Whose Son Was Abhimanyu?
At one place it is said that he was the son of Varchas who himself was Chandramaa's son - this means that he was not Chandramaa's son, but was rather Chandramaa's grandson. But we have never heard of any son of Chandramaa with the name of Varchas. Of course we know only one son named Budh who was from Brihaspati's wife Taaraa.
Soorya had a lots of Varchas (Tej) so his wife could not tolerate him, and her father Vishwakarmaa had to trim Soorya's Tej. A girls was born from that trimmed Varchas and was named as Suvarchalaa whom Soorya Dev married to Hanumaan ( read this story) It means that Varchas means Tej, and we have never heard of such Tej of Chandramaa from which he had a son named Varchas who had produced a son named Abhimanyu.
So whose son was Abhimanyu?
Whose Incarnation Was Abhimanyu?
Was he really the incarnation of Kaalnemi?
