So it's the due date for my assignment and all the devils better read and discuss else I will come after you for revenge and it can get very nasty...just ask Parsa.
I have a new professor her name is Professor Airport. If you don't know whom I am speaking of, search somewhere below she is probably there. So anyways, Professor Airport has given me the assignment of deciphering Arjun through the study of Mahabharata.
We have had the pleasure of meeting very interesting non-existent characters a few weeks ago. There is Anvesha Khurana better known as Non-existent sister and then Arjun Rathod the stealthy villain (maybe). Arjun is a character that can go in many directions. He has the prospective to be molded in to whatever the story demands, he can transform from villain to saint.
Arjun Singh Rathod was first introduced to us while competing in a street fight. What was the point of introducing him to us in such a way? Introducing Arjun in an underground fight has left is with the impression that he is a risk taker and likes danger. It told us that he is not someone that you want as your enemy. Not only does he take part in the fight against the undefeated champion, but also succeeds in his battle. He is a character with strong will and determination.
Arjun may come off as a hard-hitting character, but when we see him in the scene with his sister, Naintara, we realize that he is also a caring brother. He vows to keep her safe and swears revenge upon Maan Singh Khurana, whom he believes has ruined his sisters' life. This kind side to Arjun might as well be his weakness.
Naintara has poisoned Arjun's mind and has not told him the entire truth. He is misguided and possibly digging his own grave. Being ill informed always leaves blind spots. The blind spots may lead to his loss. He does not seem to be completely evil and upholds morals to some extent. For example, giving Geet advice despite her being a stranger to him. The question is what will he lose? What if he really falls in love with Anvesha while playing his games? If he does, then when his truth comes out Anvesha may not accept him.
Arjun, it appears is proactive and a planner. He makes foolproof preparations before taking any action. From the first moment, he has drawn out how he will bring down Maan. Maan and Geet are getting married and it just so happens that Arjun opens an event management company. He has done his research. This gives him the upper hand. He is able to make his way in to their home. Not only that, he has also made a place in the hearts of the women in Maan's life, Geet, Daadi, and Anvesha. The women in Maan's life have the most influence over him. Arjun possibly has discovered that.
Taking Inspiration from the Mahabharata
(Disclaimer: Do not kill me if I kill the epic. This is purely from my POV and is open for debate.)
Note: I will be looking at this thorough Arjun's point only.
Character from the Mahabharata that Arjun can possibly resemble is Duryodhona.
as a character has immense potential to grow. He basically has grey shades. He is neither good nor bad. He
can change according to the information he is given. Through his eyes, he is
not doing anything debauched, but merely fulfilling the duties of a
brother. To him, Maan is the
felon. Like any other person, he
believes in justice being served for the ones who have been wronged. In this
case, it's his sister. He is simply taking the side of his sister and fighting
for her. He may be misinformed, but that does not change to what extent he is
willing to ruin someone's life. That is the major difference between him and
someone who is actually a positive character. He uses his intelligence for evil
despite knowing the difference between right and wrong. Positive characters
tend to stay one-dimensional. However, someone like Arjun can take many forms,
may it be good, evil, or both. Now that is an appealing individual. He is
someone who adds the right amount of spice and twist in the story, someone who
should always stay true to his shady nature.
Here goes a song in the name of Arjun.
"Annie are you okay? Are you okay Annie? You've been hit by, you've been struck by a smooth criminal"
Character Index for Mahabharata (If you are not familiar with Mahabharata)
Arjuna - One of the five Pandava brothers. He is the most skilled archer and is always able to hit his target where he wants. Though he was very accomplished and could take down any enemy, he maintained high morals.
Karna - Son of Kunti and Surya the sun god. Kunti bore him as an unwed mother and could not raise him in fear of society. So she set him down the river and was adopted by Adhiratha. He did not know the origin of his birth till later. Karna's friendship and loyalty to Duryodhona bound him to fight against the Pandava brothers. But he did not have knowledge of Duryodhona's enmity against the Pandavas. He especially had animosity against Arjuna for winning over Draupadi. Is defeated by Arjuna during the battle of Kurukshetra.
Duryodhona - Son of the Kauravas. His father was born blind and hence was denied power over the land, while the Pandavas were given power. This created a hatred for them in Duryodhona's heart as he was denied the throne. Duryodhona was
Sakuni - Duryodhona's uncle who had misguided him filled more poison in his heart for the Pandavas. Sakuni, wanted to take the Kuru Kingdom from the Pandavas for his nephews.
Subadra ' She was one of Arjuna's wives and sister of Krishna. She marries Ajruna despite her family being against it because they were cousins. Krishna advises Arjuna and Subadra to elope because Krishna had a soft spot for Arjuna and wanted the best for his sister. Subadra then pretends to kidnap Arjuna, so her family does not blame him for their elopement.
