  • Description
    The greatest Indian story ever told of a war between two factions of a family, The Mahabharata has continued to sway the imagination of its readers over the past centuries. While the dispute over land and kingdom between the warring cousins-the Pandavas and the Kauravas-forms the chief narrative, the primary concern of The Mahabharata is about the conflict of dharma. These conflicts are immense and various, singular and commonplace. Throughout the epic, characters face them with no clear indications of what is right and what is wrong; there are no absolute answers. Thus every possible human emotion features in The Mahabharata, the reason the epic continues to hold sway over our imagination. The complete and unabridged Sanskrit classic, now masterfully and accessibly rendered for contemporary readers by Bibek Debroy.

    Commendable Job Done by Mr. Debroy

    The packaging done by Flipkart was pathetic at the least. They wrapped the big corpus in thin plastic sheet and then they just put it in a big cartoon with NOTHING to prevent the corpus from rolling in any direction as a result of which my Box was torn. All books are intact though so I didn't return the product. They could have used those air pillows that we these days to put the thing firmly in place.
    .
    About the Corpus - Everything is coming out beautifully through as if we are reading it ...

    Brilliant

    I'm very impressed with the product as well as the delivery. The set contains 10 books of Mahabharat. The narrative is very beautifully translated with the essence of the main Sanskrit text. But the set box is torn in sides, it's breaking down which is not good. However all the books are in good condition. An esset of lifetime for every Mahabharata lover!

    Great product

    -5 star for the delivery agent.
    5 star for flipkart and it's services.
    No comment on the product itself as I don't think as of now I'm able enough to comment on this mammoth translation of the Sanskrit epic. Its translation of the unabridged version and very nuanced. Sir debroy do not miss out even on a single detail. The translation is actually word to word translation so that the meaning of the actual sanskrit text remains the same. You'll get it more clearly once you actually start readi...

    Great product

    I haven't actually read the books yet but I am confident it's pretty good as I bought it after much research. What I am amazed about is that I ordered the book on Sunday afternoon and the books arrived at noon the very next day. I was very apprehensive as there were reviews about the book having arrived damaged(as the package is very bulky) ..... But my books came well packed and in perfect condition. Thanks Flipkart for the speedy amazing service.....

    Very Good

    Excited to read!
    About the packaging: I got the set of books in a casing covered with plastic and without an extra cardboard box. (In the image I have put it in my own boxes)
    The case is a bit torn off at the ends but manageable to arrange the 10 volumes.
    The books are in good condition too.

    Perfect product!

    Really well written and translated. In case you wish to read the complete Mahabharata but you don't know Sanskrit, look no further. Complete with explanations, this set is the perfect choice for English novel readers who wish to experience the greatest story that is the Mahabharata.

    Terrific

    OMG. The Package came is an amazing condition. The covering box was also in a sturdy condition and was brought in without any damage. The books are really big, unlink other novels, each book might contain pages more than about 800 900 i suppose. A person might take upto 5 to 10 months to complete the full set. But there's no rush.

    Must buy!

    Perfect product and very nicely packed and delivered. Although books are 10 in number and are quite heavy, the box delivered to me was in good condition. It would need tape reinforcing if you want to keep for longer period though.

    Questions and Answers
    Q:Is the book divided into parva?
    A:It is direct translation of the MB Critical Edition (and NOT some collection of stories). So, by that, yes, it is one Parva after another. However, if you mean One Book=One Parva type, then NO.

    Q:If I order this book will it come in a torn state, as mentioned by all the buyers in the review?
    A:Yes. The box is too thin and lacks strength for holding the Book set. Even after handling with care, it got damaged. I had to put many tapes to keep it in shape.
