He finally gave in to my years of Modi bhakti :) I could not vote as am out of India and could not get leave. Will always regret not voting in these historic elections.

There is nothing Chanakian about wagering your wife and watch her being molested publicly while she is in her menses and wearing a single garment.

Re: Discussion on Indian Epics, Texts, Treatises & Kathas

While the question of morality is raised, it is not put forward as the main argument. Droupadi herself repeatedly asks the audience to tell her whether she is a slave or not. Very disturbing. It appears that masters were well within their rights to do whatever with their slaves.
