    Description

    The Mahabharata is some 3,500 years old and is the longest poem in existence. It is one of the founding epics of Indian culture, yet is also a highly dramatic and enthralling story. It centres around a royal family who are at war with each other, and is filled with heroism, bloodshed, satanic hates and intrigue, gods, heavenly cities and vivid, super-human characters. Its often violent narrative also encompasses philosophy, history and cosmology, and contains the Bhagavad Gita, the masterly spiritual discussion between Krishna and the prince Arjuna which forms the cornerstone of the Hindu religion. R. K. Narayan's brilliant shortened prose interpretation of this monumental, cosmic drama is one of his finest achievements, and brings all the excitement and depth of this great Indian epic to life.

    R.K. Narayan's 'Maha' Mahabharata

    R.K. Narayan, a renowned Indian novelist famous mostly for fictional work, has proved to the world that he could also retell the great Indian epics in simple English. What's more, he has abridged the Mahabharata, the longest poem of over one lakh verses, into a compact book of just 179 pages. In this fast world where people do not find time to read, books like the Mahabharatha by R.K. Narayan are welcome by the readers. I highly recommend this book for its simplicity and readability.
