अ-महाभारत

‘अरे यार! क्या बात कर रहे हो? महाभारत असली है! Mythology नहीं History है भाई!’

अगर आप हिन्दुस्तान में रहते हैं तो इतना तो पक्का है कि आपने यह वाक्य, इससे मिलता जुलता कोई वाक्य या फिर इसी वाक्य का नम्र रूप आपने चलती ट्रेनों में, पान या चाय के ठेलों पे या नाई की दुकानों पे या किसी और ज्ञान बंटने वाली जगह पे ज़रूर सुना होगा | EQ के तराजू में ऊपर आने वाले भक्त इसे भावनाओं के आवेश में कहते हैं तो IQ की पूजा करने वाले इसे थोड़ी शक़ के नज़र के साथ बुदबुदा ज़रूर देते हैं | अगर आप भी इन बातों पे विशवास रखते हैं तो मुझे आपके दिल दुखाने के खेद के साथ यह कहना पड़ रहा है कि महाभारत का युद्ध, इतिहास नहीं एक कहानी या किंवदंती है | अगर आपका दिल अभी भी निराशा के बादलों में नहीं डूबा तो आपसे निवेदन है कि असल वाकया जानने के लिए, नीचे के अनुच्छेद की ओर प्रस्थान करें | 48 kata lagi
