This book carries Bengali translation of Sahitya Akademi award winning Marathi study of The Mahabharata by noted Marathi novelist Irawati Karvei. It has been translated by Arundhati Bandyopadhyay.
This celebrated book on the Mahabharata and its character studies Mahabharata's great figures with all their virtues and their equally numerous faults. Seen through her eyes the Mahabharata is more than a work which Hindus look upon as divinely inspired, and venerate. It is a record of complex humanity and a mirror to all the faces which we ourselves wear.
