SELECTIONS FROM VYASA'S MAHABHARTA: THE DICING, THE SEQUEL TO THE DICING & THE TEMPTATION OF KARNA
text_tax Rs 150
Vyasa’s Mahabharata is the longest epic in human literature – eight times as long as the Iliad and the Odyssey combined, four times the size of Valmiki’s Ramayana, and about three-and-a half times the length of the Bible. The gospel of dharma runs like a sacred thread runs through all the complex movements in the epic, which is one of our noblest heritages.
The present critical study concentrates on an analysis of ‘The Dicing’ and the ‘Sequel to the Dicing’ as well as ‘The Temptation of Karna’ (Translated and edited by J.A.B. Van Buitenen), as prescribed for the English Honours students of the universities.
