33-Divine Births and Their Progenies
Mahaabhaarat has many Divine births. It has been noticed that all these divine births were not guided by ordinary human rules.
Bheeshm - Gangaa's son
Karn - Soorya's son
Yudhishthir - Dharm Raaj's son
Dhrishtdyumn and Draupadee - Divine birth from Agni Kund
Dhrishtdyumn and Draupdee are twins born
from Yagya Kund and thus were the creation of Agni. They were not born out
of human union.
Dronaacharya was a Guru as well as a Braahaman. He was destined to be killed by Agni Putra Dhrishtdyumn on the dictate of Krishn because he had adopted the path of A-Dharm. If you study that episode, Indra , Naarad and then finally Brahmaa аashed him to denounce the path of A-Dharm, when he did not listen to them, Krishn had no option but to arrange his killing in the manner he deserved.
Drone however could have been defeated by
Arjun as Arjun had all the divine weapons whereas Drone did not have all
those weapons. Only Arjun and Bheeshm had the mighty Paashupat Astra from
Shiv. However, since one is not permitted to kill one's Guru and Drone was
Arjun's Guru Arjun could not have killed Drone. The ruse of the dead
elephant worked as Drone forgot for a moment that his son could not be
killed because he was a Chiranjeevee
Krishn cannot do or teach the path of A-Dharm. A Braahman was killed by Agni and not by humans. Both of these twins of Agni did not leave any of their progeny as they were not humans.
In this way Bheeshm also did not leave any progeny. His circumstances were created like this.
Karn's all children were killed in the MBH war.
Even Arjun's son Abhimanyu was also killed in the MBH war.
Since the Kuru Vansh had to continue - Pareekshit, Abhimanyu's son, was revived by Krishn Himself.
