While Maharaja Santanu was on a hunting excursion, he saw the male and female children lying in the forest, and out of compassion he took them home. Consequently, the male child was known as Krpa, and the female child was named Krpi. Krpi later became the wife of Dronacarya.
Thus end the Bhaktivedanta purports of the Ninth Canto, Twenty-first Chapter, of the Srimad-Bhagavatam, entitled The Dynasty of Bharata.
