Mahabharata Vol. 2 Price: Rs. 494

The complete; unabridged Mahabharata The Mahabharata is one of the greatest stories ever told. Though the basic plot is widely known; there is much more to the epic than the dispute between Kouravas and Pandava that led to the battle in Kurukshetra. It has innumerable sub-plots that accommodate fascinating meanderings and digressions; and it has rarely been translated in full; given its formidable length of 80;000 shlokas or couplets. The magnificent 10-volume unabridged translation of the epic is based on the Critical Edition compiled at the Bhandakar Research Institue.Volume 2 consists of the last part of the Adi Parva; the complete Sabha Parva and the early part of the Vana Parva. The story covers Arjuna's stay in the forest; his marriage to Subhadra; the burning of the Khandava forest; the Pandavas building the assembly hall and conquering the world; Yudhishthira's crowning as emperor; Duryodhana's envy at the Pandavas' prosperity; the two games with the dice; Droupadi's disrobing; Arjuna's encounter with Shiva; and ends with the Nala and Damayanti story.Every conceivable human emotion figures in the Mahabharata; the reason why the epic continues to hold sway over our imagination. In this lucid; nuanced and confident translation; Bibek Debroy makes the Mahabharata marvellously accessible to contemporary readers.

Mythology at its best..!!!

I had always been fascinated by MAHABHARAT since that epic retelling by B.R.Chopra on DD 1. But the curiosity as to why such an epic existed was always on my mind. These books by bibek debroy are the pure essence of the real mahabharat with the intensity of taking you on a spiritual journey.

As a big time fan of Mahabharata, I wanted to read a "Complete Mahabharata". After long time I found this book and it is indeed a detail book on Mahabharata. I personally found it "awesome"... Language used in the novel is also pretty rich.
Those who have read novels like Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings might have felt that movies for the same are not up to the level of novels. You will feel same for Mahabharata Series after reading this book.

A must read for everyone who is curious as to why such an epic story was told and what real circumstances (in detail) were responsible for this epic saga of dharma, karma and arth.
