the Book University's first venture is the Mahabharata, summarised by one of the
greatest Indians, C. Rajagopalachari; the second work is on a section of it, the Gita, by
H. V. Divatia, an eminent jurist and a student of philosophy.
Centuries ago, it was proclaimed of the Mahabharata: "What is not in it, is
no where." After twenty-five centuries, we can use the same words about it. He
who knows it not, knows not the heights and depths of the soul; he misses the trials and
tragedy and the beauty and grandeur of life.
