- Shakuni's main beef was against Bhishma, as he was the one who arranged Gandhari's marriage... same with Amba, went from a her to a he because of the love she lost when Bhishma kidnapped her for his brother... in both of these cases, do you guys think Bhishma's behavior justifiable because it fit with the politics of the time (which he had to subscribe to because of his devotion to Hastinapur), or was taking control of these girls' future just plain wrong?
 
Was Gandhari forced to marry Dhritrashtra?  Wasn't the proposal accepted by her parents? 
Not by her dad, but by her - so her dad just went along with it. He was refusing Bhishma initially but then she said it's a yes from me! and he's like, but he's BLIND! and she goes, great, so when I'm old and grey he'll still love me the same way! bonus! and the rest is history.
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.
Yeps I love him too - both the actor and the character. I esp love the scene when he tells his dad that his pratigya is indeed politically responsible because his dad was not being a good king while he was pining for Satyavati - it was a really nice logical way to justify and modernize a kind of selfless act that otherwise seems so... yesterday Embarrassed So, anyways, just wanted to clarify that I put the prompt out there for fun, no personal issues with Pitamah.

Here's a different issue: Draupadi's disrobing. Did it really happen? Here are two articles which investigate this interesting question and argue that the whole incident may have been a later addition to the text.

Was Draupadi ever disrobed?

This question bugs me at times. 


Oh she asked several times, he just didn't listen... damn chipku Angry sounds like most guests I've had too, actually.
