    In Hindu culture, the Mahabharata holds a great significance; it can be read as a scripture, an epic, a moral fable (though a long one!), or just as a family saga. However, for most Hindus, the various facets of human nature in the Mahabharata serve as guidelines on the nuances of Dharma too.

    I have read several different versions of the Mahabharata, including those by C. Rajagopalachari (my favourite) and Devdutt Pattanaik.

    Check the The Economic Times graphic, featured below, on the Mahabharata.
