                                                  atra sura mahesva
      sa
                                                bhimarjuna-sama yudhi
                                                  yuyudhano viratas ca
                                              drupadas ca maha-rathah

                                                          SYNONYMS

      atra--here; surah--heroes; maha-isu-asah--mighty bowmen; bhima-arjuna--Bhima and Arjuna; samah--equal; yudhi--in the fight;
      yuyudhanah--Yuyudhana; viratah--Virata; ca--also; drupadah--Drupada; ca--also; maha-rathah--great fighter.

                                                        TRANSLATION

      Here in this army there are many heroic bowmen equal in fighting to Bhima and Arjuna; there are also great fighters like
      Yuyudhana, Virata and Drupada.

                                                            PURPORT

      Even though Dhrstadyumna was not a very important obstacle in the face of Dronacarya's very great power in the military art,
       there were many others who were the cause of fear. They are mentioned by Duryodhana as great stumbling blocks on the path
      of victory because each and every one of them was as formidable as Bhima and Arjuna. He knew the strength of Bhima and Arjuna,
      and thus he compared the others with them.
