CMP Bala Vihar® Grade 8A
Class 10 : Summary
RAW review: Eye for an Eye Or Forgive and let go: We discussed harboring revengeful thoughts, holding grudges vs letting go and moving on. Very insightful comments were shared by our students. We analyzed Drona and Drupada's tit-for-tat revenge drama.
Story: We narrated the story of Duryodhana's wax palace conspiracy to kill the Pandavas and their well planned escape. While Dhritarashtra secretly enables Duryodhana's plans, Vidura secretly helps the Pandavas.
Reflections: We analyzed the characters of Vidura, Dhritarashtra, Duryodhana, and the Pandavas. We talked about Duryodhana's jealousy and the extent he was going to to eliminate competition, how Dhritarashtra due to his attachment and greed enabled the wicked minded Duryodhana to carry out his plans, how the Pandavas were resilient and resourceful and smart in handling the curve ball thrown at them.
RAW: 'When life throws you a curve ball ... ': What do you do? What do you do in face of grave danger? How do you face an unexpected challenge?
Bhagavad Gita Chapter 12: We reviewed shlokas 1 to 4 and learnt to chant shloka 5.
