vengeance

Look Draupadi, your hair has been died with the blood of Gandhari’s children. But in getting that blood, so much rage was generated that it cost you the lives of your five sons. Was it worth it? Could you have forgiven? Or was vengeance the only recourse? Is vengeance ever the answer? He who strikes another always believes he is right in doing so - they are heroes, they are martyrs. But ask the one struck down - they will call the hero a villain, they will call the martyr, a terrorist. Gandhari weeps for her children - her heroes, your villains. You weeps for your children - your heroes, her villains. When will this stop? Will humans discover the power to share and forgive, strike the root cause of violence?
