Let me expalin with examples what i understand of interpretation
For example the fact that Draupadi had married 5 pandavas is a true thing that happened which can be and has been interpreted in differnet way.What this serial has done with Draupadi getting married to 5panadavas can be called interpretation since they have tried to interpret reason for the same on their own .More humane reasons other than that of previous birth.This can be called interpretation
But showing arjuna and subhadra meeting befor swayamaber(when subhadra logically is a child) ,showing a character like premvada stopping kunti from telling the truth,showing arjuna washing karan's feet or running through fire in lakshagarah or pandavs creating big hole with their power punch in lakshagarh isnt an interpretation becuase there is nothing written in the epic that even indicates towards these things.this is called adding fictional elements for drama
Agree fully, but to play devil's advocate (since that itself is extremely fun) ...
Interpretation is the action of explaining the meaning of something. Now, we all agree that this serial is labeled under Mythological Drama, hence religion cannot be stated as a factor (mythology vs. religion -- two totally different things; mythology can be part of a religion, but religion isn't a part of mythology).
The actions are all there in the text and I will, in the course of this hearing, use your examples against you
Let's start with the arjun and subhadra meeting before the swayamvar. Ship!! Subhadra is a child ... okay, good argument. (apparently Arjun was 50 when he married Subhadra and 33 when he married Draupadi... source: http://www.drpvvartak.com/publishings/Birthdate_of_Krishna.pdf))
But to uphold to honor of my client, spatel23
, I shall show you that Subhadra was far from a child.
Subhadra was not born when Arjun was in Hastinapura, after completing his gurukul. So it must be logical to say that Subhadra used to visit Arjun in the form of a spirit (not like a ghost or anything, but you know how gods and goddess appear but don't appear... something like that). Either that, OR the subhadra who we see here is NOT the subhadra who married Arjun.
I give up. I quit. You win, spatel23 loses. Your Honor, I surrender my case and plead my client is insane and was not in a stable state of mind when he made this argument
(DISCLAIMER: HUMOR PURPOSES.. )
... seriously, I highly would expect that Arjun's age when he married Subhadra, as well as Subhadra's age when she married Arjun probably came up during the "research phase," which implies and supports Sabhayata fully...
My original intention was to say that interpretation can be taken in many ways. For example, with the Pandavas punching a hole. In the original, there was probably something about a miner. Now what SP did was they interpreted (see what I did there
) the miner as not an actual character, and they interpreted the hole that was dug, as not actually being there... with all these interpretations, they simply added one of their own - a super panch pandavas packed punch
Ok, so in the Gurukul days, princes of Yadav race - vrishnis and whatever, they wee also training with the Kuru Princes.
How old must she be then if the Yadav princes used to tell Arjuna about Subhadra? he was well above 14 at that time since Yudhi was 16 when Pandu died.
