The Mahabharata is an epic not only by its size and the stories of valour it narrates, though they are wonderful. It is so rich in stories that it is said that if all written literature in all languages is lost and the Mahabharata survives, it would be able to replace the lost stories.While, like most epics, the central story is the rivalry of the Pandavas and the Kauravas for the throne of Hastinapura, the relevance of the Mahabharata to this day is because it examines the human condition unflinchingly, honestly, tells us why people do things they do, why they are the way they are.
