Selflessness Personified
#EMACKC000534
Rated for All ages
English-American
Son of the beautiful goddess Ganga, the giver of life, the lad was born to greatness. Not only was he handsome and wise, he was also equally adept on the battlefield or in a regal court. As this tale reveals, Bheeshma is best remembered for his exceptional honesty and kindness. Who else would have uncomplainingly suffered the trials of kingship without its comforts? Who else would have chosen long years of loneliness just to pander to a father's whim?...

Drona, the valiant archer, is second only to Bheeshma among the respected elders of the Mahabharata. Yet he remains an outsider. He added a streak of personal vendetta to that tale of family feud. Drona had studied together with Drupada, who later became the king of Panchala, in the ashram of Agnivesha. When he is unable to buy a glass of milk for his beloved son, he turns to his childhood friend for help. But when Drupada humiliates him, he goes to Hastinapura and becomes t...

The Chivalrous Demon
#EMACKC000592
Rated for All ages
English-UK
Ghatotkacha was one of the finest characters in the Mahabharata - affectionate and kind, even though he was a Rakshasa. Perhaps that was because he was only half Rakshasa as the son of Bheema and the Rakshasi Hidimbaa. From his mother he learnt all the arts of the Rakshasas; from his father he inherited an affectionate and chivalrous temperament....
