Why Partha's Sarathy?

Srimate Ramanujaya Namah.

Dear Bhagavatas,

In my opinion, Lord Krishna chose to bew the charioteer of Arjuna only out of His causeless mercy. Otherwise, He could have been the charioteer of Yudhishtira who appears to be much more pious and learned than Arjuna.

Lord Krishna's story in Srimad Bhagavata has a beautiful answer to this question. 

When we want to pray to Him, we first take bath, perform sandhyAvandanam and then only recite vishNu sahasranAmam or some other stOtra. on the other hand, mother yaSOdA, did not even have to brush her teeth or wash her eyes to have KrushNAnubhavam. Now the question comes as to why Lord krishna chose Yasoda as His mother. why not vasishta's wife 
arundhatI or Goddess saraswatI? the answer is nirhEtuka krupA. 
fotunate ar the ones on whom the gracious glances f divya dampatis fall. rest everybody is unforutnate.
