Watching a quiz show in a T.V. channel recently, made me realise how far the new generation is from the epics and folklore of our country. Now – a-days even a child as young as seven or eight year old, knows about Harry Potter while even the teens find it difficult to name the characters from Mahabharata – the greatest Indian epic. Gone are the days when our grandmothers use to entertain us through fabulous stories. Those stories were treasure boxes that gifted the children with the power of imagination, insight into our rich culture and heritage and above all values for a lifetime. This is very true in the case of Mahabharata. It is said that there is no plot that is untouched in this great epic and that makes it relevant in this modern era too.
The epic saga of Mahabharata has attracted me for many fascinating reasons. I love the characters, morals, adventures, fiction, knowledge and wisdom shared by the innumerable stories of Mahabharata. It is one of the two Indian epics that narrates the importance of morals and values in life. It is a rich source of ethics and life lessons.
