  • Description
    This definitive and magnificent 10-volume unabridged translation is one of the rare English translations of full of the epic. Bibek Debroy makes the Mahabharata marvelously accessible to contemporary readers. Dispute over land and kingdom may lie at the heart of this story of war between cousins-the Pandavas and the Kouravas-but the Mahabharata is about conflicts 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. In this superb and widely acclaimed translation of the complete Mahabharata, Bibek Debroy takes on a great journey with incredible ease. This is the eighth volume in the series. It is the aftermath of the war. Ashvatthama kills all the remaining Pandavas-with the exception of the five Pandava brothers-and Panchalas. The funeral ceremonies for the dead warriors are performed. Bhishma's teachings in the Shanti Parva, after Yudhishthira is crowned, is about duties to be followed under different circumstances.

    Watch the masterstoyteller at work!

    It takes a master storyteller like Narayan to bring the Vyasa epic, running in 18 volumes down to this thin book. We might think we might only get a snapshot of it all, though surprisingly he manages to capture all the turning points, and above all the essence of Mahabharata - the perennial human struggle to stay align on the side of dharma and how even the wise falter sometimes, despite our best intentions and above all a right choice might not be the "right" choice always, we all do the bes...
