Draupadi's Forgiveness

Draupadi had five sons, one son each from the Pandava brothers. Their names were Prativindhya, Sutasoma, Shrutakarma, Satanika, and Shrutasena. Ashwatthama killed all five sons mistaking them as Pandava Brothers during his surprise raid on Pandava camp. Later Pandavas found Ashwatthama and brought him front of Draupadi. However Draupadi chose to forgive Ashwatthama instead of killing him. She said that she understands how a mother feels when her sons are killed and she doesn’t want Ashwatthama’s mother to feel the same. She chose forgiveness over revenge.
