KURUKSHETRA
The land of  Dharma

HOARY PAST

The rulers that reigned after him, and from time to time imbibed that spirit and raised the reputation of the land to the jealousy of the celestials. Illustrious mahaviras, avatara purushas, divya tapasvis, tatva pracharakas, peethadhipatis, sastrakaras etc., of interplanetary eminence strove to keep aloft its banner of Dharma ever fluttering, and particularly never flagging, even during the alien conquests, threatening the very existence of the people. During the Mahabharata period, the descendants of king Kuru - Kauravas and Pandavas raised its reputation to the pinnacle, by making the celestials share their joys and woes. Wonder of wonders! Neither the bigotry of the alien rulers, nor the dictatorial high handedness of some of the Indian rulers holding diametrically opposite views, suppressed the irrepressible spirit of that matchless Mahapurusha king Kuru.
