Publisher's Summary

It is a popular belief that the Ramayana is idealistic while the Mahabharata is realistic. Yet these two epics have identical building blocks, identical themes and identical history. 

In this groundbreaking book, Devdutt Pattanaik, India’s most popular mythologist, explores the similarities and dissimilarities between the two epics in a ‘playful analysis’. Whether it is the family structure, forest exile or war, the comparison between the two epics proves a startling point - the Mahabharata is in fact a reaction to the events in the Ramayana.

Ideas in this book are distributed over 56 chapters. In temple ritual, Vishnu is offered 8 different meals daily, different on all seven days of the week - 56 dishes in all. May each chapter serve as a mouthwatering offering to the Vishnu within you.

Please note: This audiobook is in Hindi.

Excellent cexplaination of both the epics.

Loved the book.
The way author has described the subject is wonderful.
Both the epics are grreat treasures of Indian Mythology and to compare them is a Himalayan task. Dr. Pattnayak has done a great job.
