While visiting Chandigarh the other day to attend a conference, I had to pass through Kurukshetra in the State of Haryana (India). The very scenario of Mahabharat war flashed before my eyes like a lightning and for a few seconds it looked like I am personally witnessing the war going on, and Lord Krishna giving Geeta precepts to the great warrior, Arjun. Why Kurukshetra was chosen to be the site for war between Kauravas and Pandavas is a story in itself. After it became inevitable that a war has to take place between both the sides, it was decided that the site should be the one where there is nothing like emotions or sentiments in the matter of killing one another as it was after all a war between close blood relations, and there was every possibility of kinship and compassion emerging on the surface disabling the fighters to fight undeterred. A common team consisting of representatives from both the sides was formed to find out such a location where no compassion but a sheer cruelty worked as a way of life. The team reached Kurukshetra, a place then known for the cruel most behaviour on the part of the locals. There they saw that some dispute was going on in a family consisting of a man, his wife, and their son. Within minutes, they went violent with father brutally killing his son on the spot feeling quite relaxed as if nothing had happened. The team finalised their decision in favour of Kurukshetra to be the ideal place for Mahabharat war. Rest is the story forming the great epic Mahabharat and Shrimadbhagwat, of which Geeta is the most salient a narrative known all over the world.
