Why did my classmate get fulsome praise
For focusing his blinkered eyes
On a single target?
As princes we are expected to lead serried ranks,
To change strategies at any moment on any flank–
Should’nt we be aware of everything all around?
To evaluate all inputs of sight and sound?
Why reward Arjun with his vision confined
While I, crown-prince Duryodhan , am side-lined?
