One of the very first drawings I did related to Indian mythology was one of the Pandavas with Krishna from the Mahabharat (second drawing above). After nearly a year, I went back to the piece and started thinking about how I could improve it and struck upon the idea of drawing each Pandava brother along with their respective divine parent and in some way showing a story from the Mahabharat or just showing the personality of the brother (the first drawing above).
So to the center is Yudhistira being questioned by his father Yamadharmaraja, the God of Death, on the nature of the universe. The spirits of his four brothers are trapped in the flames and can only be released by successfully answering all of the questions.
To its immediate left is Bhima eating all the food meant for Bakasura after having killed the demon, overseen by his father Vayu, the Wind God.
To the right of the center is Arjuna, trying to shoot the eye of a fish by gazing upon its reflection in a pool of water in order to win the hand of Draupadi in marriage, overseen by his father Indra, the Rain God.
To the far left is Nakula, master of horses, overseen by one of the Ashvini twins, God of medicine and herbs.
To the far right is Sahadeva, master of cows, overseen by the other Ashvini twin, God of medicine and herbs.
