Let me tell you a tale. A tale of the most glorious person to have existed.

Someone who was kind and gentle and a genuine ray of sunshine in a story otherwise clouded by doom and despair.

#Mahabharat #Arjun

A Thread about - perhaps the most dynamic character in the story, steeped in glory and larger than life, he’s Krishna’s darling.

He’s the one with the wheeled feet, the one who gives his love as easy as handing out gifts, the mediator between brothers at war.
Arjun’s arc as a charachter can perhaps be split in three.

▫️The period before his solo exile.
▫️His solo exile, The Rajasuya, the Dice Game and the second exile upto his quest to meet Shiva.
▫️The third from his quest to meet Shiva to the end of the Kurukshetra.

So this is going to be general thread for Karna's behavior and debunking myths which have spread regarding his birth, caste and characteristics. I'm going to mainly cite BORI version, KMG version and Gita Press version of Mahabharat here.
Myth 1: Karna was an untouchable and of lower caste.
Truth: Suta is an inter caste child born of kshatriya father and brahmin mother, Adhirath was friend of Dhritrastra and younger brother of King of Anga.

Pic 2: Adhirath was a friend of Dhritrastra
Myth 2: Karna was denied teaching by Drona.
Truth: This is a big, fat lie. Contradicted by pretty much every version out there, Drona indeed taught Karna.
