The Mahabharata of Vyasa is a cornucopious treasure house of stories. These 11 books are a series of kathās from the mahā-epic, in the śloka-by-śloka English transcreation by P. Lal. Each volume carries a brief synopsis of the tale and information about its protagonists. Eight of the volumes have introductions by Dr Pradip Bhattacharya, two by Prema Nandakumar and one by A. Harindranath which discuss their symbolism, myth and metaphoric interpretation. Our Kathās explore, through Vyasa’s imagination and itihāsa-retelling, the riches of the ancient Indian tradition of Suta story-weaving. Story and history, tale and detail, vision and revision coalesce in this entertaining and illuminating journey through a civilisation that communicated lasting values and ideals by vivid oral means.
