How could Abhimanyu or sons of Draupadi be around 16 years old during the war when it was said that Arjuna himself trained them in weapons, Dhoumya trained them in Veda, and the sacred-thread ceremony was also done even before the Rajasuya Sacrifice?
Answer by Raakhee V. Menon:
The ages of the various characters of our epics have been a matter of great debate since forever.
There are some popular versions like how it is said that Abhimanyu was 16 years old when he was killed on the battle-field, which would imply that the Pandavas (and Krishna) were probably in their early 40s when the battle at Kurukshetra happened. 1,168 more words
