Jaya > Bharata > Mahabharat


We need to learn the Mahabharat so that we don't make the same mistakes as those in the history of our own nation and people.
If Indians actually took the lessons of Mahabharat to heart, we wouldn't have half the problems we have now. 
Sadly, we have "worshiped" the knowledge and the learning from our own history without "putting it into practice". 
As a result, we keep making the same mistakes as our ancestors.

If we actually woke up and learnt the lessons from our past, we could rise again as THE premier nation on Earth !
