Captivating, Legible, Gripping and Enchanting.

Whether you are casual reader or a die hard fanatic of hindu epics, Iam sure this series is going to make it to your favourite shelf of the books. It covers many unexplained parts that we hear / read / watch about mahabharata and take them for granted that this is how it was without ever questioning them. The writer did not shy away to share different views that exist about a topic by clearly mentioning them where required. This is just the first volume that I have read with around 50 stories in it and as the name suggests 2002 lesser know stories there are already 10 vol published and more to follow. Stories are short and simple to read. I would love to continue with the series and get mesmerised by the enchanting stories that not many know and would know in future. Mahabharata is indeed a complex story which has a huge backdrop of stories which makes it even more interesting if covered properly and this series I think does justice to that. Each chapter begins with a श्लोक with its meaning below it , this helps to maintain the cultural touch to the book and was my favourite part of the book. Narration is crisp and makes you read the whole story in one go. 5 stars to the author for the research he has done to compile the beautiful and intresting stories in a book.
