The reason given in the Mahabharata is that Kunti had unknowingly asked the Pandavas to share what they had brought on that day not knowing that on that day Arjuna had won Panchali’s hand in marriage in the court of Drupada. But the reason for Kunti unknowingly uttering to share Panchali is mentioned Markandeya Purana.

Markandeya Purana states that the five Pandava brothers were in reality Indra, the king of Devas, and Draupadi was Indra’s wife Shachi Devi. So when her husband took the form of Pandavas she appeared as the wife of Pandava brothers. The story mentioned in this regard reads like this.

Dr S Radhakrishnan – Collection of Wisdom

Regarding the future there is nothing sure or predestined or guaranteed. The only certainty is that the good will prevail over evil. The spirit in man is the source of his freedom. We are free to choose the cause. When once we exercise our choice, we may not be able to alter or affect the effect.
If we do not take note of the currents of thought and aspiration but claim to speak of infallible truth about God, discard the canons of social justice, overlook that God finds something of himself in each religion and not fully in any, if we do not develop community of minds in a world that is desperately threatened by instruments which we ourselves have devised, the number of unbelievers will increase and God himself may join the camp of unbelievers.

Even the conviction that one’s own faith gives a deeper insight into reality, need not engender hostility to those who cherish other beliefs. We may look upon others as fellow-seekers of truth. Dr S Radhakrishnan
