    Smile Mahabharath - Through the Alphabet

    Here is a wonderful graphic I found online about the Mahabharat and its important aspects described for each letter of the English alphabet.

    This could be a brief introduction to the greatest epic on the planet for those who are unfamiliar! A "Mahabharat for Dummies" if you will.

    A helpful mini-encyclopedia. I actually didn't know that Mahabharata gave an approximation for pi.

    Indeed.. and IsAvAsyA UpaniSad talks about infinity and zero (an extrapolation).

    also notice on "S" where it says Svetaketu, of ChandOgyA UpaniSad fame, started the institution of marriage and before then, married women were free to cohabit with anyone they chose!

    Namaste

    What! No word in the Mahabharata that begins with the letter O, Q or X?
    Does this mean these English-Roman letters have less merit?

    The Mahabharat is all things, and everything, yes? So I challenge all to give an example of a word in MB that could start with the letter O, Q or... Z (hard one!)

    Namaskar,

    But before Sage Svetaketu began the institution, didn't marriages back then still include vows/mantras where the woman was to remain loyal to her husband?

    Or were they lawfully allowed to cohabit with anyone they chose, yet still morally frowned upon if they did?

    Just a few questions that sprung into my mind.
    Nonetheless, this image is indeed wonderful. Great post.

    Dhanyavad.
