For the uninitiated, Ashwatthama was the son of Guru Dronacharya, the teacher of the Kauravas and Pandavas. In the battle of Mahabharata, he fought on the side of the Kauravas, like his father. He is one of the seven immortals or ‘Chiranjeevi’ in Hindu religion, along with Hanuman, Parashurama, Rishi Vyasa, Vibhishana, King Bali, and Acharya Kripa. Ashwatthama was born with a jewel on his forehead that gave him protection against hunger, thirst, and fatigue. During the battle of Kurukshetra, Lord Krishna tricks Dronacharya into believing that Ashwatthama had died, in an attempt to digress his attention and stop him from creating havoc in the Pandava camp.
