Pandavas.
Mbh.3.5.329 Doth he come hither, despatched by Sakuni, to invite us again to a game of dice?
Mbh.3.5.330 Doth the little-minded Sakuni intend to win again our weapons at dice?
Mbh.3.7.391 Sakuni said, O king, O lord of the earth, what folly hath taken possession of thee!
Mbh.3.12.597 And respectfully saluting that foremost of the Kurus, Kesava mournfully said, The earth shall drink the blood of Duryodhana and Karna, of Dussasana and the wicked Sakuni!
Mbh.3.27.1243 O Bharata, when dressed in deer-skin thou hast set out for the woods, only four persons, O monarch, viz, Duryodhana, Karna, the evil-minded Sakuni, and Dussasana that bad and fierce brother of Duryodhana, did not shed tears!
Mbh.3.34.1767 Sakuni, a native of the hilly country, is exceedingly artful.
Mbh.3.34.1770 Beholding the dice favourable to the wishes of Sakuni in odds and evens, I could have controlled my mind.
Mbh.3.44.2335 But the active Arjuna obtained no peace of mind, remembering the unfair play at dice of Sakuni, the son of Suvala, and thinking with rage of Dussasana and his death.
Mbh.3.173.8686 And, O son, when thou art in the field, Bhishma and Drona and Kripa and Karna and Sakuni together with other Kshatriyas shall not amount unto one-sixteenth part of thee'
Mbh.3.229.11539 Vinata is called the terrific Sakuni graha spirit of evil.
Mbh.3.229.11546 And, O king, Surabhi who is called the mother of bovine kind by the wise is best ridden by the evil spirit Sakuni, who in company with her, devours children on this earth.
Mbh.3.234.11865 Alas Duryodhana, and Sakuni, and the Suta's son, and Dussasana also of wicked soul, in robbing the Pandavas of their kingdom by means of dice, seem to behold the honey alone without marking the terrible ruin.
Mbh.3.234.11872 The gambler Sakuni hath behaved deceitfully towards the son of Pandu, who ever acteth honestly.
Mbh.3.235.11893 SECTION CCXXXV Vaisampayana said, Hearing those words of Dhritarashtra, Sakuni, when the opportunity presented itself, aided by Kama, spoke unto Duryodhana these words, Having exiled the heroic Pandavas by thy own prowess, O Bharata, rule thou this earth without a rival like the slayer of Samvara ruling the heaven!
Mbh.3.235.11912 Vaisampayana continued, Having thus spoken unto the king, Karna and Sakuni both remained silent, O Janamejaya, after their discourse was over
Mbh.3.236.11928 And when I shall be sitting with Bhishma, that best of the Kurus, thou wilt, with Sakuni propose the pretext which thou mayst have contrived.
Mbh.3.236.11937 And while Duryodhana and Karna were thus conversing laughingly, Sakuni addressed them and said, This plan, free from difficulties, was what I also saw for going thither!
Mbh.3.237.11945 Then the son of Radha and Sakuni, O king, addressing Dhritarashtra, that foremost of monarchs, said, O Kaurava, our cattle-stations are now in a delightful place.
Mbh.3.237.11967 Sakuni said, The eldest of the sons of Pandu is cognisant of morality.
Mbh.3.237.11974 Vaisampayana continued, Thus addressed by Sakuni, that lord of men, Dhritarashtra, granted permission, but not very willingly, to Duryodhana and his counsellors to go to the place.
Mbh.3.238.11983 And near enough to the royal residence they also erected separate abodes for Kama and Sakuni and the brothers of the king.
Mbh.3.239.12028 Then king Duryodhana, and Sakuni, the son of Suvala, and Dussasana, and Vikarna, and other sons of Dhritarashtra, seated on cars the clatter of whose wheels resembled the roars of Garuda, returned to the charge, following the lead of Karna, and began to slaughter that host.
Mbh.3.239.12041 Indeed, Duryodhana and Karna and Sakuni, the son of Suvala, all fought with the Gandharvas, although every one of them was much wounded and mangled in the encounter.
Mbh.3.249.12300 SECTION CCXLIX Vaisampayana said, Beholding king Duryodhana, incapable of putting up with an insult, seated with the resolution of giving up life by forgoing food, Sakuni, the son of Suvala, said these words to comfort him.
Mbh.3.249.12301 Sakuni said, O son of the Kuru race, you have just heard what Kama hath said.
Mbh.3.249.12315 Vaisampayana continued, Hearing these words of Sakuni, and seeing the brave Dussasana lying prostrate before him unmanned by fraternal love, the king raised Dussasana and, clasping him in his well round arms, smelt his head from affection.
Mbh.3.251.12402 And what did the offspring of the Sun, Karna, and the mighty Sakuni, and Bhishma, and Drona, and Kripa do?
Mbh.3.252.12477 Ever since that time, O monarch, O Bharata, king Duryodhana and Sakuni, the son of Suvala, thought that Pritha's sons had already been defeated in battle by Karna
Mbh.3.260.12758 SECTION CCLX Janamejaya said, While the high-souled Pandavas were living in those woods, delighted with the pleasant conversation they held with the Munis, and engaged in distributing the food they obtained from the sun, with various kinds of venison to Brahmanas and others that came to them for edibles till the hour of Krishna's meal, how, O great Muni, did Duryodhana and the other wicked and sinful sons of Dhritarashtra, guided by the counsels of Dussasana, Karna and Sakuni, deal with them?
Mbh.3.310.15152 And Sahadeva said, Surely, O Bharata, this calamity hath befallen us because I did not slay Sakuni when he defeated thee at dice
