Draupadee as the Wife of
It is a popular belief, and even MBH
Serial also shows this that Paandav said to Kuntee in jest that "See what
we have brought in Bhikshaa?" and as usual Kuntee told them to distribute
it among themselves, and they stood aghast.
But this not true. Vyaas Jee came to them
and told them this even before their setting off to Kaampilya Nagaree.

Laugh of Draupadee at Duryodhan
[Ganguli, Sabhaa Parv,
Draupadee did laugh at Duryodhan in Yudhishthir's Roya'l
Court when he fell into the water, along with Bheem, Arjun, Nakul and Sahadev and
Krishn did not try to stop them, rather he encouraged them.
[Ganguli, Bhagavat Yaan
The popular perception - It was a spontaneous
offer from Krishn to Dhritraashtra to give five villages to Paandav..
BUT It was Yudhishthir who was willing to settle
for even 5 villages in exchange for peace. He has said this two times -
--one, at the time when Vidur Jee came to him with Dhritraashtra's message of peace and;
--two, at the time when Krishn was going to Hastinaapur for the final peace deal. He said
to Him - "Having the Kaashee, the Paanchaal, the Chedi, and the Matsya, for my allies
and with thee, O slayer of Madhu, for my protector, I prayed for only five villages, etc,
Avishthala, Vrikasthal, Makandee, Baaranaavat, with any other, O Govind, as the fifth; --
Grant us, we said, five villages or towns, O sire, where we five may dwell in union, for we
do not desire the destruction of the Bharatas. -- The wicked-minded son of Dhritraashtra,
however, regarding the lordship of the world to be; in him, doth not agree to even that.
What can be more sorrowful than this?"
Popular perception - Many people think that Kashyap
who was coming to save Pareekshit was Maharshi Kashyap,
BUT he was not the Maharshi Kashyap, he himself was a
Vaidya (Indian traditional doctor) and the son of a Vaidya. He wanted to save Pareekshit
to get some riches. [
