Everyone breathes in air, but it’s a wise person who knows when to use that air to speak and when to exhale in silence! For someone’s power might shackle the other’s respect but when was a thought ever controlled? We spoke to 7 men who step into Draupadi’s shoes- reliving the actions that led to the great war of Kurukshetra!
"Life cannot be put at stake over a gamble as losing a game won’t matter much , but slightest hurt to self esteem would intensify the fire of justice. The first act, however, would be objecting to the dire necessity of marrying 5 men."
"I wouldn’t have humiliated Duryodhan and would have left the Pandavas the day they disrespected me in the Mahasabha. I wouldn’t have refused to marry Karna just because of his caste, as he emerged a winner in the swayamwar."
"No 5 husbands, no ‘juari’ hubby and I would have given Arjun some important advice about Dharma and Adharma!"
"I wouldn’t have compromised myself for 5 men neither be compromised by one of the hundred Kauravas and I would rip the men apart if ever I was behaved with in that way."
"I wouldn’t have obeyed Kunti’s order and end up being shared, I would not have accepted Dharmaraj gambling my respect and I would not have begged Krishna to help me during the Cheerharan."
"Would it have been better had I married Karna? Bheem should have been born as the eldest son. Will the years after war really change the condition of women?"
"It would have always pricked me that my five strong husbands could not save me from humiliation, although their hurt egos made them realise their potential later. I had the fortune to be Almighty’s sister and was being helped by God Himself!"
