This popular scene from the Epic Mahabharata illustrates the scene Karna and his birth mother Kunti. Kunti was granted the boon to bear a child with desired divine qualities from the gods without her knowledge.  Karna was secretly born to an unmarried Kunti in her teenage, fearing outrage and backlash from society over her premarital pregnancy, Kunti had no choice but to abandon the newly born Karna adrift in a basket on the Ganges, in the hope that he found a family. The basket was discovered and Karna was adopted and raised by foster parents Radha and Adhiratha Nandana, a charioteer for king Dhritarashtra.
