The Pandavas army fares poorly during the first day of the battle. Dhrishtadyumna, the commander-in-chief of the Pandavas, devises strategies to avoid a repetition of the first day. Bheeshma's chariot, Duryodhan's men protect the grandsire, but Arjun continues to fight. Bheeshma's arrows hit Arjun and Shri Krishna. Arjun retaliates and injures Bheeshma. Satyaki kills Bheeshma's charioteer and horses are left unbridled. The horses run wildly and take Bheeshma away from the battlefield. The Pandavas return to their camp in great cheer.
