About the Edition

Mahabharata, one of the greatest epics in the history of civilization, from multiple vantages:
The inevitability of Kurukshetra war
Kunti’s death and Lakshagraha
The sacrifice of Bheema’s wife Hidimba
The perspective of foot soldiers and dasis
Krishna’s life experiences and their relation to his utterance of Geeta
Shalya, the uncle of Nakul and Sahadeva, siding with the Kauravas
The rage of Rudravatar Ashwatthama
and many others...

…This book is a tribute to Krishna Dwaipayana Vyasa, the original one. This is just an interpretation of what he had created. This is just a footnote in the rich history of our civilization which is full of stories that continue to cast magic upon us.
This is Mahabharata.
