The drama “Prothom Partho” was written by Sri Buddhadev Bosu and is based on the “War of Kurukshetra”, fought between the Pandavas and Kauravas for the power of Hastinapur, as per the great epic Mahabharat.

Karno is the central character of the story. We also come across two old Brahmins, who act as the narrator during the course of the radio play. The other characters in this drama are – Kunti (mother of the Pandavas), Draupadi (wife of the Pandavas) and Krishna (a person with great political & analytical mind and a well wisher & good friend of the Pandavas).

For making the broadcast more interesting, the radio play has been segregated into 3 parts, where Kunti will feature in Part1, Draupadi in Part 2 and Krishna in Part 3.

In this part of the play Krishna enters the scene and tries his wits to throw Karno off his firmness and then realizing that Karno is not a person who can be uprooted from his mental strength, Krishna became very frank and described the way he will use magical powers to defeat and kill Karno in the hand of Arjun. Karno becomes frustrated at this but he did not lose his self confidence regarding his decision of fighting for the Kauravas. With Karno choosing to fight against Arjun, his death became inevitable and Krishna commented that Karno will be regarded as an “immortal figher, whose death will be hated by all future generations to come”. The War is beginning at dawn.
