It all began with petty family jealousy. The Kaurava brothers tricked their Pandava cousins out of a kingdom and even Lord Krishna could not stop the horror and bloodshed that followed. Veda Vyasa composed an epic poem, the longest in the world, to describe the events that unfolded. In this epic tale of superhuman heroes and gory action, Veda Vyasa explores human ambitions, relationships and conflicts to find the true purpose of life.

mahabharat

The story opens as Sauti, a storyteller returning from the snake sacrifice of King Janamejaya, approaches several wise men, or rishis, in the forest of Naimisha. He relates to them the Mahabharata as he has heard it from Vaisampayana, a disciple of the poet Vyasa. Sauti begins by recounting the death of King Parikshit of the Bharatas at the hands of Takshaka, a Naga, or snake-man. King Janamejaya, Parikshit's son and successor, had held the snake sacrifice in order to avenge the death of his father, but the ceremony was stopped by the intervention of the learned Naga, Astika. Sauti then recounts the origins of the Bharatas (also known as the Kurus), a race descended from the great King Bharata of Kurujangala.he Pandavas return to Hastinapura and Yudhishthira becomes heir to the throne of Kurujangala. Jealous and fearing the loss of his future throne, Duryodhana hatches a plot to destroy the five and acquire the kingdom for himself. While his cousins and Kunti are visiting the town of Varanavata, they are to stay in a special house constructed by one of Duryodhana's henchmen which he plans to have burned. Before the Pandavas leave, however, Vidura warns Yudhishthira of the planned trap. Bhima plans an escape route by digging a tunnel under the house through which they escape. Kunti and the five Pandavas are thought to have perished in the flames. They actually flee into the forest. While traveling in the wilderness, Bhima happens upon Hidimba, the beautiful sister of a Rakshasa, or forest-demon, Hidimba-asur. Bhima falls in love with her and kills her brother as the fiend is about to kill the Pandavas and Kunti. Hidimba bears Bhima a son, Ghatotkacha, "the pot-headed." The five brothers, disguised as Brahmins (religious men), and their mother continue to wander through the forest. Bhima slays another Rakshasa, Vaka, saving the people in the village of Ekachakra. Hearing of the upcoming svayamvara of King Drapada's daughter, Draupadi, the Pandavas set out for his kingdom. Arjuna, still in disguise, succeeds in the king's test of skill with a bow, and wins the beautiful Draupadi as his wife. Fulfilling a prophecy, Draupadi marries not just Arjun but all five of the brothers. Dhritarashtra hears that the Pandavas are alive and consults his advisors. Bhishma, Drona, and Vidura suggest that the kingdom be divided. Yudhishthira becomes king and the Pandavas construct the splendid city of Indraprastha. Yudhisthira's rule at Indraprastha is peaceful for more than a decade. Meanwhile Arjuna leaves his brother's kingdom for twelve years. He visits the wise and mighty Krishna in the city of Dwaraka. There he falls in love with Subhadra, Krishna's sister, and embarks on several adventures.

Mahabharata

Once more Amar Chitra Katha brings one of the ancient epics to life with beautiful illustrations.It's interesting to see a epic come into popularity as a comic.You would surely get bored if you read the epic as it is(text and text and only text) but reading it the way Amar Chitra Katha presents it is fantastic.You get to read about your deities the way you read about your favorite superheroes.At last its a book worth reading.

Mahabharata

Who of us does not know the story of Mahabharata? Well, there's nothing new in this book, the same story repeated again- There were 5 brothers called Pandavas and their 100 cousins called Kauravas. Pandavas want to share the kingdom whilw the Kauravas want to take the throne of Indraprastha all for themselves. Then... I think its enough. But, it can surely act as good book to those who haven't read Mahabharata. By the way, this book doesn't even tell the real story. I discovered it after reading another book on Mahabharata. But all these liking and disliking happened long ago, when I was really small. Overall, an average read.

The Battle of Truth

This book is very interesting due to its significance in our history.According to some legends it took place in Kurukshetra,Harayana,India.Lord krishna asked both the armies that whom they want to take: Lord Krishna or his Narayani Sena Which was a miraclein itself.The Pandavas chose Lord Krishna whereas Kauravas chose his Narayani Sena.The main cause of the war was Draupadi's insult in the Darbar.
