Mahabharata (Set of 3 Volumes) (English) (Hardcover) Price: Rs. 1,499

Mahabharata (Set Of 3 Volumes), published by Amar Chitra Katha, is a comic book version of the famous Indian epic of the Mahabharata. It consists of three volumes, spanning a total of 1200-odd pages.

The Mahabharata is considered to be the longest epic poem in the world. The creation of this ageless epic is traditionally attributed to the seer Vyasa. His disciple Vaishampayana narrated it in public for the first time. King Janamejaya and numerous learned sages were present at the recital. They had gathered for a 12-year-long sacred ritual called Yajna.

The first volume is titled The Kuru Princes of Hastinapura. Beginning with Shantanu, King Janamejaya’s ancestor and the ruler of Hastinapura, this volume narrates the various events that led to the establishment of the Kuru dynasty. It leads the story to the reign of Dhritarashtra over Hastinapura while his brother Pandu has retired to the forest with his two wives Kunti and Madri and five sons (The Pandavas).

Upon the death of Pandu and Madri, Kunti and the Pandavas return to Hastinapura. The return of the Pandavas, and being armed with numerous skills, make the Kauravas (the 100 sons of Dhritarashtra) jealous of them. The eldest Kaurava brother, Duryodhana, plots to send the Pandavas into exile. Forewarned about his intentions, the Pandavas manage to foil his plan and escape from the trap set for them.

Then they spend a year in disguise, and during this time, Arjuna wins the hand of Draupadi in marriage. Without knowing what Arjuna has won in  the archery match, Kunti unwittingly asks the Pandavas to share the prize. Thus, Draupadi ends up being married to all of the Pandava brothers. After their wedding, the Pandavas are invited back to Hastinapura to resume peaceful relations.

The second volume, The Pandavas In Exile, covers events like the Rajasooya Yajna performed by the eldest Pandava Yudhisthira, and Bheema’s slaying of the notorious Jarasandha. Eventually, the Pandavas and Kauravas play a game of dice in which the Pandavas are defeated. They are forced into 13 years of exile, of which, they must spend the last year in disguise. When they return from the stipulated exile period to reclaim their share of the kingdom, their claim is denied by Duryodhana, laying the foundation for the subsequent Kurukshetra war.

The third volume, titled On The Battlefield Of Kurukshetra, begins with the efforts of Krishna to establish a peaceful settlement between the hostile brothers. However, his attempts prove futile, and thus begins the 18-day-long Kurukshetra war.

Mahabharata (Set Of 3 Volumes) was published in 2010 by Amar Chitra Katha Pvt. Ltd.

I purchased this for my 8 years old son. He loved the quality, illustration and the presentation of the entire product. Very good collectable item. Delivery was delayed due to some issue from the courier service. But Flipkart notified me on time.

Everything!

A must read book to live the life in present world. Each and Every characters of the Great Epic teaches you the valuable lessons of life. From King Chedi to the last kings Parikshit and Janmejay, everyone teaches by their own stories what not to do in so called "kaliyug" to survive. The greatly said Bhagawadgeeta is the total extraction of philosophy of every present religions. Our modern generation can follow Lord Krishna as the BEST IDEAL and MENTOR in the world.
Even if you read it as a story, you'll find thrills, suspense, philosophy, war, politics... everything page by page. A real pa…

Beautiful !

A great collection with good hard-binding (with a fairly sturdy cardboard case to house all three volumes), clear print, and reasonably good paper quality (nearly 80 GSM, i guess).

Having already collected the original single volumes (42 in total) over a few years back in the 80s and 90s, i felt it would be nice to have a hard-bound version too. In comparison, although the content is the same, the nostalgia of seeing slightly yellow/brown/sepia coloured paper is lost in the newer version (though the quality of paper is surely better).

Further, each separate volume of the ol…

Its an asset!

Well, firstly i was happy when i received this three volume book well packed without much damage. I strongly believe that this package is truly an asset for person who loves ancient epics.
Coming to the feature of the book, it looks perfect from outside as it is well bind. The box which holds all three books is also amazing.
Well when talking about the contents, its inevitable to say that its marvelous. The quality pages help us know the story with just a loom on it. Amar chitra Katha"s perfect chitras (pictures) is the main feature.
In addition all three book contains a book mar…

Great potential, but wasted by the script

I'm basing my comparison on Uncle Pai's Amar Chitra Katha on Ramayana. Loved that one.

The Mahabharata being the ultimate Indian epic could have been a phenomenal rendition as a comic book. Unfortunately this series does not live up to one's expectations. The script is mundane. The first volume is nice - I could even say it's good. The second volume is rubbish.
You have force yourself to read through it - the way some kids need to be coaxed through the greens on their plate.
If you survive that, the 3rd volume is passable.

Overall you do learn some interesting nugge…

Great books, but.

What you get for the money you pay for this series of books is a collection of all the Mahabharata issues made by Amar Chitra Katha. The books themselves are of good quality considering the pricing.

However, whats disappointing here is the script. There are a lot of inaccuracies here like how Dushyant only pretended not to recognise Shakuntala, completely skipping the part about how Shakuntala got cursed by Durvasa, causing Dushyant to actually forget about her and so many other inaccuracies like how it says that Krishna got the Sudarshan chakra from Mayasur instead of Parasuram as pe…

Teach something good to children

Got this in deal of the day from flipkart. The main reason for me buying this is because we can teach something good to the children instead of keeping them addicted to the nonsense coming in the television channels, and also this will develop a habit of reading. Since this is having all the pictures, this keeps my son interested. Overall, a wonderful set of books, 1000 pages, and wonderfully presented. Must have for the families having kids.

A true marvel and a must read for the younger generation for it's simplicity and the content is too good and will unravel many unknown facts as on date about this great epic.

A must have book for today's children for them to learn about the classical epic.
