A rigged game of dice brings the 100 Kaurava princes, led by the scheming Duryodhana, to the battlefield against their cousins, the five Pandavas - the noble but gullible Yudhisthira, the mighty Bheema, master archer Arjuna and the twins, Nakula and Sahadeva. The epic war of Kurukshetra, which lasted 18 tragic days, pit brother against brother, uncle against nephew and disciple against teacher. The intense battles between warriors equally fearless and skilled - Karna and Abhimanyu, Arjuna and Bheeshma, Drona and Dhrishtadyumna, and Karna and Arjuna - were as much conflicts of loyalty and ambition as they were of choices. The side they chose to support, or fight against, led them into a labyrinth of duty and destiny, where both the defeated and the victorious - lost something or someone precious to them. In this classic retelling of the Mahabharata, written especially for young readers by the inimitable Upendrakishore Ray Chowdhury, and checked and proofed originally by none other than Rabindranath Tagore, translated for the first time into English by leading children's writer and translator, Swapna Dutta, this eternal tale is brought to life in all its drama and detail.
