Description

Over the years of its existence the Mahabharata has been playing a very important role not only in the lives of the people of India but also in the lives of the peoples of South East Asia. Whether we realize it or not, it reexamines a fact that we in India still stand under the spell of the Mahabharata. There is many a different strand that is woven in the thread of our civilization, reaching back into hoary antiquity.

The Mahabharata has not only influenced the literature, art, sculpture and painting of India but it has also molded the very character of the Indian people. Characters from the Great Epic, like Bhisma, Dhrtarastra, Karna, Yudhishtra, Bhima, Arjuna, Abhimanyu, Kunti, Gandhari, Draupadi, etc. are still household words and serve the purpose of driving home in a pithy manner the point that the speaker wants to convey.
