One of the greatest Hindu epics, Mahabharata is about human relationships and family dynamics. Each character in the epic tale has something to teach us. While Bhishma teaches us the virtues of commitment, Duryodhana teaches us the pitfalls of unchecked ambition. While Gandhari teaches us the beauty of spousal love and sacrifice, Draupadi teaches us about the powers of a woman. Krishna is the epitome of enlightenment, while Arjuna signifies the constant battle between the head and the heart. These stories are as relevant today as they were when written and mirror the societal interface through the times.
