The poet says that the bodies of these two valiant heroes who did not flee
when the rest fled, shed a strange lustre all around. Sakuni was full of anger when he saw
his brave and incomparable brothers lying dead on the field.
He attacked Arjuna fiercely and used all the weapons of illusion, in
which he was skilled. But Arjuna's strokes broke all the charms and rendered them useless,
and Sakuni had to leave the field, as fast as his horses could bear him.
The Pandava forces then attacked Drona's army and wrought great havoc
till the sun set, and the twelfth day's fight ended. Drona gave orders to cease fighting
and the Kaurava forces, which had lost heavily, retired in sullen dejection to their camp.
