The gallant heroes of the Mahabharata are shining examples of valour and chivalry. Yet they also had their weak spots. They were swayed by conflicting emotions which only served to heighten the epic grandeur of the greatest story ever told. In this poem of 100,000 verses, human foibles and heroism loom larger than life even as the Pandava brothers emerge victorious over their jealous Kaurava cousins. Amar Chitra Katha brings you the Heroes from the Mahabharata Collection, which contains titles like Bheeshma, Drona, Tales of Arjuna, Karna, and Abhimanyu. Bheeshma, the son of Shantanu and Ganga, took a grave oath to fulfil his father’s wishes and remained a symbol of integrity, till his last breath. Drona, the greatest teacher of that time, imparted Arjuna and the Pandavas the skills that helped them win the war but ended up losing his life on the battlefield. Karna, perhaps the most tragic figure in the epic, was abandoned at birth yet grew up famed for his courage and generosity. Arjuna, the conflicted hero of the Mahabharata, who along with his brothers, battled for their birthright in the holy war and Abhimanyu, the son of Arjuna, who perished at a young age, while proving his bravery in the Kurukshetra war. The stories of these heroes are bound to arouse great emotions in the readers and inspire them to reach greater heights.
