Hey sweet people
Very nicely written by yall.. ..But let's add a bit contradicting angle to this for Fun / Masti in accordance with the theme of the Forum 'Based on a few references, My personal views and whims that refute the common belief of Ashwatthhama being a sinner who deserved such an awful punishment.
Let's discuss The
CURSE first 'As stated by a few Ashwatthhama shall suffer from malignant
stinking wounds all over his body that will perpetually vent out blood and
puss. He will have many dreadful diseases that can never be cured. He ll become
Very Old and jaded and yearn for the death. He ll suffer from such condition
till the END of KALIYUGA which I believe is still in its evolving phase. At the
end of Kaliyuga he ll meet Kalki who might give him Usshhap / A way to reverse
the curse. He ll be CheeranJeevi which I would resolve as Chirntan + Jeevi
with. Chirantan = Eternal..Something that has no End to it. The kaliyuga hasn't
ended.. The curse has not been revoked..So Ashwatthhama ought to live the
pitiful, agonizing life of a melancholy. Isolated from mundane pleasures.
Now let's briefly review his SINS that led to such a horrendous curse. The worst I have ever heard of.
Let me now try and contradict the popular belief that Pandavas were never wrong and all their actions, even atrocious ones, sent a cryptic, notional message to the masses that spelled justice and Truth. Let's for once revisit the events that took place during, before and even after those 18 electrifying days that marked the most fiercely fought war ever.
I ll jot down the events as I recall them. Obviously not in the chronological order.
D. Karna was killed when he was unarmed 'and off the chariot ..So was his Son Vrush Sen ..who was attacked and bailed up by 10's of Maha Rathi's at a go' And beheaded him ..Which was also against the rules..let's not resort to ' Everything is fair in LOVE and WAR' slogan here ..Fair would be when both sides are allowed that '
I can present ya with many such instances and events .but I think I would stop here for now ..Till someone decides to carry on with this cranky debate further ..Mahabharat is pretty complex'and the message there is far more cryptic to understand by merely reading that. Pretty eventful and engrossing with the kaleidoscopic persona that depicted that in a most trilling way. Its notional..and it illustrates the importance of Karma Yoga ..without being dithered and getting off your own beliefs and objectives '
Ashwatthhama is illusive 'He is more of a tendency and a feeling..That of guilt and remorse within us all 'Which never dies..Which is carried over centuries..He lives somewhere in a far niche of everyone's mind 'All the time 'He is Immortal '.
PS: I so wish the Lord had at least offered him a privilege to use the Internet connection ..Huh! Poor soul must be sulking somewhere ..all alone ..I and him coulda helped each other get rid of this deep rotting lonely feeling '
