The Mahabharata is an epic narrative of the Kurukshetra War and the fates of the Kaurava and the Pandava princes.
It also contains philosophical and devotional material, such as a discussion of the four "goals of life" or purusharthas.
It's a tale of tragic war which pitted brothers against brothers, sons against fathers and students against teachers.
Mahabharata is not only a story, it is a source of philosophical and spiritual inspiration for many. It is mainly known for Bhagavad Gita, a gist of timeless principles told in the Indian philosophy.
We all are aware of the basic facts of the Mahabharata – we know about the animosity between the five sons of Pandu, and the hundred sons of Dhritrashtra. We are aware of how this hatred played an important role in the
game of dice between the two parties, and how, consequently, the Pandavas lost their land and their common wife, Draupadi, to the Kauravas.
After being in exile for 13 years, when the Pandavas returned, Duryodhan refused to give them back half of their land, which they were entitled to. This called for war.
