I got home on time yesterday (three cheers..) and managed to catch Mahabharat on TV.
For some reason, I got wondering about Karna. Now, this man was intelligent, learned, strong willed and skilled - all the characteristics of a great epic hero. Right?
Wrong.. He didnt have that one characteristic that marks the truly great ones - the power to let go, to forgive and forget.
Only one flaw, and he lived a bitter life. And died a bitter death.
Moral of the post: Its up to you, the individual, to not let the past overshadow your present. Let your life be a clean slate and live in present. That'll make life easier, for better.
