Arjuna or Arjun (अर्जुन arjuna , pronounced [ɐrˈɟunɐ]in classical Sanskrit) is one of the Pandavas, the heroes of the Hindu epic Mahābhārata. Arjuna [1], whose name means 'bright', 'shining', 'white' or 'silver' (cf. Latin argentum), was such a peerless archer that he is often referred to as Jishnu - the undefeatable. The third of the five Pandava brothers, Arjuna was one of the children borne by Kunti, the first wife of Pandu. Arjuna is considered to be an incarnation of Nara, the younger brother of Narayana. [2] [3] He is sometimes referred to as the 'fourth Krishna' of the Mahabharata. [4] One of his most important roles was as the dear friend and brother-in-law of Lord Krishna, from whom he heard the Bhagavad Gita before the battle of Kurukshetra.


Arjun's exile led him eventually to Manipur and it was there that the Naga princess, Ulupi, became infatuated with him and asked him to beget a child. Arjuna refuses at first, but then Ulupi explains him that meaning of the exile is with respect to Draupadi and not absolute. So, as long as he stays away from Draupadi, his vow would not be falsified. Arjuna agrees with her. This episode is in contrast with the legend of Bhishma, the Pandavas grand-father [UKT: granduncle]. During this 12 year period, he visited numerous neighboring kingdoms and entered into marital alliances with their royal princesses, in order to strengthen the Pandavas' support-base, especially in view of the Rajasyu Yagya planned by Yudishthira. Some scholars [Who?] view the "exile" as a scheme to throw the major rivals of the Pandavas, including their cousins the Kauravs, off-track.

Altogether, Arjuna had also many wives. However, he accorded importance to only a handful of them, ...

From Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghungroo 100423

A ghungroo, ghunghroo or ghunghru is one of many small metallic bells strung together to form ghungroos, a musical anklet tied to the feet of classical Indian dancers. [1] The sounds produced by ghungroos vary greatly in pitch depending on their metallic composition and size. Ghungroos serve to accentuate the rhythmic aspects of the dance and allow complex footwork to be heard by the audience. They are worn immediately above the ankle, resting on the lateral malleolus and medial malleolus. A string of ghungroos can range from 50 to greater than 200 bells knotted together. A novice child dancer may start with 50 and slowly add more as he or she grows older and advances in his or her technical ability. Ghungroos are worn in traditional performances of the classical Indian dance forms: bharatnatyam, kathak, kuchipudi, and odissi.

"Ghungroo" is also the name of the annual undergraduate cultural production of the South Asian Association at Harvard College.

Meena Kumari in Pakeezah wore ghungroo to perform her many mujra (classical dances). Madhubala in Mughal-E-Azam wore ghungroo in her song "Jab Pyar Kiya Toh Darna Kya" (If I Have Loved Why Should I Be Frightened). Vidya Balan danced to "Ami Je Tomar" (I Am Yours) in Bhool Bhulaiya.
