The Mahabharata

The Mahabharata is a few 3,500 years outdated and is the longest poem in any language. it truly is one of many founding epics of Indian tradition and, with its mix of cosmic drama and profound philosophy (one small part kinds the BHAGHAVAD GITA) it holds aunique position in global literature. during this tremendously shortened prose rendering, Narayan makes use of all his remarkable abilities to show to a latest reader why this can be one of these nice tale.

The gender of the gift: problems with women and problems with society in Melanesia
