The Mahabharata 1

4.17, 6 Ratings 0 Reviews

The Mahabharata is one of the greatest stories ever told. Dispute over land and kingdom may lie at the heart of this story of war between cousins - the kouravas and Pandavas - but the Mahabharata is about conflicts of dharma. These conflicts are immense and various, singular and commonplace. Throughout the epic, characters face them with no clear indications of what is right and what is wrong, there are no absolute answers. Thus every possible human emotion features in the Mahabharata,the reason the epic continues to hold sway over our imagination. In this superb and widely acclaimed translation of the complete Mahabharata.BIbek Debroy takes us on a great journey with incredible ease.
