Winner of the Jnanpith and Sahitya Adademi awards, the story of Yayati is perhaps one of the most intriguing and fascinating episodes of Mahabharata.

Yayati was a great scholar and one of the noblest rulers of oldent times. He followed the Shastras and was devoted to the welfare of his subjects. Even the King of Gods, Indra, held him in high esteem. Married to seductively beautiful Devyani, in love with her maid Sharmishtha, and father of five sons from the two women, yet Yayati unasbashedly declares, "My lust for pleasure is unsatified..'

His quest for the carnal continued, sparing not even his youngest son, and exchanging his old age for his son's youth..
