About the Book
The Mahabharata is truly one of the greatest
stories ever told. Namita Gokhales rendition makes for compelling reading,
because it retains t he essential structure of the narrative without diluting
its epic proportions. This book is the best gift for children who wish to
discover and enjoy the wisdom and mythology of ancient India
A long, long time ago, in the ancient lands of
India, known in those days as Bharatvarsha, a family quarrel grew into a bloody
war. There had been wars before, and there have been wars since, but that
mighty battle between warring cousins of the Kuru clan has become a part of the
mythology and history of India. Told and retold a million times, the story of
the Mahabharata is about defeat as much as victory, about humility as much as
courage. It is the greatest story ever told.
Like a modern-day suta or storyteller, Namita
Gokhale brings alive Indias richest literary treasure with disarming ease and
simplicity She retells this timeless tale of mortals and immortals and stories
within stories, of valour, deceit, glory and despair, for todays young reader
in a clear, contemporary style.
A brilliant series of evocative and thoughtful
illustrations by painter and animator Suddhasattwa Basu brings the epic to life
in a vibrant visual feast.
Matchless in its content and presentation, The Puffin
Mahabharata is a book that will be cherished by readers of all ages.
