About the Book :

"I love mythoilogy," says twelve year old Samhita Arni "because the stories never end." Her version of the Mahabharatha is bold and unorthodox in its depiction of character and it the critical tone it adopts with the epic's main theme: war. Illustrated with charming and intricate line drawings, this best-selling book offers children and adults a fresh perspective on the timeless epic.

Part-I begins with the story of Santanu, and takes the reader up to the exile of the Pandavas. This volume (Part II) concludes the epic with the Great War.
