About the Book

How much can one lose in a game of dice? If the stakes are high enough a game can cost a king his kingdom and a dynasty its heirs. Mahabharata Part 1: The Game begins with the birth of Bhishma, the grand patriarch of the Kuru clan, and follows the destinies of the Pandavs and Kauravs, until it becomes clear that war between them is inevitable.

The Pandavs and Kauravs are pulled into the vortex of a war that divides a family, and pits ever nation against the other. Mahabharata Part 2: The War begins with the Pandavs’ council of war and traces the bloody conflict with its stories of bravery, loyalty and deceit, right up to the final battle. But can there trulu be a victor in a war where everuthinq is lost?

About the Author

Soma Guha (1962-2006) was born and educated in Kolkata. After graduating from Jadavpur University, she worked as a journalist for almost fifteen years, initially with The Telegraph in Kolkata and then with The Pioneer in New Delhi. She was a prolific feature writer, who also wrote on films, television and the arts. She left behind unfinished, what had for long been her labour of love, a fictional narrative centred on the life of the Mughal prince Doro Shukoh.

Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
