Was Gandhari forced to marry Dhritrashtra?  Wasn't the proposal accepted by her parents? 
 
I need to know what happened there for me to sucessfully defend Bheeshm Pitameh - one of my absolute favorite character from MB thanks to Mukesh Khanna who played the role. 

I loved his voice...

hmmm.....looks like it was a common practice in those days to win a princess in swyamvar.  I was under the impression that who ever won, had to marry the princess.  However, I now know of two scenarios that conflict with my understanding.  They are:
 
1. Bheeshm winning the swyamwar and then kidnapping all three sisters to be married off to Vichitravirya
 
2. Karn trying to win Draupadi for his friend Duryodhan after Duryodhan was unable to even lift the dhanush.
 
Another point to ponder --- If Amba was in love with Shalve, why did she agree to be part of the swyamwar?  She should have known that she will be given to anyone who wins her in the swyamwar. The swyamver was different in this case as the three princesses were allowed to choose whoever that's why Amba agreed and was going to put her jaimala on Shalve Naresh...
 
Bheeshm did send her back to Shalve who refused her.  How come she did not request Vichitravirya to marry her upon getting rejected by Shalve?  Why did she request Bheeshm who could not marry given his oath? She argued that despite his oath he should have known the concequences of his actions.. Therefore he should be the one who accept her as he was the one who kidnapped her..
 
Keeping these points in mind --- can we blame Bhishm for Amba's plight?  I think not.  Hope Lola reads this analysis.
 
Thanks for the input, SRD. Your welcomeEmbarrassed

Oh & I somehow thot Shakuni was angry because Bheeshma had chosen Gandhari for his blind nephew & not Pandu. Its because Dhritirastra was blind that Pandu got chosen as king though being younger. Thereby gandhari's children lost their chance as heir to the throne.
