DASI-SUTA Ask Bidara (Vidura), Dasi-Suta (the son of the maid-servant), in whose house Krishna stayed. (Suhi M. 4, p. 733) The words Dasi-Suta mean the son of a maid-servant. These words are used with reference to Vidura, the half-brother of Dhritarashtra and Pandu. When Vichitra-virya, the son of Shantanu passed away without any issue, two sons were bom to his widows Ambika and Ambalika through Niyoga with Vyasa in order to continue the royal line.

These sons were Dhritarashtra, who was blind and Pandu, the pale one. It was considered desirable to have another son -who should be \’without any defect. This time the widow sent her maid-servant in her clothes and Vidura •was bom. That is the reason for using the epithet Dasi-Suta for Vidura. See : Vyasa , Vidura .
