The Mahabharata of Vyasa is a cornucopious treasure house of stories. The 11 books in this series are kathās from the mahā-epic, in the śloka-by-śloka English transcreation by P. Lal.
Our Kathās explore, through Vyasa’s imagination and itihāsa-retelling, the riches of the ancient Indian tradition of Suta story-weaving. Story and history, tale and detail, vision and revision coalesce in this entertaining and illuminating journey through a civilisation that communicated lasting values and ideals by vivid oral means.
