In my opinion, good literature is timeless and placeless. It does not matter when it was written and created. On account of being timeless and placeless, I am trying to imply that the themes of the work and therefore the messages communicated by the story are what matter more, irrelevant of what time period or place the reader exists in. For me, good literature will captivate my interest and weird ways and permit me to perceive vividly the image the author is painting on behalf of me. One of the most important texts of Hinduism is the Bhagavad Gita. This is because it is basically a summary of various texts, put into a very simple way. The original texts are quite complex when it comes to language, and deals with specific topics. The Bhagavad Gita appears in the epic Mahabharata during a time in which Arjuna was confused about what approach to take when faced with a dilemma – Whether to attack his own kin in a battle, or relinquish and avoid conflict. Lord Krishna not only solves his dilemma, but also points out, through a lot of logical reasoning, the reasons behind his confusion, and gives him arguments and information to reassess his perspective about the situation. The Bhagavad Gita is not just a holy book that belongs to people that follow Hinduism. It is a scripture for the entire world and for all eras. It is irrelevant of people’s spirituality level and capacity. The universality of the Gita makes it unique among the other consecrated works present in the entire world. The war that is depicted in the Bhagavad Gita shows not only the tangible war that is being fought, but the war that is the clash of good and bad within one self and one’s ability to reason with one self. This text holds high value in the Hindu community hence this has been highly influential in my life and my family values. The dilemmas the text talks about it also very much relevant to our daily life and we often have to make decisions based on those references, therefore it is not too difficult to connect to the text because the scenarios can be found in our modern times too, hence it does not seem something out of this world and unrelatable.
