Very well put. All the other relevant examples too. Totally understood your point and agree with it. I think dividing nation is not bad but dividing them improperly or with injustice is not so good idea. The last episode of Mahabharat, I guess, BRC tried to put more in modern context (Indo-Pak division decision by Gandhiji, ateet ka dhancha badlo, etc etc.). That lecture seemed to be practical for current people (need not be correct as you said and everyone need not have independent judgement abilities or educated conscience or knowledge about inaccuracies of the serials and willingness to go through the actual epics.). But complexity was created for sure. One can say at some places (not proper at all places), they had to do it actually not to elevate the character but to save the character from being misunderstood also perhaps. We might think that over here this dialog is BRC's invention and therefore portrays a character wrongly but that might actually be the philosophy of that character elsewhere in the epic shown (only it creates chronological confusion - that character might have become that mature or righteous or of that thought later on). Serial can't cover everything in the epic and if it portrays the epic as it is but only parts of it, that on the contrary make people misunderstand certain characters. So only those efforts to twist were OK which otherwise portrayed the epic and characters correctly as a summary of the overall epic (though not the exact replica of that specific incident). I mean if Yudhishthir's entire character is not shown as it is replicating the entire epic line by line but only some parts are shown as they are, people might misunderstand him to be lusty or selfish. If studying overall, he was not selfish, and a specific dialog might create such picture, skipping that dialog would be with the intention of stopping his character from being misunderstood rather than elevating his goodness. If you can't line by line picturize the epic on screen (impossible due to resource constraint), innovativeness can be approved by the viewer who also is the epic lover as long as the philosophy is the philosophy learnt from the over all epic only from within itself - Geeta or any other part (just the dialog in one scene of the serial taken from some other incident of the epic - cross philosophies within the epic to be able to practically produce a short movie or serial on epic summary - as correct summary of characters as possible.). Certainly it should not be the own philosophy as you said. I would like to find some time some day to go through entirely Udhyog parva, Adi parva, Shanti parva and Van parva. But exactly those are the lengthier of all.Big smile

Here are some of the Orkut thread links if you have account, which had the topic relevant to your example in your last post. Nothing related to this poll topic though so we won't continue about it here.




Last episode of Mahabharat serial


Analysis of complex dialogs of Mahabharat serial


A specific topic covered in Shantiparva (Apad dharma - saying a lie appropriate)



And yes. I couldn't find Ghosh-yatra parva within Vanparva of KMG translation of sacred-text link.

hehe, I luv all three Pandavs tooo, sometimes its very hard to choose.EmbarrassedEmbarrassed But i luv Arjun the best because he was shri Krishna's bestest friend, and he was always loyal to him.Day Dreaming

I also think Yudhisthir was a very great soul, nothing bad to say about him from me because I think it's really remarkable how he stuck to his dharma despite obstaclesEmbarrassed, and I also luv Bheem a lot tooo, he was the most sacrificial and suffered inwardly.Cry
