“Whatever is here is found elsewhere. But whatever is not here is nowhere else”

Mahabharata is an epic of brilliant extent. Mahabharata is an archive of Indian history, mythology, theory, profound secrets, legends, social sacred texts, laws, law, political methodology, financial models, administering models, remote arrangements, family structures, instructive styles and a whole lot more.

FUN FACT: The name signifies ‘the incredible story of the Bharatas’. Bharata was an early progenitor of both the Pandavas and Kauravas who battle each other in an extraordinary war, however, the word is likewise utilized blandly for the Indian race, so the Mahabharata some of the time is alluded to as ‘the immense story of India’.

Mahabharata covers each part of human life. It covers substances of life. It covers the human frailties, indicates character imperfections, highlights imprudences of the colossal and growth of society. Mahabharata takes a gander at the world as it truly may be. It uncovered the unalloyed substances of life. Mahabharata is not fluffy, delicate or based on sandcastles of vision. Thoughts of ‘widespread love’, ‘unqualified pardoning’, ‘crew of humankind’ and so forth are awesome standards, stupendous beliefs, yet as a rule, we find that they don’t exist, all things considered. Mahabharata investigates individuals look for this vision and how they admission.

By and large, we Hindus appear to incline toward worshiping instead of learning from our sagas. We have kept both Ramayan and the Mahabharata on such a high platform, that we have never tried to really read, investigate or faultfinder the substance to perceive how it can be incorporated in our lives. We have assumed it’s substance are so sacrosanct and the occasions are so far back before, that we can’t in any way, shape or form gain from them. We bow, we festoon and we offer incense before these incredible stories, however tragically, we don’t attempt and take in life’s fundamental lessons from them. Whereas, we should.

In the event that for sure Hindus had disguised the lessons of Ramayan and Mahabharata, we would not be in the social, political, money related or profound chaos we are in right at this point. For instance, if we Hindus comprehended, acknowledged and lived by the laws of karma, none of us would be mean to anyone not to mention our own family, companions, neighbors, and kinsmen.

Do we not know the results of being mean to even the littlest individual from our sacred texts?

However, we witness unpleasantness being calmly honed in our movies, cleanser musical shows, neighborhoods, families and work puts constant. Untruths being told for the most unimportant things. Why?

However, debasement is overflowing in India and individuals pay fixes for everything from revoking a movement ticket to winning contracts and even decisions.

And why so? Cause we have not gained anything from our epics.
