We started our first class today with our main topic for the year ; The Story of "Mahabharata."  Sage Veda Vyasa recited the epic and it was scribed by none other than Ganesha.  We talked about the main theme of the Story - A power struggle over the throne of Hastinapur by two sets of cousins Pandavas & Kauravas. The struggle culminates in the great battle of Kurukshetra; battle between Dharma and Adharma. 
We talked about the who is who of the Mahabharat;  looking at a pictorial family tree with the main characters. 
In the coming weeks, the great tale will unfold and students will get to know more details about each of the characters . Mahabharata is written as a 'story within a story' approach and we will try to follow the same in class.
