Mahabharata is the greatest chronicle ever narrated, and most people would have heard something or other about this grand itihasa. Through movies, tele-series, novels, short stories, poems, dramas, folk tales, traditions and a thousand other ways, opinions are made and people assume that they know for sure what's actually inside this book. But are all these hearsays, facts from the real textual Mahabharata? Like a jumbled Rubik’s cube in their hand that they are unable to solve, are people left with a mixed up version of Mahabharata? Do they know how and where to look for the answers?

Overview of the Program

Mahabharata is the greatest chronicle ever narrated, and most people would have heard something or other about this grand itihasa. Through movies, tele-series, novels, short stories, poems, dramas, folk tales, traditions and a thousand other ways, opinions are made and people assume that they know for sure what's actually inside this book. But are all these hearsays, facts from the real textual Mahabharata? Like a jumbled Rubik’s cube in their hand that they are unable to solve, are people left with a mixed up version of Mahabharata? Do they know how and where to look for the answers?

This Program will help people solve this conundrum. This Program is an introduction to the multidimensionality of this itihasa, with its textual traditions, complex characters, profound stories, insightful conversations etc. Each module in this Program is intended to grant a deeper vision and understanding of the Mahabharata, and convey how and where to find answers. The theme of the Program is a 2 x 2 Rubik’s cube that has 24 faces. The modules within the Program are the faces of the cube. As a student progresses in this Program, he / she solves a 2 x 2 Mahabharata Rubik’s cube.

By the end of the Program, a student will have known enough to take on and befriend this wise and ancient narrative. By joining this Program, the student will start his / her journey of Mahabharata in their life.
