I have travelled too far where I can't look back!(This thread is the winner of the TOW for the week 10th July – 16th July 2016)
I was watching an episode of B R Chopra's Mahabharat the other day and the conversation between Gandhari and her elder son Suyodhan got my attention. The war between Kaurav and Pandav was in progress and seemed to be coming to an end. Bhishma, Drona and Karna, the great warriors have lost their lives and the Pandav slowly emerging towards victory. At this juncture, Gandhari asked her son to approach for a compromise to save the remaining crew of his team.
Suyodhan retorted, "I have travelled too far where I can't look back!"
Let's evaluate the situation. Is Suyodhan's reaction right at that point of time? Perhaps, so. Whether right or wrong, a decision was taken and already executed. He knows it has costed more. Having reached to that stage, it's time for him to take up the mantle in spite of an inevitable defeat. That should be the spirit of a true warrior. I am not trying to redefine the episode of the great epic. But that simple sentence with a broken heart made me to think like that.
What is your take on this?
