"Mahabharater Katha, of which this is a translation, seeks to state anew `that Mahabharat is no dim and petrified account of antiquity, but that it is very much present in the flow of human life even now'. Buddhadeva Bose essentially looks for meanings of the ancient `myths' in today's context. .... The result is an evocative treatise that opens a totally new horizon for the interpretation of Mahabharat in contemporary terms."
