Accuracy of section Pandu's last wish[edit]

I can't find any valid references for section "Pandus Last Wish". I have also raised this as a question in stackexchange Hinduism site, following is link for it. The content is not valid and should be removed. http://hinduism.stackexchange.com/q/3518/23 Tejesh.alimilli (talk) 11:55, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

Removed "After years of Celibacy and meditation in the forest, Pandu once said to all of his kids that when he died they should eat his flesh. By doing so they would be blessed with great knowledge. But when Pandu died none of his son had the courage to do so. But Sahadeva saw some ants taking a piece of flesh from his fathers' body. He put that piece in his mouth and eventually got powers which he could never have imagined. He saw what all had happened(about kuru and yadava's, Bhishma's vow and everything that was past) and also about future(gambling loss, mahabharta war, etc.)."
It may be a folk tale. Jaya: An Illustrated Retelling of the Mahabharata By Devdutt Pattanaik does mention it. Removing for now. --Redtigerxyz Talk 12:48, 14 February 2015 (UTC)
