Evil in The Mahabharata

Meena Arora Nayak (Author)

Good and evil, loyalty and treachery, faith and doubt, honour and ignominy-the Mahabharata has served as a primer for codes of conduct to generations of Hindus. Over time, the epic has also fascinated those who love a tale well told. In its telling, however, the story has lost much of its richness and nuance, and the characters have become one-dimensional cut-outs-either starkly good or irredeemably evil.

In this reinterpretation, Meena Arora Nayak analyses how the values espoused in the Mahabharata came to be distorted into meagre archetypes, creating customary laws that injure society even today.
