Where was the need to make mention of them and then labour arguments to
explain them away, there by disturbing men's minds?
It was not as though others haddiscovered the lapses and Vyasa and
Valmiki had to defend their heroes. The stories areartistic creations in which lapses they
impress the desired moral.
The parts dealing with the lapses deeply distress the reader's mind and
serve as solemn warnings of pitfalls, which wait to engulf the careless.
They dispose the mind to humility and watchfulness and make it realise
the need for divine guidance. The modem cinema also projects on the screen much that is
bad and immoral.
Whatever may be the explanation offered by the protagonists of the
cinema, evil is presented on the screen in an attractive fashion that grips people's minds
and tempts them into the path of wickedness.
