Week 9 Reading Diary B: The Pandavas Live

This is a Reading Diary that details my thoughts from pages 41-83 of The Mahabharata retold by R.K. Narayan.  

  • I guess Karna is not very karmic since he wants war!
  • So the Pandavas got the Gandiva bow as a reward for trapping animals and burning a forest?! WHAT?
  • Dhritarashtra built an entire assembly hall just to play a game of dice...
  • Um what happened at this game of dice.  Thank goodness for Krishna.  
  • The second game of dice results in an exile.  Rama's exile is 14 years while the Pandavas is 13.  
  • Surya gives them an endless supply of food while in exile!?!
  • So living with women is a blessing in disguise?
  • This has been a very interesting section.  So much has happened and there' a lot of potential for the storytelling assignment.
