(continued from previous episode)Vidura explains to Kunti why he would fight for the Kauravas in case there is a war.
The next day, Krishna spells out the reason for his visit and asks that the Pandavas be returned their kingdom. Duryodhana is highly disrespectful of Krishna and is in no mood for any reconciliation. He refuses to give the Pandavas even the five houses that Krishna asks for, saying he wouldn't part with even a needle-sized land. Krishna asks others in the court to advise Duryodhana. As Vidura speaks out in favor of peaceful settlement, Duryodhana lashes out angrily at him for offering to host Krishna despite his being on the payrolls of the king and receiving salary as alms and calls him the son of a dasi. As Vidura writhes in agony, Krishna slyly remarks to Duryodhana why he acted tactlessly, especially when a powerful warrior like Vidura, who had sworn allegiance to Hastinapura, had a powerful weapon such as Vishnu astra with which he could wipe out the enemy. Duryodhana had disrespected his venerable uncle and Krishna asks him pointedly which self respecting man would tolerate an insult to his mother?
