Mahabharatha is an ancient epic of India purportedly collated and written down during the period 5th century BC to 4thcentury AD. It is perhaps the longest epic ever written with about 90000 verses that recount the role of good and evil, greed and goodness, godliness and being a human on this Earth.
Unfolding from the Mahabharatha are these enactments of the most dramatic events in the iconography of Hindu religion and practices and philosophy.
Here Lord Krishna with his dark cast skin holds aloft a chariot wheel which for all intent andpurposes appears glowing like his great"sudarshana chakra" a weapon of mass destruction aimed at the grand old man of warriors, Lord Bhishma, who has a serene sense of upliftment as he welcomes Lord Krishna to use it against him as it will surely be the best deliverance possible.
Arjuna the legendary warrior of the epic on whose side Krishna, the God is, and who appears to be waging a losing battle against BHishma, tries to hold back Krishna from using the WMD as it would annul the vow that no God could take up or use any weapons in the wars of the human beings.
