A modern retelling of the final days of the Kurukshetra war from the eyes of three main characters of the Mahabharata.
As the Mahabharata war wages on, it shows no mercy and takes no prisoners. Death and destruction abound. In the midst of a world rendered unrecognisable by the lust for power, malice and the machinations of war stand Bhishma, contemplating the immeasurable death he sees around himself as a man who cannot die, Draupadi, above and beyond the chaos and yet at the very centre of it, trying to protect her husbands at any cost, wondering whom to trust, and Arjuna, beloved, conflicted and melancholic in equal measure, uncertain of the ultimate cost of the war he is intent on winning. The Dharma Forest is the first novel in a trilogy filled with complex characters, conflicted loyalties and erotic jealousies from one of India’s most beloved Epics.
