It would be interesting to contrast the three brothers -
Someshwara, Vikramaditya and Jayasimha, and to study how they behaved when they got power.
Someshwara forgot that Vikramaditya could easily have become the Yuvaraja; he had refused,
and had requested his father to make Someshwara the Yuvaraja. Someshwara was suspicious of
Vikramaditya. As a result, he brought trouble upon himself. Jayasimha, too, had become
foolish and over-ambitious once he got power. Vikramaditya remained sane and merciful even
when he had power, and had been victorious.
Power is the test of a man's goodness and wisdom, is it not?
