The recent brutal killing of an Indian Engineer named K Suryanarayana in Kandahar, Afghanistan by the Taliban has outraged all Indians and the whole world.
Suryanarayan, 41, from Hyderabad was an employee of the Bahrain-based company. He was abducted from Zabul province, where he had been working on a telecom project.
When I heard this incident, some names immediately came to my mind like :-
Afganisthan of Mahabharata times = Afganishtan of Modern times,
Talibans = Duryodhana the eldest son of Kauravas,
modern Kandahar = Gandhar town of Gandhari, Duryodhana's mother,
from the name of the place Gandhar, the name Gandhari.
Yes some of you have understood what I want to say.
Duryodhana, the eldest son of Kauravas (who was defeated by the Pandavas in the great battle of Kurukshetra in the epic called Mahabharata) had no difference from the Talibans.
Duryodhana during his times was like the Talibans of today killing innocent people, having no respect for women, attrocities, reign of terror all over and terrorism.
Both Talibans and Duryodhana have similar qualities. "Harassing innocent people". Yes Duryodhana's mother Gandhari was from Kandahar(originally called Gandhar which sounds similar to Kandahar), which is now in Afganisthan. So more or less, Duryodhana has some ties with Kandahar and Afganisthan.
So it is clear that the way Duryodhana had bitter feelings for the Indians of that time, today's Talibans are no different as both belong to the same place. They feel worse for the Indians. So Indians take it easy and dont get surprised if Talibans try to cause harm to you as it is inherited by them from the times of Mahabharata starting from Duryodhana.
I wonder when the modern Pandavas will wipe out the modern Kauravas from causing harm to we Indians. But "history repeats itself" and we are confident that Pandavas will again come and wipe out these modern Kauravas, may be in the form of Indian Army.
