अश्वाश्वतरनागोष्ट्रखरमर्त्यशिरांसि च ॥ ८ ॥
karabhā ūravo ’ṅghrayaḥ
Lying all around were thighs, legs and fingerless hands, along with hands clutching swords, clubs and bows, and also the heads of horses, donkeys, elephants, camels, wild asses and humans.
Karabhāḥ indicates the portion of the hand from the wrist to the base of the fingers. The same word may also indicate an elephant’s trunk, and thus in this verse the implication is that the thighs lying on the battlefield resembled the trunks of elephants.
