Introduction
Suspended in the middle of a battle Arjuna the leader warrior refuses to fight the epic battle between the Kauravas Pandavas comes to a standstill.

The Bhagavad Gita zooms in on many moments of truth with an imminent battle in the backdrop the fierce blowing of conch shells like lions roaring massive movement of soldiers neighing horses battle banners fluttering on both sides Arjuna the greatest warrior of his time is driven in a magnificent chariot by his friend mentor and divine guide Krishna Arjuna is leading the battle on behalf of the Pandavas who have lost their kingdom to their won kin the Kauravas In a wicked plot the kauravas have unjustly dethroned the Pandavas This is a battle for a just cause a battle of redemption Arjuna says to Krishna Let me have a book at my enemies before I fight them Krishna Drives the glittering chariot pulled by four white horses right into midfield between the two warring camps Arjuna ayes his enemies his former friend his great teachers and his revered uncle He is in deep sorrow He wonder before Krishna how he can kill his own people who are supposed to be loved and respected Wouldn’t battle lead to the destruction of society Wouldn’t that lead to the breakdown of established institutions of caste and tribe Wouldn’t this war lead to the disintegration of family and ancestral Virtues Arjuna slumps down in his chariot in anguished indecision His hands being to shake and he lays down his bow and arrow. In a dramatic turn of events Arjuna seems completely lost in despair He urges Krishna to show him the way.
