Mahabharata Folk Variations

This book consists of two essays – (a) Variations in Indonesian Mahabharata, and (b) How Balarama Became Abhimanyu’s Father-In-Law. Mahabharata is a living tradition in Indonesia like in India. However, the folk tradition of Indonesia narrates a Mahabharata that despite retaining the basic frame of Indian Mahabharata, is still much different. In the first essay, the author points out the major variations in Indonesian Mahabharata that would help researchers in comparative study to find ready reference. The second essay deals with Folk variation in Mahabharata as found in South India. The second essay focuses on a particular narrative that brings out the marginalized characters of classical Mahabharata in rich glory.
