When Samb (The son of Lord Krishna) kidnapped Lakshmana ( The daughter of Duryodhana).

Samb- (The son of Lord Krishna) was madly in love with Lakshmana (The daughter of Duryodhana). Samb was son of Lord Krishna and Jambawanti. Jambawanti was daughter of Jambawant. She married Lord Krishna when Lord Krishna defeated Jambawant in a duel. Lakshmana was daughter of Duryodhana and Bhanumati.

When the marriage ceremony of Abhimanyu and Uttara was going on, at that very much time Samb eloped with Lakshmana.

Duryodhana did not like Krishna and never wanted that his daughter Lakshmana to marry son of Krishna. He also attacked Samb. But because of Lord Balrama he had to agree for marriage.

It is very little known fact that prior to the Mahabharat War, Krishna and Duryodhana has already become close relative to each other, as daughter of Duryodhana (i.e. Lakshmana) became daughter-in-law of Lord Krishna.

It is a matter of surprise that how Samb could muster courage to kidnap a woman. This adventure traces its origin from the time of Dhrishrashtra Marriage.

Bhshma Pitamah kidnapped Amba, Ambika and Ambalika forcefully against their desire to marry his younger brother. Bhishma Pitamah again forced the Kandhar Kingdom to marry Gandhari to blind King Dhritrashra.

Kidnapping a women is the theme which had been repeated many times in Mahabharata.

Lord Krishna also eloped with Rukmini to marry her, in spite of strong resistance of her brother Rukmin, the brother of Rukmini

Arjun also kidnapped Subhadra (The sister of Lord Krishna) and married her.

Duryodhana also married Bhanumati after kidnapping her against her desire.

But there is huge difference between the kidnapping of Bhisma Pitamaha and Duryodhana at one hand the kidnapping of Lord Krishna and Arjuna on the other hand.

Bhisma Pitamaha and Duryodhana kidnapped the women against their desire, while Lord Krishna and Arjuna Kidnapped the women because Rukmini and Subhadra loved them.

Perhaps Samb must have taken inspirarton from his history. Lakshmana and Samb were in deep love with each other. Samb was aware that his father Lord Krishna himself kidnapped Rukmini who loved him. Samb was also aware that his father Lord Krishna helped Arjuna in kidnapping Subhdra. Hence Samb was certain in his mind that his father would not oppose his marrying Lakshmana , even if he kidnap her. The reason for kidnapping Lakshmana was also become more evident that Duryodhan, would never had acceded for marriage of his daughter with Samb. This is the reason why Samb kidnapped Lakshmana and married her.
