Lessons From The Mahabharata

by G.N. Das

The story of the Mahabharata is not only of the Great War between the Kouravas and Pandavas for a period of eighteen days in the battlefield of Kurukshetra near Delhi.

As a matter of fact the supreme lesson held out by the great Epic is the one with which Vyasa Deva, the author, starts-viz. When men live together as one family they not only thrive, but they exist as a great community or race.

As long as the Pandavas and Kauravas lived together they not only thrived as two great wings of a race but as one and the same race of the Kurus.

As we proceed with the story of the Mahabharata we notice how this was stabilised as long as they lived together with each other.

And we have noticed how the Great War reduced the powerful Kurus and decimated them to a struggling few to call themselves as remnants of the great Kuru race.

This holds good not only in the case of few families living together in small units but number of races living in the world culminating in the truth noticed in the maxim "One World One Family" which is the title of the next work by the same author.
