Like in Mahabharath, Arjuna, Bhima, Nakula, Sahadeva, Yuddhishthira, Draupadi, Subhadra etc. Were the parts of some or the other Devas like Arjuna was of Indra Dev, Bhima was of Vayu Dev, Nakula was of the first Ashwin twin Natsya, Sahadeva was of the other Ashwin twin Dasra, Draupadi was of Devi Sacchi (wife of Indra Deva) and Subhadra was of Devi Yogamaya a form of Devi Adi-Shakti i.e. Devi Parvati or Devi Sati. The same goes for Abhimanyu, Abhimanyu was the incarnation of Vacchra, son of Chandra. And was born to Arjuna and his third wife Subhadra. Abimanyu was a legend, he comes under one of the greatest warriors of Mahabharath. But all credits goes to his elder brother cum teacher Pradumana, the eldest son of Krishna and Rukmini. Pradyumana started training his cousin since the day his cousin became capable of holding heavy weapons. Pradyumana was too one of the greatest warriors of the Dwapar Yuga. Rather than Pradhumana, Balaram and Krishna too taught their nephew. After lots and lots of training, Abhimanyu turned out to be the most powerful and the youngest warriors. At a young age of thirteen, he learned to use celestial weapons. At the age of 16, he got married to Uttara, the daughter of Virata. Abhimanyu could just live only four months of a happily married life and that too, most of the time he spent in discussing the war tactics with is elders. And then, the Kurukshetra war happened and finally, on the thirteenth day of the war, Maha Kaal came to take Abhimanyu along with him. The death of Abhimanyu may still leave everyone with tears in their eyes. But his death was destined for the promise all the gods and goddesses made to Chandra Dev. Chandra Dev was really very much attached to his son Vacchra. Just like Maharaj Dashrath to Lord Ram and Lakshman. The time when the Lord Vishnu asked Chandra Dev to let his son Vacchra incarnate on Prithvi then, Chandra Dev did not grant him permission to take Vacchra along with him for he could not live without him even for a moment. But finally, Chandra Dev agreed but with a few conditions.
- He would only send Vacchra for sixteen years on Prithvi.
- Vacchra’s son would become the throne hire after the Pandavas.
- Even after his death, Vacchra would become immortal. He would be the most powerful warrior amongst the Uppa Pandavas (all the sons of the Pandavas).
