What is the good aim of maintaining silence in the epics, ignoring the inner scenarios?

[Smt. Sudha Rani asked: Pada Namaskaram Swami! Thank You Swami for elevating zero as valid number by adding Your kind Grace to my invalid life. Swami, All the Epics state that demons are killed by Contemporary Incarnations as they are rigid to reform, inspite of knowing the true path. How was King Dhritarastra is different from those demons and why was he exempted from Lord Krishna's mission of Dushta shikshana. Why the negative qualities of Karna, Drona, Bhishma, Kunthi, Yudhistir are hidden through silence, only focusing the light on basic plot of the story. Also we couldn't analyse the characters like Sitamma, Laxmana and Bharatha of Ramayana as well, in some sensitive instants. Without Sadguru's deep analysis, we could never undersatnd the inner characters of the most popular epic and thus can correct ourselves. What is the good aim of maintaining these epics with silence (Rahasyatmaka), ignoring the inner scenario? Thank You for enlightening me, Padanamaskaram Swami.]

Swami replied:- The underlying common principle is that a soul must undergo the good or bad or mixed fruit as per the composition of goodness and badness. If there is any error, sages will blame God and not you at all. God will never allow the blame of sages because He always does the most wonderful administration. Dhrutaraashtra was burnt in the fire of the forest. His sons were burnt after death and did not undergo the pain of burning. Everything is exactly calculated upto the last decimal point. Hence, you can have a nice sleep on this point without any trace of worry. You can concentrate on improving your devotion to God.
