दृष्ट्वा तु पाण्डवानीकं व्यूढं दुर्योधनस्तदा।
आचार्यमुपसङ्गम्य राजा वचनमब्रवीत्।।1.2।।
।।1.2।।सञ्जय बोले उस समय वज्रव्यूहसे खड़ी हुई पाण्डवसेनाको देखकर राजा दुर्योधन द्रोणाचार्यके पास जाकर यह वचन बोला।
Having seen the armies of the Pandavas arrayed in military formation ready for battle, King Duryodhana approaches his preceptor Drona and spoke the following words.
Madhvacarya has no commentary so we present Baladeva Vidyabhusanas. Dhritarastra although blind at birth was born with an inner eye of knowledge; but due to being overly affectionate and attached to his sons he lost the knowledge of righteousness and thus he was worrying that his sons might return half of the kingdom to the Pandavas who were the rightful heirs. Sanjaya who was righteous by nature could understand the actual internal mood of Dhritarastra; but to appease his anxiety that his sons would never give back half of the kingdom he said this verse beginning drstva tu pandavanikam vyudham...the soldiers of the Pandavas are in military formation. The initiative taken by Duryodhana in approaching his preceptor in archery, the master bowman Drona shows that internally he was feeling fearful at the sight of the Pandavas might. So with the pretence of going to offer respect, he approached Drona to conceal this fear. The word raja meaning king indicates that Duryodhana was very expert in the diplomacy of politics and the use of the word vacanam implies that he would speak terse sentences filled with heavy import concerning the subject of war.
There is no commentary for this verse.
In this way, Vaisampayana reiterates the answer of Sanjaya who could truly understand the blind Dtritarastras hidden desire his heart being locked in affection for his sons welfare irregardless of righteousness. Sanjaya then replies that King Duryodhana upon seeing the formidable army of the Pandava arranged in military phalanxes approached Drona his instructor in archery and weaponry and uttered these words. By this verse the alarm within the mind of Duryodhana caused by seeing the might of the Pandava army is subtlety suggested.
