Ques. Did all this really happen?
Ans. I don’t know and it doesn’t matter to me. In fact, I believe it should not matter to anybody. What matters is the learning that one derives from the Epic. Would the lesson have more meaning if I could prove it with an original piece of Draupadi’s celestial sari?
