Hidimba is on a fast. She orders her son Ghatotkacha to bring a man from the forest to eat at the end of the fasting. Ghatotkacha stops a traveling Brahmin family in the middle of the forest.|
To save his parents and two brothers, the second son Madhyama gets ready to sacrifice himself. As his last wish, he goes to drink water with permission of Ghatotkacha. When the Brahmin boy is not back at the expected time, Ghatotkacha gets furious, he calls out loud, "Madhyama Madhyama". Bhima the Madhyama Pandav who is in that forest at that time hears the call and responds. He pacifies and promises the Brahmin family to save them from their present agony. He (Bhima) asks Ghatotkacha to take him instead of the Brahmin boy, but only if he is able to defeat in test of strength.
Ghatotkacha accepts the challenge and fights with Bhima. Bhima is defeated in the end. He brings Bhima in front of his mother Hidimba. She recognizes Bhima, who is her husband and tells the same to Ghatotkacha. Ghatotkacha refuses to accept Bhima as his father because he had never seen Bhima as his father since his birth, and Bhima never performed his duties as father towards Ghatotkacha. Ultimately Hidimba successfully convinces Ghatotkacha and after an argument Ghatotkacha finally accepts Bhima as his father. At the end Bhima, Ghatotkacha and Hidimba reunite.
