    An epic that never loses its charm, Mahabharata: (Volume 2) is an unabridged English translation of the great Indian epic. The book is a part of a series of ten volumes brought out by Penguin Books.

    Summary Of The Book

    One of the most enthralling sagas ever narrated, the Mahabharata is more than just a Sanskrit mythology. The epic encompasses the cultural and social life of an entire nation, India. The epic has been widely translated into many languages, and has also been adapted into various other media. Mahabharata: (Volume 2) is the second book in the ten volume series that is a rare full length translation of the formidable 80,000 couplets or shlokas.

    The book is a translation of the last part of the Adi Parva, the entire Sabha Parva, and the initial part of the Vana Parva. The parts of the epic covered in this volume include Arjuna’s marriage to Subhadra and his sojourn in the forest, the conflagration of the Khandava forest, the crowning of Yudhishthira as emperor, construction of the assembly hall by the Pandavas and their conquest of the world, Duryodhana’s envy, the two dice-games, disrobing of Draupadi, and the story of Damyanti and Nala.

    The Mahabharata deals with all possible human emotions, and thus it still captivates the readers’ minds in a digital age flooded with literature. Mahabharata: (Volume 2) beautifully brings out the plot in a lucid, easy to read manner for contemporary readers. The many subplots with their artful digressions and twists retain their original thrill in the translation. The ten volume series translated by Bibek Debroy, in collaboration with Penguin Books, is based on the Critical Edition compiled at the Bhandarkar Research Institute.
