Why, even Vyasa, at times, seems partial against him? Why was Duryodhana’s downfall and death necessary for establishing Krishna-conceived Dharma-Raajya? Why couldn’t Krishna’s Dharma-Raajya include Duryodhana? Actually, Krishna red-carded Dhritarashtra-Duryodhana for the same reasons we all, at times (perhaps, too often), want to oust our Rulers. Duryodhana is our most familiar contemporary Ruler- the one who gives us Security by keeping us Insecure Within- the Ruler, with whom some of us are Content with in unique Self-Deception of being Content- the Ruler, who poses to speak for Woman but creates a patriarchal society- the Ruler whom we elect to power being duped by promises of a Static future of Contentment, and soon seek his downfall once the Myth starts waning.
