Sloka 1:28 & 29
Gist of the sloka:
O Krishna, seeing the battle enthusiasm in my relatives who have assembled here, my arms are shivering, my throat is parched, and my entire body is shaking.
Arjuna expresses to Lord Krishna as follows: Seeing the senior warrior relatives in the battlefield ready to fight, I am ashamed. We, who are well knowledgeable have deliberately put them and ourselves into this situation. I am ashamed that we put ourselves into this state of affairs.
Seeing them, I am unable to speak, my body is shivering, and my arms are getting weak.
Arjuna first shows compassion, then shame and finally fear. The exact states which a person undergoes in real life.
