Dharma, the valid currency (TheHindu.com article)
The crux of the human predicament is about choosing how to act in various situations one confronts in life where the paths of dharma and adharma lie ahead. Dhritarashtra is afflicted by sleeplessness and Vidhura is called to offer advice that would set him at rest. Vidhura tells Dhritarashtra that to sleep well in the night, one has to strive during day. This is symbolic of the human situation where one’s present actions and behaviour is responsible for one’s future life, since the next janma is a certainty and not mere conjecture, pointed out Sri B. Sundarkumar in a discourse.
