The Mahabharata is an updated modern translation of the Sanskrit classic by Meera Uberoi. Summary of the Book The Mahabharata is not only one of the world's longest poems but it is also one of the oldest. It tells the story of the Kuru dynasty and how the Pandavas and Kauravas battled for the throne. It shows readers the bravery of Arjuna, the wisdom of Yudhishtra, the might of Bhima, the divinity of Krishna and the avarice of Duryodhana. It stands as an example of human virtue and fallacies, and gives readers a complete overview of Hindu Dharma from the words of Krishna himself towards the end. It shows the necessity of divine intervention when men fail to fulfill their righteous tasks and stray from the path of Dharma. This prose translation brings readers Ved Vyasa's classic in an easily accessible format. About Meera Uberoi Meera Uberoi is an Indian writer. She has also written: Lord Ganesha's Feast of Laughter.
