The first verse of Bhagwad Gita starts with Dhritarashtra and his me and mine, basically it represents our state of mind in which we are blind to our reality ‘who we really are’ and recognise ourself with this little body – mind – intellect complex that is separate from this world and not knowing our perfect nature we find ourselves imperfect subject to disease, old age and so forth and we want completion by the experience of things. Thats why we find ourselves as experiencer because of our sense organs. And that experience of worldly things gives us joy and suffering. From not knowing ourselves in our perfect nature a sense of incompleteness comes to us and to fulfil that void desire is born I want this and I don’t want that and from this desire action is born we work desperately to get what we want and to avoid what we don’t want. And from action result of action is born (karmafala) and from result of action come life and death. And next few verses dedicated to Duryodhana, if Dhritarashtra represents our ignorance then Duryodhana represents result of it that due to ignorance desire is born and from desire come action, action gives result of action and form that comes our life and death. Basically Duryodhana represents our unfulfilled state due to our recognition with our imperfect form and this incompleteness give rise to thief in us that we want to take something that doesn’t belong to us and make it mine. Wealth is something that is given by lord to all of us but some people hold it too much that’s why it will be insufficient for other’s. The Duryodhana in us want it so badly that it is even ready to go any extent to get it and make his own for the sake of his own personal happiness. That’s why he always remain anxious. That incompleteness keeps us unhappy and creates a thief in us. That what Duryodhana feel all his life, incomplete, unhappy, anxious, fearful and insecure. That’s why to fill that void he wants all that kingdom for himself.
In privious verses Duryodhana shows his feeling of fear and insecurity he is looking at enemy strength and showing his lack of trust on Drona. Then he realizes that he has gone overboard, when somebody is in that state he wants to cover both basis on side he feels very insecure and other side he feels very powerful that I can do it I have all the shwerdness, smartness and strength to do it. So first we look at his insecurity, and weakness that other side is powerful and now he is looking at no no I can do it. Verse seven onwards he look at his strength.
In this verse he is addressing to Drona, he is saying (dvijottama). Dvij (Brahman) brahamans are consider twice born first physical birth of this body and second birth in this knowledge of who you are. His first birth is of a limited being and second birth is of a wise person therefore they are called dvij. Duryodhana is not only calling him dvij but he is calling him dvijottama means best among Brahmins. This would be the best complement under normal circumstances but under these circumstances it is not because society know at that time Brahmins are soft hearted they are not war mongerers they are not fighting type. Dvij is not a positive complement when you are in war. Because soft heartedness is not a good quality in war. Actually it is Duryodhana fear that Drona may go soft towards his sisyas in battle. Therefore, now he is describing who are the great people on his side.
