Rishi Kindama’s curse which caused Dhritarashtra to take over kingdom from Pandu

Once a Brahmin rishi, Kindama and his wife were making love in the forest when Yudhishthira’s father Pandu accidentally shot at them, mistaking them for deer. Before dying, Kindama cursed the king to die when he engages in intercourse with any woman. Due to this curse, Pandu was unable to father children. As an additional penance for the murder, Pandu abdicated the throne of Hastinapura, and his blind brother Dhritarashtra took over the reins of the kingdom.
