How does Dritarashtra expect that according to dharma Kshetra Pandavas must feel the urge to give their part of the land to the Kauravas when Dritarashtra knows that the dharma of a soldier is to fight the war and not to run away from the war.

This is just my two cents, but as Swamiji mentioned people who are "good" and Dritarashtra knows that the Pandavas are "good" they often may have confusion on what is the right path. (versus someone who is bad/evil is one track and they want one thing, for example power, fame etc) and therefore there is a slight confusion and the Pandavas may give up the war due to them being "good" and confused if war is evil. Secondly, it is probably also Dritarashtra's own moha (delusion) which he seems to have a lot of, to think Pandavas will give up the war but not his own delusion to think his righteous "sons" the Kauravas, I feel most people even nowadays will always blame the other's kids but never their own.

Hari On Srinivasanji, and Manishaji,
According to Ved-ji's talk (questionnaire 1of chapter 2), Sanjaya talked to Pandavas before the Mahabharata war. Bhagavan Sree Krishna told Arjuna that it was Dhritarashtra's thoughts that was coming out through Sanjaya. Similar doubts came out through Arjuna when the war just broke out. So Dhritarashtra who was partial about his 'mamakas,' intentionally wanted to plant the seed of confusion about Dharma in Pandavas' mind. But since they were in the Dharma kshetra, he was having doubt whether this will work out and all the more, within his mind he knew that Sree Krishna is on the side of Pandavas and the final victory will be for sure for the Pandavas.
Please correct if my understanding is not right.
Prem & pranams,
Vanaja

Dhristarashtra is selfish and wants his son to get the land, so his application of dharma is not impartial - It also implies he identifies with body, so feels the pull of relations just like Arjuna did until Lord Krishna got him out of it.

Hari Om
This is a further question. Is it fair to say that Duryodhan was essentially evil? He must have done something good in his life! He was given a human life after all . I read some where that his name actually was Suyodhan ; any truth to this?

Also , if Arjuna gets the credit for Srimad Bhagavad Gita being available for us, maybe Duryodhan deserves some credit as well. Why? If no war, then no Gita!

Thanks and Best Wishes
Yash

Br. Vedji says in one of the Q&A - it is best to stay focused on Sri Krishna when reading Mahabharata. Gita Dhyana slokas are also recited to glorify Sri Krishna for the knowledge given in Gita.
Glorifying anyone else can sometimes even make Sri Krishna appear as the villian!
These points are clarified in Br. Vedji's talk around 22:45 in the following link ---- Basically, his point is kauravas are bad and pandavas are not so bad. In such a battle, one who choses God wins.

Hari Om Mahavir ji
Thank you so much for summarising Br Vedji’s point as well as for the link. I found the Q&A 2 session very useful as well as inspiring. It appears that just listening to these sessions once is not enough for me. I hope to watch future sessions more than once. I really appreciate your guidance in this matter.
Kind Regards, Best Wishes.

I got the answer to my question. it is because Dritharashtra was partial towards his sons that he wanted the Pandavas to give their land also to Duryodhana. The partiality towards his sons had forced him to think this way.

Thanks and Regards,
Srinivasan
