Eldest son of #Dhritarashtra and #Gandhari.
Uru-Bhangam translates to “the Broken Thigh”. It is a play written by #Bhaasa and depicts Duryodhana# very differently that what we think of him today.
I tried to understand why Duryodhana# was always so opposed to Yudhishthira as the rightful heir. Who was the rightful heir? The Arthashastra says this about the rules of heirdom:
By this logic, Duryodhana# should have been the king. The exception is if the person under consideration is ill-trained. (Note: The word is specifically ill-trained, not rude, cruel or anything else). Duryodhana was very thoroughly trained and there are references about how he was a good king and was well-loved in the Mahabharata.
