View all copies of this ISBN edition:

The Indian epic Mahabharat is a vast, magical and timeless literary creation that makes us wonder if all stories have already been told. This collection of speculative stories offers homage to the Mahabharat. The stories alternate between mystery and fantasy, and move in time between the epic age, the present and the year 2049. These stories address simple questions: What went on in the minds of the heroes of the Mahabharat? Can we use its episodes to make sense of the India of today? What would Krishna do if he wanted to redeem the future of India? If all stories have been told, so have these. But stories, even upon retelling, can entertain and surprise.

About the Author:

A.K. Kulshreshth’s short stories have appeared in 34th Parallel, Asia Literary Review, Mascara Literary Review, Mobius: the Journal of Social Change, Muse India, Newleaf, Silver Fish 4 and Wasafiri. He has bachelor’s and master’s degrees in engineering, and a Ph.D. in management. He lives in Singapore. He has worked in the telecoms, consumer and engineering industries for twenty years.


"Taking place during the distant past, present, and not-so-pleasant future, the stories beg the reader to ponder the most difficult questions in life... Through each story, one idea rings true: people in power often make the wrong decisions. Kulshreshth cleverly chooses varying point-of-views for his stories, challenging the reader to piece together mysteries and question morality."
