Kunti is preparing herself to bring up her past when Bell begins to toll intruding into their privacy, pandu realizes somebody has sent them a message and rushes to the court * extremely efficient telegram system* The Kuru house gather in the court, Rajmaata refuses to send Pandu citing his newly wed status , Bhishm volunteers to go in Pandu’s stead but before anything can come out of it, Dhrithrashtr cuts in says that as king it is important that the king should head the army himself rather than sending a proxy for the king is being tested , he sarcastically states that he wll volunteer to go ..he might be blind but he does know how to fight . Pandu agrees with Dhrithrashtr , says that the enemy kings are flexing their arms , wanting to test Pandu’s might..and it is appropriate that HE should lead the army himself ..Rajmata brings up the Kunti card and tries to weaken Pandu’s resolve but is stalled.

A father does not want his son to suffer, he would like to see his son traversing the same path that he himself had travelled, a laudable thinking but questions .. will the path be the same as before , Is it right in trying to bring up ur son in ur own shadow , what if his talents lie in some other direction , Should one not explore new path , new quests, new adventures , allow them a sense of achievement .. allow them the freedom to make their own choice, to travel their own road..
