The Indian epic Mahabharat is a vast, magical and timeless literary creation that makes us wonder if all stories have already been told. This collection of speculative stories offers homage to the Mahabharat. The stories alternate between mystery and fantasy, and move in time between the epic age, the present and the year 2049. These stories address simple questions:
What went on in the minds of the heroes of the
Mahabharat? Can we use its episodes to make sense of the India of today? What would Krishna do if he wanted to redeem the future of India? If all stories have been told, so have these. But stories, even upon retelling, can entertain and surprise.
