Rishi Vaishampayana continued “ Oh! King Janamejaya, one of the experts in the construction of passageways and friend of Vidura approached Pandavas in loneliness and spoke “I am experienced in the construction of tunnels was send by Vidura. I would like to offer my sincere service to you. Kindly educate me what I should do? Vidura has intense faith in me, it was one of the reasons he instructed me to help Pandavas and assist Yudhishtira in the construction of passageway. It was preplanned by Purochan to set fire on the entrance of this palace in the dark hours of Amavasya on a Chathurthi day. This deceitful plot was conceived by sinful Duryodhana, son of Drutharashtra to kill Pandavas along with their mother Kunthi. Oh! son of Pandu, I have understood that Vidura spoke about the treacherous plan in an outcaste language/mlecha and you have answered him in the same slang. I have mentioned the above words with a sincere intention to obtain your trust.”
The righteous Yudhishtira, son of Kunthi who always speaks the truth started to pronounce after listening to Kankan, “Oh! Virtuous one, I know you as an affectionate and trustworthy friend of Vidura, I know you are faithful to Vidura who is aware of all that happenings. You will be treated as close associate of us now onwards and serve us in the same manner as you do to Vidura, never differentiate us from Vidura. We will treat you in the same way as we do to Vidura and protect us from the evils like Vidura. This palace was constructed by Purochan at the evil command of Duryodhana, who is having all those wealth and evil associates to haunt us. Kindly provide us your sincere assistance and protect us from the death in the wildfire, the wicked plan of Duryodhana should not be successful. This palace was constructed close to his stockroom of armaments and ammunition; it has huge walls with no escape route. Vidura was well aware of the treacherous plans of Duryodhana from its beginning and duly informed us. Kshathri/Vidura has given plentiful instructions and information about the same and warned us. You should work without the knowledge of Purochan who is vigilant and cautiously waiting at the entrance of this palace.” Kankan cordially replied “So let it shall be “. Shortly, a huge tunnel was constructed inside the palace; it has the mouth at the center of the palace that was skillfully covered with the wooden planks which was not possible to recognize easily for Purochan who was always watchful. Pandavas were vigilant at all times with their armaments, they slept with their weapons. They travelled through the woodlands and conducted hunting expedition in the day hours. Oh! King Janamejaya, they pretended that they have absolute faith in Purochan though they least believed in him. In this way, they lived safely in the Palace of Wax. None of the people of Varanavarth was aware of the plans of Pandavas. It was Kankan, who was the faithful associate of Vidura was aware about the proceedings of Pandavas.”
