When her pregnancy continued for an unusually long period of time, Gandhari beat her womb in frustration. Due to her actions, a hardened mass emerged from her womb at the time of the delivery. Upset and shocked, she called upon Sage Vyasa, who divided the ball into 101 equal pieces and put them in pots of ghee. These pots were sealed and buried into the earth for one year. When the pots were opened, infants emerged from them. This is the story of Duryodhan and the 101 Kaurav siblings.
