EPIC DRAMA

Written by Shankar Shesh

Gandhari — one of the characters in the epic Mahabharata.
 Play that highlights lot many human emotions and politics…
 
When Duryodhana would ask for her blessing of victory during the Kurukshetra war, Gandhari would only say "may victory find the side of righteousness".
This play strongly highlights the cause of downfall of Kauravas with a different point of view altogether. The Bhishma, the Mentor of all the Mahabharatha, never wanted to let the big Dynasty of Hastinapur fall. He wanted a legal heir of Dhritrashtra to handle the Kingdom despite the fact that Duryodhana's cousins Pandavas were much more eligible to handle it. But Bhishma, wanted a proper lineage to follow. He was not willing to hand it over to Dhristra’s cousin Pandavas. To do so, he made the relation with Gandhar King and seeked his daughter as the groom for Dhritrashtra. She was not made aware that her husband was in fact a blind. Having created a utopian picture of her husband in her mind as someone with a broad chest, well built physique and a mesmerizing "Eyes", she departs from Gandhar To Hastinapur.After reaching Hastinapur she becames aware that her utopian picture is nothing but of a blind man, whom she was going to get married.
