The Mahabharata is one of the two major Sanskrit epics of ancient India, the other being the Ramayana.
Besides its epic narrative of the Kurukshetra War and the fates of the Kaurava and the Pandava princes, the Mahabharata contains philosophical and devotional material, such as a discussion of the four "goals of life" or purusharthas. Among the principal works and stories in the Mahabharata are the Bhagavad Gita, the story of Damayanti, an abbreviated version of the Ramayana, and the Rishyasringa, often considered as works in their own right.
Traditionally, the authorship of the Mahabharata is attributed to Maharshi Ved Vyas. SO here we are presenting a collection of some major stories of Mahabharat through this application for your android device.
What is Mahabharat?
Mahabharat, which literally means ‘the great story of Bharat dynasty’ is part of the Hindu Itihās, i.e. ‘that which happened’. It is an extraordinary story of sibling rivalry, diplomatic maneuvering and shifting of human values culminating in a direct confrontation on the battlefield of Kurukshetra between five sons of King Pandu (Pandavas) and hundred sons of King Dhritarastra (Kauravas). It's a tale of tragic war which pitted brothers against brothers, sons against fathers and students against teachers. Exceptional characters, in-depth and complex set of interwoven relationships and dramatization on a grand scale makes this epic a memorable one. It's also a saga which marks the end of an era (dvapar Yuga) wherein characters lived up to morals, values and principles to the beginning of an era (Kali Yuga), wherein selfishness, deceit and immorality rules the reins.
Besides compelling drama and riveting plot, Mahabharata is unique in many ways. Larger than life characters including that of Lord Krishna, considered as an incarnation of Lord Vishnu; Bhisma - great grandfather of principle warriors, who pledged to serve the kingdom of Hastinapur and ended up being a silent witness of its fall; Arjuna - unparalleled archer of that time, who laid down his arms at the beginning of the war; Karna - son of Kunti who ended up on the enemy camp due to misfortune; Yudhisthir - an icon of truth who was compelled to lie to win over the battle; Duryodhan - son of blind king whose unending ambitions became the root cause of trouble; Dronacharya - accomplished teacher of that time, who was forced to fight against his favorite student Arjuna...all make this epic spectacular and fascinating.
