                         Bhagvad Gita is a simple but a most important part of epic Mahabharata for this country owned by God.

It contains the conversation between God and Man.

Without any doubt God has the final say.

Is He right?

The man is Arjuna the great warrior deprived of his kingdom.

God is none other than Krishna in human form, his charioteer.

Please visit the battlefield:

Two confronting armies.

Whole of the royal kingdoms of the Indian subcontinent and their armies have committed to one side or the other of this epic battle.

Arjuna and his Pandavas on one side; Kauravas , their cousins, who have wrongfully usurped the kingdom are on the other side.

Arjuna foresees what is going to happen. With genuine and sincere feelings at heart he is tormented by those profound doubts  about fighting maiming and killing people of his side , other side, his relatives and close friends - all human beings.

The cause , of course , is right. But is that enough?

Will that justify enormity of death and destruction?

Should I take personal responsibility for this mass killing and massive destruction?

What mistake these thousands of people have committed who are going to be killed except being loyal to one group or the other?

Krishna brushes aside all these consequences.

He in fact takes an extreme position by urging Arjuna to obey him and fight the violent war IRRESPECTIVE OF CONSEQUENCES>

Krishna ignores significance of human conscience, and value of human lives.He also disowns  a person"s personal responsibilities for the consequences of his action. For Krishna basic human emphathies have no role.

Krishna disowns consequence of action.

Mahabharatha is ultimately a tragedy: We witness weeping, lamentations and cries, grief and destruction accompanying victory and the end establishes that God is wrong and Man is right.
