The Mahabharata of Veda Vyasa is the longest epic of the world.With almost 100,000 verses,it is many times as long as the Illiad and the Odessey combined and has deeply influenced every aspect of the Indian ethos for some 4,000 years. The main theme is the Great War on Kurukshetra,but the epic teems with smaller stories,and other stories within these,all woven together with a genius that confounds comparision.At it's heart,it contains Krishna's immortal Bhagavad-Gita,the song of God. The Mahabharata embodies the ancient and sacred Indian tradition,in all it's earthy and spiritual immensity.Famously,"What is found here may be found elsewhere.What is not found here will not be found elsewhere." Many believe this most magnificient epic to be the greatest story ever told.Yet,the only full Indian translation of the Mahabharata into English is the 19th century one by Kisari Mohan Ganguli.More than a hundred years have passed since Ganguli accomplished his task,and the language he used is now sadly archaic. Thsi new 12 volume series retells the great epic,line by line,in fresh,easily readable English prose.With it,we hope to bring the Mahabharata alive again,for the contemporary and future reader. The first Volume is known as ADI PARVA. Author Bio: Ramesh Menon,the Author,has also written modern renderings of the Mahabharata,Ramayana,Srimad Bhagavadgita,Siva Puranan,Devi Puranan and Bhagavata Purana. The books are listed on amazon.
