The Mahabharatha, a great Indian epic, is a compelling chronicle of warring families, clans and kingdoms. Samhita Arni’s re-telling – written when she was just twelve years old – is bold and unorthodox in its depiction of characters, and in the sharply critical tone it adopts towards the epic’s main theme: war. Illustrated with vivid and startling line drawings, the book offers an unusual yet accessible interpretation of a timeless narrative. Originally published as two separate volumes, the book is now available as a single combined edition.
