The Pandavas in Hiding
The Pandavas in Hiding
Description
When the Kuru elders granted the arid territory of Khandavaprastha to the Pandavas, little did their hostile cousins, the Kauravas, suspect that the Pandavas would soon turn it into a flourishing kingdom.

Indraprastha as the kingdom was called, was the envy of the Kauravas. They were bent on making it theirs - by fair means or foul. Since the Pandavas were too strong for them, they had to resort to the latter.

They invited the Pandavas to a game of dice. The Pandavas lost since the Kauravas resorted to cheating. They had to go into exile for thirteen years -twelve years to be spent in the forest and the thirteenth year incognito. The thirteenth year was the most crucial one for if they were able to remain in hiding that whole year, they would be restored to their kingdom; but if they were discovered they would have to go into exile again for another thirteen years.

This Amar Chitra Katha, based on the Virata Parva of the Mahabharata, is the story of how in the thirteenth year, Duryodhana, the Kaurava tried to make the Pandavas betray themselves and what followed as a result.

Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
