Description
From the Jacket

Mahabharata has been called the Pancham Veda. The epic describes the story of Aryavrata or India's entire history. It has been inspiring the life of the people of our country by the depiction of ideal male and female characters in it.

Although the number of people who know a little about the Mahabharata runs into millions, yet a lot about it remains unknown. To read, understand and absorb a voluminous epic like Mahabharata is tedious and time consuming. Mahabharata is like an ocean, the deeper you go the more you discover. It is an immeasurable treasure trove of knowledge.

There is well, researched information about nearly 200 characters. 'What was the name', 'Interesting information', 'How they got their names', 'An ocean of relationships', 'Boons and curses', 'Fate', 'Numbers' are some of the prominent chapters which make up the total of fourteen chapters making this book a virtual dictionary about the Mahabharata. This book is not only important for the common man but also for writers, scholars, editors, researchers, teachers and students.

About the Author Rajendra Pratap Singh is associated with literature and journalism. Hinduism is his specialised area of work. He has many stories, satires, articles to his credit besides Ramayan Quiz Book and Mahabharata Quiz Book.

It has been inspiring the life of the people of our county by the depiction of the ideal male and female characters in it. in it we find the description of hundreds of places, incidents and the depiction of the oddest twists and ironies of life.

Although the number of people who know a little about the Mahabharata runs into lakhs, yet a lot about it remains to be known. To read, understand and absorb a vast epic like Mahabharata is tedious and time consuming. Thus the need for a book, which in a short span of time can impart all the important and main information about it to us. From this viewpoint this book is an ocean in a small earthen vessel. Mahabharata is like an ocean, the deeper you go the more you uncover. It is an immeasurable treasure trove of knowledge. To gather all of it at one place is impossible. All the more when we are restricted to just a 1, 000 questions.

The aim of the present book is to impart to the reader the knowledge to be found in the Mahabharata. This book gives maximum information about the events and the characters of the Mahabharata to those interested. It imparts knowledge about all the interesting events and the strange happenings of the Mahabharata.

In the present book through the way of questions, on one side the deeds of powerful people like Bheeshma Pitamha, Acharya Dron, Karna, Arjun, Bheem, Abhimanyu, Ashwatthama and Ghatotkach have been described and on the other hand there are descriptions of the Rishis, Munis, Devarshis, Rajarshis, Maharshis etc. Besides these there is a lot of information about the various all this there are interesting descriptions of the rivers, mountains, cities and countries and kingdoms as they existed during the Mahabharata era. Besides these there is well researched information about nearly 200 characters, their mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, grandfathers, uncles etc. 'What was the name', 'Interesting information', 'How they got their names', 'An ocean of relationships', 'Boons and curses', 'Destiny', 'Numbers' are some of the prominent chapters which make up the total of fourteen chapters making this book a virtual dictionary about the Mahabharata. This book is not only important for the common man but is also important for the writers, scholars, editors, scribes, researchers, teachers and students.

At the end of the book three annexures have been attached Annexure-1 shows the family tree of the Kauravas and Pandavas. Annexure-2 gives a list of the hundred sons of Dhritrashtra. Annexure-3 gives the composition of one Akshauhinee Sena.

While preparing the present book the help given by my dear wife Usha Singh was invaluable.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
