An English summary of Gujarati novel of the same name by the author.
King Janamejaya, the son of Parikshat, the mighty kind of the Bharata race ruled at Hastinapur. At a sacrificial session, Vaishampayana recited the Epic called Jaya, popularly known as the Mahabharata. After the Mahabharata had been recited, the king spoke to Vaishmayana thus: In the epic Jaya you have told me all about the Master and his descendants, who were my ancestors; but you have not told me how Lord Parashurama, the valorous son of Bhrigu who was God, saved mankind from wicked kings. Tell me all about him.
This novel unfolds his reply and dwells on the epic of the Ancients, the Bhrigus, the Vasishthas and the Vishwamitras, as they lived in the great days of old.
