Which is 1st verse from the Bhagavad Gita?

The first verse of the Bhagavad Gita is: 
 "Dhritarashtra said: O Sanjaya, what did my son and the sons of Pandu do when they assembled on the sacred plain of Kurukshetra eager for battle?" 

 This verse is spoken by Dhritarashtra, the blind king of Hastinapura, who asks his charioteer Sanjaya to describe the events of the Kurukshetra war between the Pandavas and the Kauravas. 

The conversation between Dhritarashtra and Sanjaya forms the framework for the teachings of the Bhagavad Gita, which is a dialogue between the warrior Arjuna and his charioteer Krishna on the battlefield of Kurukshetra.
