If Sarala Mahabharat interests you then try googling for 'Bhil Mahabharata' or "Bheel Mahabharata". Wink

Sorry for being late guys, had classes bac to back... but gotta admit reading that I was missed got me feeling like the shizz LOL j/k... thanks for addressing the prompt, Gauri! I agree, Amba might've gone a bit bonkers in geting as mad at Bhishma as she did because he tried to do the right thing after, but it's the before that makes me head-scratch... in every version I've read, it was forceful as you would think it is when you hear the word "kidnap", not some friendly "wanna ride with me"... so, I don't know if that's justifiable. I don't have the hard copy now but when I get home this weekend, I'll check... I use the one published by the Ramakrishna Math btw... but if I remember correctly, Satyavati asked Bhishma to propose the marriage legitimately to smooth over the rocky relationship between Kashi and Hastinapur... it got laughed off, so Bhishma's motive can be inferred as vengeance... and IMO, that should be carried out against the king - not the girls.

And as far as the Shakuni-and-the-goat story, I combed through this and can't find it anywhere: http://www.mahabharataonline.com/ Not much on his motives or even the timeframe for when he permanently moved to Hastinapur is in the "official" texts, as far as I remember... the angle BRC took was the one I tried to reflect in the prompt, that Shakuni thought it was condescending of Bhishma to think of pairing his sister up with a blind man, hence Gufi Paintal's perfect grudgy grunt everytime he said "Pitamah Bhishma... Evil Smile" But, if anybody could find some other texts that might fill in the blanks on his character other than the goat story, I'd really appreciate it... Goat story does help him make sense, but the ritual itself is weird to me so I'd like to see what else is out there.

But thanks Gauri! I came, I read, I liked Big smile

Also, idk if this was mentioned before but the Amba and Co. swayamvar was the same freebie type that Kunti had, no challenge - just the girl's choice. Prehisoric version of The Bachelorette.
