Krishna ~ Har ek roop mein teri leela nyari


He who is the winner of fortune and can shoot from either hand. The son of Pritha who has mastered sleep and rides magnificent white steeds. That wielder of the Gandiva, who was given the Kirti diadem by his father Lord Indra. That unconquerable hero, who is most dear to Lord Krishna…that warrior’s name is Arjun.

"Devtao ka karya karne janmi hai yeh putri Drupad…iska jatan karna. Iss se mulyavan tumne kabhi kuch paaya hi nahin…aur naa kabhi kuch paa sakoge. Sansar mein tumhara smaran issi ke naam se jeevit hoga…yeh Draupadi kehlayegi”

Gandhaari: The Queen Who Blindfolded Herself

Some say that it was her marital devotion and she covered her eyes in empathy to her blind-born husband, others believe that it was passive resistance to her forced marriage.

Either way, this defining choice of Gandhaari, the princess of Gandhaar, is exemplary of steely, indefatigable conviction and iron will. For a wife who denies herself the sight of her husband, a mother who does not look upon her newborns, a sister who refuses to see the face of her only remaining blood family, if she does not possess the power of stiffly and rigidly upholding the severest of resolutions, then there are none who do.

However, her decision to blindfold herself was more selfish and degenerative than selfless and constructive. It blinded her to the conspiracies her vengeful brother was hatching right in her home, it hampered what just might have been a possibly content marriage, it distanced her from her spouse, and most importantly, it obstructed her duties as a mother. Perhaps if Gandhaari had foreseen the fatal consequences of her seemingly positive undertaking, she might have aided prevent one of the biggest War in the History of Humankind.

But then, there is no stopping Fate, is there?
