The Puffin Mahabharata || Namita Gokhale

‘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… That mighty battle between warring cousins of the Kuru clan has become a part of the mythology and history of India. 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.’

This is a retelling of a timeless tale in a clear, contemporary style. It brings the epic to life through brilliant illustrations, and is a treat to be cherished.
