INDIAN MYTHOLOGY

The Hindu and Buddhist Gods of India...

DHRITARASHTRA

Indian legendary mortal

Blind King and Father of the KAURAVAS.

He was blind due to the actions of Karma — in a past life he blinded a swan and killed its kids for a laugh and now Karma was getting its own back. And then some — he also lost his hundred children in the great KAURAVAS vs PANDAVAS war.

At least he couldn’t see it happen.
