tam — that child; sā — she (Kuntī); atyajat — gave up; nadī-toye — in the water of the river; kṛcchrāt — with great repentance; lokasya — of the people in general; bibhyatī — fearing; prapitāmahaḥ — (your) great-grandfather; tām — her (Kuntī); uvāha — married; pāṇḍuḥ — the king known as Pāṇḍu; vai — indeed; satya-vikramaḥ — very pious and chivalrous.
Because Kuntī feared people’s criticisms, with great difficulty she had to give up her affection for her child. Unwillingly, she packed the child in a basket and let it float down the waters of the river. O Mahārāja Parīkṣit, your great-grandfather the pious and chivalrous King Pāṇḍu later married Kuntī.
