Arjun , because he is the hero of the Mahabharat. Though born into a great race , he does not rest on those laurels and inspite of that strives hard for more knowledge and skills. It is evident in his trips across the country . Also, his hesitation in killing his relatives speaks of a selflessness. Arjun is the role model for all young men aiming at perfection

Many people praise Karna, but although he was as good , if not better warrior then Arjun, but as a friend of Duryodhan , it was his duty to stop Durodhan from committing crimes. Instead, he turned a blind eye, and sometimes even motivated Duryodhan towards destruction/ Also, regarding his caste, Karna always wanted acceptance as a Kshatriya, and always called himself one . But when he went to learn from Parshuram, he lied and said that he is not a Kshatriya. What kind of duplicity is this ?

Between the two I admire Karna more. He had a greater heart than anyone else. He gave away his raksha kavach just because somebody wanted it knowing full well that without them he was vulnerable. Then even when he knew he was Kunti's son and she had abandoned him at birth.. he still had the utmost respect for her.

Always Karna...........because he was not liking the nasty politics of Krishna who wanted to divide the country into pieces .......... duryodhan who never wanted to divide into pieces of his own country to any one who are not from the royal blood ......... like all five pandavas are took birth from same womb but from different father ......... Karna was fighting for his right but could not get from his mother.......

Karna anytime because he genuinely learnt the skills...his talent, his determination and his loyalty are no match to any one...we all know how karna was cursed deceivingly...Dronacharya was so cunning that he never wanted any other than Arjuna to be most skilled in archery...but Karna learnt genuinely and stood as a strong opponent against Arjuna...He showed his loyalty to duryodhan because he was his master who gave him recognition, and respect...karna did his part and justified to his duties towards his ruler...also karna is very generous in charity and kind at heart...even today karna's name comes first when we talk about his qualities "Daana, veera, shoora"...my vote is always for karna...

Both as both had their strengths and weaknesses and were victims of their duty, loyalty and their place in life and where they were born.
