Set in a land called Mayabharat, which floats above the wonder and desperation that is India, this spiraling adventure weaves between characters as diverse as sadhus, sword swallowers, street performers, circus crowds, drug dealers, politicians, patels and police inspectors. It delves into the heart of city life on the streets and railway platforms.

It waits with us at the market stalls and dhabas. It holds our hand as we venture through the darkness of jhuggies, brothels and cemeteries. And it thrusts us into the heart of traditional village life during an intense struggle around issues of caste, karma and corruption. A delicate love story, The Mayabharata is a kaleidoscopic voyage that entices and enthralls and will make you ponder - even shed a few tears for - the toiling poor as they struggle to find meaning in their lives.

The Mayabharata is dedicated to the Scheduled Castes of India, and especially to their women.
