The Mahabharata is one of the greatest epics ever told.

The basic plot is widely known- it is the story of two sets of paternal first cousins who become rivals and oppose each other in war for possession of the ancestral kingdom Bharata.

However, there is much more to the story than the dispute between the Kauravas and the Pandavas that led to the battle in Kurukshetra.

Debroy’s book “The Mahabharata: Draupadi’s Marriage and Other Selections” consists of 3 parts taken from the entire Mahabharata.

The first two parts are related to Draupadi’s marriage to the Pandavas and the third one tells the love story between Nala and Damayandi.

If you like richness in your books, from tradition to culture to characters, this is a brilliantly translated book.
