Woven around the fierce eighteen-day war between the Kauravas and the Pandavas, the Mahabharat is the ultimate Indian epic. Its numerous characters, intrigues and subplots make it a veritable encyclopaedia of Indian mythology, portraying a society in transition on all fronts. The narrative is replete with philosophical discourses and wisdom culled through centuries. No wonder it is said that all that there is in the world can be found in the Mahabharat and what is not in the Mahabharat exists nowhere. Noted Hindi poet Neelabh presents his version of the epic in a style and language suited to contemporary readers.
