Mahabharat's one character is wise Vidur, a solitary figure in the entire epic – well versed about all aspects of 'Dharm-Adharm' policies and strategies! Hence he is accorded a unique position in the Mahabharat whose at times queer but inspiring and humane approach grants him a distinct moral hero. His every utterance is a lesson in the State Craft. Even now wise Vidur of the Mahabharat era is quoted as an example to be followed in public life.
The cultural heritage revealed by this great epic is constituted by the behaviour of Yogiraj Krishna, Bheeshm, Drona, the Kaurvas and the Paandavas, Kunti, Draupadi and Gandhari, supported in the crests and troughs of the narrative by Karna, Drupad and scores of other characters whose activities make this epic a gem of knowledge.
