Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Srimad Bhagavatam 9.21.36
tad drishtva kripayagrihnac
chantanur mrigayam caran
kripah kumarah kanya ca
drona-patny abhavat kripi
tat -- those twin male and female babies; drishtva -- seeing; kripaya -- out of compassion; agrihnat -- took; santanuh -- King Santanu; mrigayam -- while hunting in the forest; caran -- wandering in that way; kripah -- Kripa; kumarah -- the male child; kanya -- the female child; ca -- also; drona-patni -- the wife of Dronacarya; abhavat -- became; kripi -- named Kripi.
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 Kripa, and the female child was named Kripi. Kripi 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."
