    Ganga, Devabrata and Shantanu

    The first episode of the Stories of Mahabharata podcast series has been missing for a long time. The episode was not added because it did not have the production quality that we have been striving for. After a long break, we finally found some time to rerecord this episode and mix the vocal track with sound effects and music to make it at par with the rest of the episodes. We hope you like it.

    This episode tells the story of the beginnings of the great saga told by Rishi Vyasa and written by lord Ganesha. The story begins with the narrative of King Shantanu's marriage with Ganga and the birth of Devabrata. Later we learn how prince Devabrata becomes the great Bhishma because of his “Bhisham” or profound vow – a vow which kickstarts the story of the Mahabharata and the destiny of the Kuru dynasty.

I love it. please put more episodes.

I think the story of Mahabharata doesn't end at Abhimanyu's death. Please put some more episodes regarding what happened after Abhimanyu's death, till the 'Sarpayaga' (snake killing ceremony) conducted by Janamejaya, Abhimanyu's grandson.

Awesome Narration 0f a Great Epic

I loved this production. I couldn't stop listening. Imagine my surprise when I reached the last episode and was left dangling in midair. Can someone please tell me how I can find the rest of the episodes? Once again, I want to thank Mr. Bhawmik and Mr. Azi for a presentation Worthy of the Mahabharata.

beautifully done

This is officially the best way to experience the Mahabharata on audible. I binged it to oblivion and now I'm just waiting for them to catch up. This has absolutely piqued my interest in Hinduism.

A Cultural Performance

This performance brings life to a story that is completely new to an English native like me in a way that doesn’t feel too different or alien to understand

Well done!

The stories of the Mahabharata come alive with passionate narration, mystical music and cosmic sound effects. I enjoy binge listening to this instead of watching boring Hollywood garbage.
