Book Description

Samhita Arni wrote and illustrated this version of The Mahabharatha when she was 12 years old. Her Mahabharatha is bold and unorthodox in its depiction of character and in the critical tone it adopts with the epic's main theme: war. Featuring her own amazing line drawings, this best selling book offers children and adults a fresh perspective on the timeless epic.

Samhita Arni "feels that the real message of the Mahabharata has to do with war. It tells us that war is futile". It is with this in mind that she rewrote the epic. The omissions and the decision to add particular episodes lie in a deep understanding of the characters and the overall plot. Thus Arni's serious and simple language and the alternately beautiful and grotesque characters complement each other in a unique way.
