Originally published in the year 1951,the huge popularity of the book ,has resulted in the book being re-printed several times.Centuries ago, it was proclaimed of the Mahabharata: "What is not in it, is nowhere." But even now, we can use the same words about it. He who knows it not, knows not the heights and depths of the soul; he misses the trials and tragedy and the beauty and grandeur of life. More details: The Mahabharata is not a mere epic; it is a romance, telling the tale of heroic men and women, and of some who were divine; it is a whole literature in itself, containing a code of life,

The Mahabharata is the longest, and arguably one of the greatest epic poems in any language. A treatise on life itself, it embraces religion and ethics, polity and government, philosophy and the pursuit of salvation. With its central theme of universal destruction and the evils of war, the epic poem reveals not the exploits of heroes but the lives of ordinary people in search of the most fundamental of human desires: peace and reconciliation.

Few works in world literature have inspired so vast an audience, in nations with radically different languages and cultures, as the Ramayana and Mahabharata, two Sanskrit verse epics written some 2,000 years ago. In Ramayana (written by a poet known to us as Valmiki), William Buck has retold the story of Prince Rama-with all its nobility of spirit, courtly intrigue, heroic renunciation, fierce battles, and triumph of good over evil-in a length and manner that will make the great Indian epics accessible to the contemporary reader. The same is true for the Mahabharata-in its original S
