tam satyajan nadi-toye
krcchral lokasya bibhyati
prapitamahas tam uvaha
pandur vai satya-vikramah
Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
Because Kunti 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 Maharaja Pariksit, your great-grandfather the pious and chivalrous King Pandu later married Kunti.
