ISBN # : 9788129119599
Author : Jayashree Kumar and Katya Osborne

Edition : Paperback
Volumes : 1
Publisher : Rupa & Co.
Published : 2013

This is the third Instalment of Rupa's 12-Book Mahabharata Series.The earlier two parts being Adi Parva and Sabha Parva already being sold by Amazon. This third part narrates brilliantly the life of the Pandavas in exile in the forest and their ajnatavasa,living incognito,(and much more). 'Meteors rain down in torrents and a deep gloom falls everywhere,Birds fly about in alarm and great trees tremble.From the thunderous sound, the Kurus know that it is Arjuna's hands that drew the string of that best of bows.' The Mahabharata of Veda Vyasa is the longest recorded epic of the world..With almost 100,000 verses,it is many times as long as the Iliad and the Odyssey combined and has deeply influenced every aspect of the Indian ethos for some 4,000 years. The Mahabharata embodies the ancient and sacred Indian tradition,in all it's earthy and spiritual immensity. Many believe this most magnificent epic to be the greatest story ever told.Yet,the only full Indian translation of the Mahabharata into English is the nineteenth century one by Kisari Mohan Ganguil.More than a hundred years have passed since Ganguli accomplished his task,and the language he used is now,sadly archaic. The new twelve volume series retells the great epic line by line,in fresh,easily readable English prose.With it,the Publisher hopes to bring the Mahabharata alive again,for the contemporary and future reader.
