My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A rerendering of Mahabharata with a little emphasis on the exploits of Arjuna.

Even though this may be the umpteenth time that one is reading the Mahabharatha, it will turn out to be a good read. While nothing new may be gleaned in terms of the incidents or story, it is a pleasant read.

The book starts with the great grandson, Janamajeya, of Arjuna wanting to learn about his exploits from Veda Vyasa. Vyasa asks him to listen to the exploits from Vaishampayana his disciple. It starts with the birth of the Pandavas and Kauravas and traces through to the time Arjuna disappears amongst the hills of the Himalayas on their path to heaven after having made Parikshit the king of Hastinapur.

A good read.
