    1. Gandhari, the wife of Dhritarashtra is a very interesting character from Mahabharat. Married to a blind man, she thought she should not enjoy any luxuries of life that are denied to the husband, and blinded herself with a cloth.

      What she must have gone through as a young girl about to be married to a blind prince is less known in the Mahabharata. What is well known is that when the marriage was to be solemnized, Gandhari decided that she should in no way be superior to her husband , and bound her eyes with a silk scarf.

      She had decided that if her husband could not see, she too would not see. She was hailed as a sati for her sacrifice and very little is known about Dhritrashtra’s deeper feelings regarding his wife’s decision .Only in their last journey when Dhritrashtra and Gandhari were living in Sanyasa in the forest along with Kunti and Vidura did he bare his heart on this matter.
