    Anyhow he praised for Mahabharat ny dear could u tell me d all historical person were mad to write on it? D archaeological identity, suryavashi, chandravanshi clan still presents today & what we belong to d Bharatvanshi if British didnt interpreted we would better be known as Bhartiya irrespective of Indian.Some sort of knowledge prove that river Saraswati was once present. So Plz don’t think according to your doctrine Mr. Doctor.Jay Shiya Ram

    In Kannada, couple of word to word translation works are available.

    a) Alasinghachar Mahabharatha( prose exactly matching each sloka) – My favourite

    b) University of Mysore ( Prasaranga) has published 4 volumes till date — Good one

    c) Bharatha bharathi prakakshana – Rangapriya swamiji’s publishin series on ramayana,mahabharatha,bhagavatha

    A must read epic for every soul on the earth irrespective of religion. Thanks a lot for making it available to everyone. I also request for a tamil translation.

    Yudhishtira is far nobler than Jesus.

    Yudhishtira turned down Lord Indra’s offer of Heavenly Aboard.

    Instead, he stated that wherever his kin are, there his Svarga exists.

    This is totally “Unconditional” love.

    To Asad Qureshi

    Read books by David Frawley. They would give lots of information on Hinduism. Besides if you read directly Epics, they would go bouncers.
