You will fell that you are gaining information through them rather than entertaining. Karna still had some of the greatest qualities despite the tragedies and curses he had which none of the pandavas had. Why did he not let Arjun and Karna fight fair? Every human will suffer in his life coz there is no good nor bad. A perfect masculine, duty-bound, caring character. In many ways he was also a big king’s sidekick. Maybe he actually was in reality, but as far as society was concerned, he wanted to be somebody he was not. The Mahabharata mentions that after his death in the Kurukshetra war, Karna’s soul ascended to Suryalok (the abode of his father, Sun god), and along with his sons and “attained” the “state” of a god. ACCORDING to M.K ganguly, gita press, arjun is far more superior. Similarly what seems impossible now (or are called "myths"), would certainly have been possible several thousand years ago.

Karna became famous as the rival of Arjuna, the great hero of Hindu mythology. There seemed to be no place for forgiveness and ahimsa.

Karna - A Good Mango Gone Bad - In India, for people who are conversant with the Mahabharata, there is a whole culture where Karna is a kind of anti-hero. He is a sweet mango gone bad. Had he been strong, he could have resisted and said let's have a fair game and it's okay if Karna wins! He is depicted as a tragic hero; gifted, righteous and brave, whose warrior skills won the admiration of Bhishma and Krishna. If existence was not like this, there would be no value for doing the right things or for human intelligence. But these instances show that neither pandavas nor karna did the right thing. Use it if it's there but before using it one must be righteously clear that such hate is not self-nurtured. Karn is one of my favourite characters, always.
