4. Bhagavad Gita-Mahabharata story background

The background of the Gita is set within the canvas of the immense Sanskrit poem which is the Mahabharata. This fourth video gives a summary of the story of two brothers of royal lineage, Pandu and Dhrtarastra and their sons.

Who is to succeed to Pandu after his death, the Pandavas with the elder of the five sons of Pandu, Yudhisthira, or the Kauravas with Duryodhana, the elder of the hundred sons of Dhrtarastra?
