Drona's sthuthi

Namaskarams to all Bhagavothamas of this group!! Hari OM!

Drona when he was about 300 years old is said to have offered his Prayer to the Lrd thus:

"Anayasena maranam,Vina dhyityena Jeevanam

Dheyime Kripaya krishna Thwayi bhakthimasanchalam "

I learnt this sloka in childhood from an elder  & I used to chant it often. But only recently I heard in a lecture by Dr.Srinivasan, a Sanskrit Scholar & Sri Vaishnava Scholar, that author of this Sloka is Sri Dronacharya.

Can amy one tell me the circumstances in which this Sloka emanated from Sri Dronacharya

Pranams to all !!

PN Kannan
