The Mahabharata attributes high moral standards to Gandhari, although her sons are portrayed as villains. She repeatedly exhorted her sons to follow dharma and make peace with the Pandavas. Gandhari fostered a big-little sister relationship with Kunti. Famously, when Duryodhana would ask for her blessing of victory during the Kurukshetra war, Gandhari would only say “may victory find the side of righteousness”. Gandhari’s major flaw was her love for her sons, especially her first born, Duryodhana, which often blinded her to his flaws.
