Happy-go-lucky Gandhari finds out that she is about to marry a blind man. She is devastated by it. Her dreams shattered to pieces. Her life doomed for eternity. The man she dreamed to be the king of her sand castles can never say that she looks pretty. He can never catch her if she falls down. He can never take a legitimate decision whatsoever. His blindness will blind him no matter what.
Saigon’s heart breaks at the sight of his beloved sister crying. Crying from the pain that all of this is creating. She deserves better. He wants the best for his little sister. But now there is a whole country at jeopardise here. Its either that she marries that blind prick or Hastinapur army ravages Gandharam.
Now Gandhari cannot absolutely allow that to happen. She is from a royal family and it is also her responsibility to keep her people safe. Even if it means that she destroys her own life.
From the very moment she learn of this she starts trying to imagine a life filled with darkness. Poor girl never thought that she could be of help to a blind man and that the heart is all that matters. Not that I am suggesting that Dhrithirashtra has a heart of gold. But still isn’t that how a woman convinces herself when she is forced to marry someone she does not like?
She tries and learns to deal with darkness. Even then i don’t understand what that is supposed to do with marrying a sightless person. Why can’t you decide and be his light? When you love the light so much and fear darkness, why not make him see the light that you love so much?
Seriously this story is filled with PMS-ing women who take the wrongest of decisions possible instead of thinking a little bit and then blame Krishna at the end for everything. He just went along the flow and tried to fix what little he could. What he did was almost like putting collate on a cracked wall which is about to collapse.
At the end we see her eyeing the blindfold.
Oil that has been dripping over Hastinapur has been just poured from a big tanker lorry thanks to Gandhari, courtesy Saguni! It is just a matter of time and events when a spark triggers off the fire that destroys everything as it sees!
Vijay TV has so gracefully removed all the Mahabharata episodes from Youtube. Sorry guys!
