Mahabharata-The War Ends
The war finally ended after eighteen days. Dhrithrashtra was devastated when he heard that Duryodhana had died. He was also furious when he heard how Ashvattama had killed Sati Draupadi's sons. Vidura and Sage Vyasa consoled Dhrithrashtra by saying that the war had to happen. Sati Gandhari too was very sad but blessed the Pandavas, who had emerged victorious.
Finally, the Pandavas went to the banks of the Ganga to perform the last rites of those who had lost their lives in the war.
