  • The first one is Dhritarashtra. When lord Krishna came as a peace envoy to the court, she blinded everyone and granted the boon of eyesight to Dhritarashtra. Once having seen the Vishva-Virat Swarupa, Dhritarashtra declined the boon of eyesight as eyes that had once seen this should not be exposed to the miseries, treacheries, misfortune, sadness and evil in the world. By the way this comes from a thirteen year old girl.
