These include the Tamil street theatre, terukkuttu and kattaikkuttu , the plays of which use themes from the Tamil language versions of Mahabharata , focusing on Draupadi.

Although the Kaurava is the senior branch of the family, Duryodhana, the eldest Kaurava, is younger than Yudhishthira, the eldest Pandava.

It is known that Vyasa compiled the work called Jaya by assembling the narratives of bards present in the army of each Kaurava general. These versions would correspond to the addition of one and then another 'frame' settings of dialogues. Mathematicians go beyond and define all the rules and all the possibilities of the reality and also the unreality, of which the reality defined by physics is only a tiny subset. We also have three abridged versions of Ramayana in Vana Parva one (smallest, few verses long) narrated by Lomasha to Yudhisthira, another (smaller, a chapter long) narrated by Hanuman to Bhima and then another (biggest, 18 chapters long ) by Markandeya to Yudhisthira! Denying that is like unto denying chemistry and physics by a biologist. The jubilant Kauravas insult the Pandavas in their helpless state and even try to disrobe Draupadi in front of the entire court, but her honour is saved by Krishna who miraculously creates lengths of cloth to replace the ones being removed. The Pandavas are required to go into exile for 12 years, and in the 13th year must remain hidden.

The doctors study the human body, organs, tissues, cells and cell organs. Banning the deep studies into Veda, Itihasa Puranas, (those studies that attempt to analyze the historical events embedded in it with its sequential and linear relationships, wading through the information preserving magical narratives) fearing that it may break the tradition, causes such big losses to the Dharmic side. According to what one character says at Mbh. The throne is then given to Pandu because of Dhritarashtra's blindness. Soon, enough people will realize the fault in the idea of not trying to date the information layers or the events of Mahabharata or Ramayana or Puranas and the notion that we need to treat it as a monolithic un-layered text, authored exactly like we are seeing it today by a single person (Vyasa or Valmiki). These include the Tamil street theatre, terukkuttu and kattaikkuttu , the plays of which use themes from the Tamil language versions of Mahabharata , focusing on Draupadi. , Attempts to date the events using methods of archaeoastronomy have produced, depending on which passages are chosen and how they are interpreted, estimates ranging from the late 4th to the mid-2nd millennium BCE.

Between 1919 and 1966, scholars at the Bhandarkar Oriental Research Institute, Pune, compared the various manuscripts of the epic from India and abroad and produced the Critical Edition of the Mahabharata, on 13,000 pages in 19 volumes, followed by the Harivamsha in another two volumes and six index volumes. Any verse not found in the critical edition is a much later version when Mahabharata diversified into regional versions so that there is no full quorum agreement on those verses among all the regional variants.

A report by the Greek writer Dio Chrysostom (c. 40 - c. 120 CE) about Homer's poetry being sung even in India seems to imply that the Iliad had been translated into Sanskrit. Pandu then retires to the forest along with his two wives, and his brother Dhritarashtra rules thereafter, despite his blindness.

He then even gambles his brothers, himself, and finally his wife into servitude. The essence viz the civilization-morals, values and lessons are embellished or decorated with glowing magical attributions which we call as the magical narratives. In a time when everything needed to be committed by memory, and transmitted by word of mouth, with no possibility of inscribing huge information with details, this would have been a disaster.

There is one more process that differentiates Itihasa Purana authoring process from the history writing process. In conclusion, a deep dive into the core of Veda Itihasa Puranas, wading through the mesmerizing structures of magical narratives by analyzing the events embedded inside it focusing on its sequential nature and linearity will not break the traditional reading of the Veda Itihasa Puranas, but only strengthen it and defend it against the alien paradigms, like how mathematics support physics, how physics support chemistry and how chemistry supports biology. Dhritarashtra wanted his own son Duryodhana to become king and lets his ambition get in the way of preserving justice.
