Ashwatthama went to arabian peninsula?[edit]

Somebody needs to put a source for that or it needs to be removed.

—The preceding unsigned comment was added by 62.150.168.156 (talk) 14:05, 31 December 2006 (UTC).

that makes total sense because that must have given birth to islam and muslims. Hence the constant attack on the Indian subcontinent from 8th century CE. It would be amazing to get some sort of proof or source for that though. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.180.39.64 (talk) 17:00, 11 January 2008 (UTC)


Whoever wrote that last comment, please tell me that you are kidding. Hindu supremacists being what they are, I would not be at all surprised if somebody espoused in all seriousness the whack-job idea that Islam is an artefact of Ashwatthama's travels in the Levant. But if you are serious, perhaps you would want to consider the further possibility that Ashwatthama, disguised as Queen Elizabeth I, also gave the East India Company its charter so that India could be shafted well and good. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.232.83.235 (talk) 11:33, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

He was a partial incarnation of Lord Shiva?[edit]

parsurama curse to karna[edit]

What is the purpose of this section in an article about Ashwatthama? Tkul (talk) 02:25, 27 August 2010 (UTC)tkul


The purpose of this section was to emphasis that "the collision of two Brahmastras" could have also occured in the Kurukshetra between Arjuna and Karna. In the sage vedavyasa's Ashram, the great sage prevented the destruction of the entire world by asking Ashwathama and Arjuna to withdraw their respective Brahmastras. If the same situation had it been occured in Kurukshetra war between Karna and Arjuna, then even Krishna would have not intervened to prevent the catastrophic collision of these two astras. So, the Parasurama's curse indirectly saves the entire world by avoiding such a situation between Karna and Arjuna. --Mahabharat fan (talk) 15:34, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

about Ashwatthama's Wife & Heir[edit]

Thanks to wikipedians for recent update in the article. I am very much interested hindu mythology. I was working a project about Chiranjeevins in last 6 to seven years. I have collected wast data about the Chiranjeevins. But i am unable to get any clear image about Ashwatthama's wife and heir(kid). The same age pandavas and kaurava are getting married and some others are got grandchilds too. But why Ashwatthama did not marry a women ? or he cursed by some rishi in the matter ? Please help to me. (Gnuismail (talk) 10:17, 22 October 2010 (UTC))

Is Ashwatthama really Alive...???????? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 122.168.24.3 (talk) 17:31, 4 November 2010 (UTC)

Reference 13?[edit]

I'm sorry if this sounds silly but should Reference 13 be so large?

No need .I added it,so that user Munna55 should read it, before vandalising and adding personal opinions on the page.Arjunkrishna90 (talk) 02:51, 13 January 2015 (UTC)

Article Cleaning Up!![edit]

As per the reference improve template dated 2009 this article needs serious update with data that can be verifiable!!.As i went through the article it seems that most of the stories about the character Ashwatthama is just folklore or the mere imagination of various editors over the years..Majority of claims cannot be verified by any means. I am deleting such contents and replacing it with datas that can be verified.I AM CURRENTLY UPDATING THIS PAGE WITH DATA AND REFERENCES FROM KM GANGULYS "MAHABRATHA" PRESENT IN SACRED TEXTS WEBSITE.All the contents are verifiable(links provided) and added links to almost all of the important words to other pages.

As i felt before making edits to this page, some editors over the years made edits and included their personal opinions to make the character Aswathamma looks like a super villan.As a wikipedian its our responsibility to maintain the page neutrally not to judge any character as good or bad!!!.

I am adding some quotes to this page which i felt most necessary in order to show light into the life of the character Aswathama.Most of these quotes are showing the emotional feelings of the character and which i feel is most necessary to understand these character fully.Please dont delete those quotes,but after some time with the consensus of other edits we can make necessary changes.

Themes/Analysis section[edit]

There is no analysis, and no discussion of themes in this section. It is just a rehash of several plot points. No citations are provided. This section should be removed.

All the long quotes in this article must also be removed. It is against wikipedia to plagiarize directly from other sources.Pinkfloyd11 (talk)
