Andha Ka Putra Andha
She didn't allow other wives to stay
She washed her hair with Dushasen's blood
She was the root cause of war...
She was in love with Karna
I don't know, which jerk started these rumours about her...
Most of the negative points about Draupadi is just rumour, and not part of the actual epic.
I wish I could make other people, on other sites see this. Tired of fighting for my Draupadi.
Really tired now. Tired to see, what kind of a false image people have in their heads, of her.
i agree with everything you said but not with the point highlighted in pink
how is this her negative?
i know some people may view it .like that but how
is it wrong for a woman to want revenge from the person who wronged her?
she wanted to wash her hair not because she was blood thirsty but because it was symbolic of the fact that she has been avenged because her humiliation started from the point when dusashan dared to touch her hair and it was avenged when she washed her hair with the same person's blood
doesn't a woman have the right to avenge her self ?why should she be accepted to behave perfectly in all situations?if she has been wronged definitely she will show her kali roop why not
i know its not part of the actual epic it is probbaly something added to show her vengeful nature or her want for justice and this act just symbolizes that i dont see anything wrong or negative in it
In fact i think the reason that she fought for her justice and didn't spare the people who had wronged her sets her apart from other mythological heroines and that is why i like her
the only problem is that generally this part of her nature gets the most attention and people forget she was much more than that she was also sober and kind.
After everything that had happened she was very much loyal and devoted to her husbands, she spent 13 years in exile when she could have also stayed with her father ,she took great care of dhrit and gandhari.So yes she definately wanted justice for herself but she had other character traits as well which generally dont get much attention
but no matter what at end of the day she is the heroine of one of the greatest epic's in the world and no amount of negative comments can change that
