For those of you who are generally pessimistic about the political scene in India, I have some good news. The state of India in the period described in the Mahabharata was to put it mildly, catastrophic.
the second point should be:
an unworthy prince is King-in-waiting,
let me venture a guess:
A blind powerless king,
an worthy prince-in-waiting,
a foreigner (shakuni) controlling the strings of the kingdom,
a rightful king kept out of power through machinations.
That’s one way of looking at it but not quite what I have in mind.
OK. Let me try. Mahabharat period concerned a civil war/intra-Indian degeneration. There were no foreign controllers. In contrast, our current state is due to 800 years of an imposed foreign colonialism by much lesser “civilizations”. It is much harder to recover from rot from within than to throw off a foreign yoke.
I’m ok but am currently not in Bangalore. Checked with my folks, they are all doing fine. Thanks for the concern!
Just heard about the bomb blasts in Bangalore. Hope you are ok as well as others
