As is the common practice even today, the chauffeur of a car is expected to open the door of the car when the owner gets down. One day, in Mahabharatha, after war, when the chariot returned and stood in front of his house, Arjuna insisted on Lord Krishna, his charioteer, getting down first and opening the door. Krishna disagreed and, in a strong language, admonished Arjuna, asking him to get down first and go inside. Not recognising the inner significance of Krishna’s words, Arjuna reluctantly accepted and no sooner did he go inside, Krishna jumped out of the chariot. The next moment, the entire chariot was in flames. When the surprised Pandavas asked why did the chariot get burnt, Krishna explained that all the powerful arms from the battle were subdued and kept under His feet; now when He left the chariot, they exploded. God always plans and takes care to protect His devotees from harm.
