On a huge battlefield stand two armies facing each other. The dust stirred by soldiers covers the sun. Rain-clouds shower flesh and blood, drenching the troops. Along the ground a wind rises; the small stones that the wind carries with it, hit the warriors.With cinematic effects, full of cuts and intercuts, Vyasa-with 1600 electrifying visuals for hot-hearted adults-sets in motion the battlefield of Kurukshetra. From the birth of the Pandavas and Kauravas to the interpenetration of life instincts and death instincts, this first book in this graphic book series rolls out the beginning of interplay of lust and violence which gives to the tale of war, revenge and peace the unmatched regal look.
