The Mahabharatha: A Childs View

(1999)
A non fiction book by

 
 
The Mahabharatha, a great Indian epic, is a compelling chronicle of ambition and destruction. Samhita Arni's re-telling - written when she was just twelve years old - is bold and unorthodox in its depiction of characters, and in the sharply critical tone it adopts towards the epic's main theme: war. Illustrated with charming and intricate line drawings, this book offers a fresh and accessible perspective on this timeless myth. Originally published in the UK as two separate volumes, the book is now available as single combined edition.
