What is Kaliyug??

What is Kaliyug and what will happen during Kaliyug?

Asked The four Pandavas (except Yudhishthira who was not present)

Krishna smiled and said "let me demonstrate you the situation of Kaliyug". He took a bow and four arrows and shot them in four directions, and ordered the four Pandavas to bring them back

Each of the four Pandavas went in four different directions to search for the arrows

Arjuna when picked the arrow heard a very sweet voice; he turned back and saw a cuckoo was singing bhajans in very spellbinding voice but was also eating flesh of a live rabbit which was in great pain. Arjuna was very surprised to see such a gory act by such a divine bird. He left the place immediately

Bhima picked the arrow from a place where five wells were situated, the four wells were surrounding a single well. The four wells were overflowing with very sweet water as if they were not able to hold the water. But surprisingly the well in the middle of these four overflowing wells was completely empty. Bhima was also puzzled at this sight

Nakula was returning to the place after picking up the arrow. He stopped at a place where a cow was about to give birth

After giving birth the cow started licking the calf but continued to lick it even after the calf was clean. With great difficulty people were able to separate them and by that time the calf was injured badly. Nakula was puzzled by the behaviour of such a calm animal

Sahadev picked the arrow which fell near a mountain and saw a big boulder falling, the boulder was crushing the rocks and big trees on his way down, but the same boulder was stopped by a small plant. Sahadev was also amazed at this sight

All the Pandavas asked the meaning of these incidents from Krishna, who smiled and started explaining

"In Kaliyug the priests will have very sweet voice and also have great knowledge, but they will exploit devotees the same way the cuckoo was doing to the rabbit. In Kaliyug poor will live among the rich. Those rich will have enormous amount of wealth which will actually overflow but they will not offer a single penny to the poor, in the same way as the four wells didn't give a single drop of water to the empty well
In Kaliyug parent will love their children so much that their love will actually spoil them and destroy their lives similar to the love shown by the cow to her newborn calf

In Kaliyug people will fall in terms of character like the boulder from the mountain and they will not be stopped by anyone. At the end only the name of God will be able to hold them from doom like how the little plant held the boulder from falling down further

That's the explanation of Kaliyug from God Krishna to the four Pandavas
