"Sach keh rahe ho. Parantu mai to yuddh ki baat hi nahi kar raha. Mai to shaanti ki baat kar raha hun".
This means that Krishna agrees that once the war is decided, after that, correct course of action or rule to win is to hit first (Ram also had first shot on Ravan after his rejection of peace proposal). But before that, war must have become inevitable. Attack is also known to be best form of defense and early advance marching forces enemy to go backward very early. YUDDHNITI bhi yahi kehti hai ki maar pehele karni chaahiye. But that yuddhniti is applicable when there is YUDDH; and yuddh is only there once it is started; and one should start the war only after all the doors of peace are closed and the war is absolutely justified. Amazing logic!!!!! Great balance of Sthitpragnya Yogeshwar is demonstrated in this dialog.
Krishna was the last person who wanted war and yet he was the main force behind making Arjun fight and win once the war had already started. Right thing at the right time. Great switching of behaviour before and after the start of the war. This ability of objective and wise thinking and ability to completely change the approach to opposite spectrum of behaviour according to the situation is one of the most wonderful and blissful leela of Lord's incarnation teaching us how one should have balanced & objective thinking.Edited by ShivangBuch - 2010-04-11T00:44:12Z
