Epic Retold

Description (in English): 

Epic Retold attempts to pass a camel through the eye of a needle by rewriting the longest epic in the world using one of its shortest vehicles. The Mahabharata is the story of a war: bitter, poignant, devastating. Told here from the perspective of Bhima, Epic Retold makes a fierce antiwar statement. It is complex experiment that was originally micro-blogged on the Internet: a grand old epic reinterpreted for a new generation.

Epic Retold is the story of The Mahabharata by Vyasa told in the perspective of the villan of the story Duryodhana using Twitter.

Pull Quotes: 

"I think of the first day I faced off with Bhima, that hot morning of our childhood at the skills demonstration. Could all this have happened if I had killed him then? If only Dronacharya had not intervened!"
