Two stories on Mahabharata. The first 'Khandavadahana' is an interpretative story on why and how Krishna and Arjuna burnt the Khandava forest, and its political significance. The story attempts to interpret Mahabharata rationally by extracting 'history' from Myth. The story also attempts to portray Krishna and Arjuna's characters from 'modern' perspective. The second story is about the next generation Pandavas, i.e. the sons of the Pandavas, and their thoughts and anguishes about the coming Kurukshetra war. The story attempts to portray the 'marginalised' characters of Mahabharata.
