11-Morality in MBH
Mahaabhaarat is not a story where one writes it carefully and the reader cannot find any wrong or black spot, just only morality and Dharm and ethics and good things to follow. It is the history, sequence of actual events of human beings where if there are some people as the followers of Dharm and ethics (Yudhishthir, Gaandhaaree) , at the other place they are full of evils (Duryodhan, Shakuni), mistakes, adamant (Dhritraashtra), slave of their emotions (Dhritraashtra, Bheem), living for their revenge only (Drupad, Karn, Shakuni, Drone). For the same reason, it is not an exception if you can find some black spots in it. The following examples are of those people whose actions compel us to measure the morality whether it it is really worth to rise so high for that cause for which those people rose themselves so high. These events described here, are according to the version of KML Ganguly's MBH translation in English on Internet whose shorter and simpler version I have tried to present here without trying to lose its main points and sense.
Shaantanu's Vow to Gangaa
Gaandhaaree Ties Cloth Strip on Her Eyes
But in my opinion, if Gaandhaaree had not tied this clothe strip on her eyes, she could see everything and guide in a better way to Dhritraashtra (although she still guided him in her best way, there is no complain about it; but you never know what she could do if she could see the world). But now since both could not see their world was different; if she could see, perhaps their world would have been different.
