Let’s think over :

Question 1. Explain the statement, ‘The present form of Mahabharat has preserved the development of many centuries in itself.’

Answer – Before the post-modern Mahabharata, we also find other forms of this epic. The basic plot of the war between Kauravas and Pandavas is in ‘Jai Granth’. There were only eight thousand eight hundred verses in its original. By adding part of the history of Bharat dynasty in Jai Granth, it became ‘Bharat Granth’ due to which the number of verses in it increased to twenty-four thousand. By adding many moral parts and narratives to Bharat Granth, it became ‘Mahabharata’. It contains approximately one lakh verses. In this way, the present form of Mahabharata preserves in itself the development of many centuries.

Question 2. Explain the social life of the Ramayan period.

Answer – The origin of the four varnas of the Ramayana period is believed to be from different parts of Brahma. There are many evidences of superiority of Brahmins but now the dominance of Kshatriyas has also increased. The basis of caste system is said to be karma instead of birth.

Question 3. Mention four features of economic life during Mahabharat’s time.

Answer- _

  1. Apart from agriculture, craft and commerce, there is no better means of earning money.
  2. Animal husbandry was the main occupation and there is mention of animal medicine in the Mahabharata.
  3. During that period, craft was also on the rise. The craftsmen were organized into different categories and had their own head.
  4. Taxes were imposed by the state keeping in mind the income and expenditure of foreign traders. Trade was done through both water and land routes and traders earned more profits.

Question 4. What are the main duties of a king, according to Mahabharat?

Answer : Despite being autocratic, the main duty of the king was to obey and protect the people. The king was expected to treat his subjects in the same way as a father treats his sons at home. It is written in Shanti Parva that the king should not oppress the weak because the misery of the weak destroys the king. The king who violated the Dharma has been condemned in harsh words.

Question 5. What was the pressure of public opinion on the state during the epic period?

Answer : The post of king was hereditary. But in the matter of succession, the power of public opinion is also mentioned many times. When King Prateek wanted to make his son Devapi the king, the public protested and stopped him. Ramayana and Mahabharata show that all sections of the society were invited at the time of coronation.
