God:the physic par excellence (contd.from Arjuna's state of immobilization)

His senses utterly bewildered and saying that he will not fight, Arjuna falls silent. This is almost a catatonic unconscious-like state as in drunken stupor; it is the rebellion of unchastened emotions. No amount of coaxing or counselling can elicit any response - positive or negative. But for the... Sign in to see full entry.

Dejection as a Tool for Rejuvenation

All of Arjuna’s chivalry vanishes into thin air as when he requests Krishna to place his chariot in the middle of the battlefield, so that he could observe as to whom all dared fight with as skillful and brave a warrior as himself. Krishna the lord, could detect the slight stench of the ego in his... Sign in to see full entry.

The Battle begins and yet not begins.

No sooner did the grand old sire of the Kuru dynasty, Bhishma, saw Duryodhana's somewat pallid countenance, than he roared the blood-chilling roar of a lion and blew his conchshell announcing the start of the battle, and bringing cheer unto Duryohana. 'For, as when the raging fevers boil the blood,... Sign in to see full entry.

Thus Begins the Battle

It is Day Ten on the battlefield. Bhishma, the unconquerable grand old one-man-army felled by Arjuna, using Shikhandi as a shield against whom he could not use his weaponry, lay in the battlefield on a bed of arrows, yet alive but removed from action. Sanjaya, Dhritarashtra’s charioteer comes back... Sign in to see full entry.
