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.

Just got this book after a day it was ordered. Really fast service.
The book itself is simply awesome. Comes in a sturdy hardbound case and all the 3 volumes are also hardbound.
The book is richly illustrated and easy to read. A true Gem and a Must Buy!
Go for it!!!
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 page turner since centuries.
Truly said, "what is there in the Mahabharata is there in the world, and what is not is nowhere in the world..."
I bought this book for my son, as he had Mahabharata as his Hindi non-detail book. But as it was in Hindi, he found some pages difficult to understand. So, I bought him this book. He read it thoroughly and finished reading it in a week. After that, he has not opened it even when he's bored. Now, I find that I am the only one who reads it. So, if you are buying only to know the story and not to read it again and again like some readers do, I feel that you should not buy this book. Nevertheless, if you still insist on buying it, please know that it long but does not contain any unnecessary info that elongates the story for no reason. It's a good read, but not too good. It's just the Mahabharata. The delivery service needn't be mentioned, as like always, flipkart delivers the best!
Thank you flipkart for this quick response. I'm an extremely happy customer with you. Just like all the previous times, you delivered the books before i expected.
Regarding the book, I bought it for my little one.
I'm also cherishing my child hood memories reading the same.
Great book, very detailed, covers most of the subplots of Mahabharata. Be prepared to be surprised by the size of each of the volumes.
I love Flipkart. Prices are awesome and they deliver in Chennai the next day of the order. Their packaging is one of the best I've seen. All books I ordered were to be taken to the US and my son just loves the books.
