Who is the father of Yudhistira in the Mahabharat?

Yudhishtira was the first of Pandavas. His mother was Kunti. Who is the father of Yudhistira in the Mahabharat is explained below in the story. She was married to Pandu. But Pandu could not have sexual union with Kunti because of a curse. Kunti due to her service to Sage Durvasa had got a boon that she will be able to summon a god and have children in him. Pandu requested Kunti to make use of the boon. Thus Yudhishtira was born when Kunti summoned Dharmaraja, also known as Yama, the god of death in Hinduism. Dharmaraja blessed her with Yudhishtira.

But as per social custom that was followed at the time of Mahabharata, Pandu is the father of Yudhishtira.

No one is a stranger; learn to make the world your own – Holy Mother Sharada Devi

Learn to make the world your own. Nobody is a stranger, my dear; the world is yours.

An unpleasant truth, though true, must not be uttered. For that grows into a habit. By indulging in rude words one’s nature becomes rude. One's sensitivity is lost if one has no control over one's speech. And once a man casts all consideration for others to the winds, he stops at nothing.
When a man sees defects in others, his own mind first gets polluted. What does he gain by finding faults in others? He only hurts himself by that.
It is idle to expect that dangers and difficulties will not come. They are bound to come. But for a devotee they will pass away under the feet like water.
