The main reason for battle was the kingdom and disrespect of Draupadi. This chapter was extracted from a book on Mahabharat…I forgot the book and author name. This book has a complete different perspective and explains Mahabharat from the perspective of Kauravas. It is agreed upon that the kingdom belonged to Pandu and Pandavas deserved to become the King when they grow up. Shakuni played his trick.. He wanted kids of his sister to be the kings, so he played the trick.

The main reason for battle was the kingdom and disrespect of Draupadi. This chapter was extracted from a book on Mahabharat…I forgot the book and author name. This book has a complete different perspective and explains Mahabharat from the perspective of Kauravas. It is agreed upon that the kingdom belonged to Pandu and Pandavas deserved to become the King when they grow up.
Shakuni played his trick.. He wanted kids of his sister to be the kings, so he played the trick. He wanted everything to go peacefully. So he challenges Yudhishtira. Now Yudhishtira does some idiotic things that finally lead to war.. He keeps his kingdom at stake! Foolish isnt it? What was the need!! So it was just because of his EGO that he kept his kingdom at stake for a hope to win it back. After loosing Kingdom he kept his wife at stake!
Now those who say that draupadi was insulted and blame Karna and Durryodhan for Vastra haran and all the act, tell me one thing, Agar itna he pyar hai apni patni se.. Is wife some item to trade in the game?? Jab Draupadi ke patiyon ne usko Trading Item ka darja diya.. Duryodhan did what everyone used to do with the dasis who were won in the Games!!
She was just a dasi and not the princess Draupadi!! What Duryodhan did was bad indeed but using our wife as a trading item is worse than that! There are some things which even I pondered upon, was surprised and appreaciated the authors point of view…. When Duryodhan was lying at the lake.. He tells him the following few things to let him know that even if they have lost the battle, who was right and who was wrong. If Kauravas were doing Adharma..
You have cheated every time in the battle field.. You cheated even when I came to you for your help. Arjun sat next to Krishnas feet and Duryodhan sat next to his head.. When Krishna woke up.. Arjun asked Krishna and only thing left for Duryodhan was his army.
Krishna the cheater.. And now Krishna you have again cheated when you made me wear a small cloth before visiting my mother Gandhari. Okay here is another small incident if you guys dont know. At the end of the battle Duryodhan and Bhima were to fight… before going to fight Gandhari asked Duryodhan to meet her and that he should be completely naked. She had a powerful vision with heavently powers and he wanted to shield his complete body with her powers.
But Duryodhan didnt know why his mother has called him. He was going naked to her and on his way Krishna stopped him and said I understand that she is your mother but atleast cover your xxx parts with a small clothing or something. What will the world say?? On this Duryodhan wrapped a small piece of cloth around his waist.. Every inch of his body! Then the cunning Krishna goes to Bheema and advises him to hit Duryodhan on his thighs which are weak compared to other parts..
Bheema was great.. If you read in any book of Mahabharat.. Hence Duryodhan says that you cheated even in the battle of Bheema and me. Krishna, why are you people so furious about the Vastraharan case? When I did Vastra haran.. If they loved their wife so much…why did they traded her? You even cheated in case of Karna by intelligently taking away his Kavach Kundal, also in case of Ashwatthama and many other cases in battle field like the example of Clouds covering the Sun.
He entered and got killed, this is a WAR! Whts our fault? And then besides the lake Durryodhan tells one great thing to Krishna which is really worth to think upon…. He says.. Krishna my greatest sorrow will be that the world will never come to know what our thinking was, because always it is the survivors who write the History.
The history which will be read by future generations, you all Victors will write it your way, as you have killed every one who supported us. Duryodhan was a great king.. Truly mind boggling perspective which left me impressed for many years after my 12th std..
Like Like. Thanks for changing my opinion over kauravas,specially duryodhan….. This writer himself says abhimanyu entered n got killed… Coz its war then same way karna and others got killed… War is war right…. Ya u mi8 b ryt accrdn 2 ur knwledge of some kind of book. Buh sry Mr. Patil e1 I have gone thru da whle book of mahabharat. U clearly stated dat Krishna cheated. Nw y nt? Buh still he gav chance to Duryodhn by tellin hm dat as per da reignship rules eldest son becums da king 1st.
So it ws Yudhistr. Buh Duryodn refused. At dis Krshna said as u wsh by keepin a smile on his face. Dis is hw Duryodhn lost his last chance of nt dyin in vain which was adharma n dn he dnt have any ryt to state dat Krshna cheated neithr u. Anothr thing u said dat Shakuni was never wrng.? Accrdn to mahbhrt Shakuni knew dat his dice are goin to lsn to his numbrs. Dn hw cn u state dat Yudhistr was tradin his own wife. N Shakuni dint wanted nethn buh end of hastinapur agn adharma.
It was her sisters choice to blindfold herself fuh her husband. Nw dats da mattr of love n she neva askd her bro b4 doin it, dn hw cn Shakuni play his tricks wdout askin hr. I knw no brothr lyks to see own sistr in such conditn, still its adharma. Also Karna was da greatst no doubt invincible, buh e1 afta knwin dat pandavas wer his bros he fought vd them fuh sake of his frndshp.
Its kuntis mstake dat she lft him nower, n afta cumin to knw dat hes da strngest she tld him to fight frm pandavas side. Agn adharma. So at d end its all abt righteousness msg behind mahbhrt dat Krishna give us, cuz e1 Krshna was cursed by Gandhari dat e1 his own ppl will fite themselves n perish lyk Kuru Reign dis n perishd. So if e1 god have faced it dn who v r? N 1 mre imp thng its jus dat nobody knew dat Karna ws son of Kunti o else bein much eldest he was da 1 to b announcd as king of Hastinapur nt e1 Yudhistr n Duryodhn was far long in da list.
Yah…abhimanyu defeated karna n all others in chakravyuha, arjuna defeated him in viraat war with the kavach kundal, Dhritrashtra was a caretaker of hastinapur n when pandavas got matured, he had to appoint yudhishthira as king but he dint…. Hey, i agree to a lot of the stuff you have said but i guess you have been slightly harsh on Krishna here. I too read Mahabharat ki ek Saanjh in the 8th grade in school and loved it. Duryodhan had some wonderful qualities for eg: he did not believe in caste differences and believed that everyone should be treated equally regardless of their background and his friendship with karna was as pure as it gets but what about Lakshagrahay?
The world knows Arjun as a great warrior but he was not as good as Karan. As the story goes not only was Lord Krishna his charioteer but Hanuman himself was sitting on top of his chariot. In return Krishna said you have me as your charioteer and Hanuman for help as well and inspite of that he is doing that to you, who does he have??
Karan if he wanted could have killed him but he did not as Krishna made the sun set and Karan did not shoot the arrow and in return Arjun killed him when he was helpless.
If he wanted he could have prevented everything from happening but he had to do it to show the world that if you are on the right path to defeat the wrong even if you have to cheat, its not wrong. That was the whole idea of the Geeta or his conversation with Arjun before the war. Was looking for the script of Mahabharata ki ek saanjh. Found this. Loved it! It has quite a few points I absolutely agree to.
It has a very new perspective on many of the things we take for granted. By any chance, did you get hold of that book? I think its a play by Bharat Bhushan Agarwal. Bhishma had vouched for saving the Hastinapur empire remember his pratigya… and Drona had to fulfil his duties as a loyal minister in the court of Dhritarashtra…they knew they were on the side of the evil but their commitments and loyalty stood against their conscience…that doesnt prove that Karna or Duryodhana were justified in their action to call for a war..
