Mahabharata Episode 1: Beginnings

Ganga, Devabrata and Shantanu

Ganga, Devabrata and Shantanu

The first episode of the Stories of Mahabharata podcast series has been missing for a long time. The episode was not added because it did not have the production quality that we have been striving for. After a long break, we finally found some time to rerecord this episode and mix the vocal track with sound effects and music to make it at par with the rest of the episodes. We hope you like it.

This episode tells the story of the beginnings of the great saga told by Rishi Vyasa and written by lord Ganesha. The story begins with the narrative of King Shantanu’s marriage with Ganga and the birth of Devabrata. Later we learn how prince Devabrata becomes the great Bhishma because of his “Bhisham” or profound vow – a vow which kickstarts the story of the Mahabharata and the destiny of the Kuru dynasty.

  1. Hi
    I am very happy to find Mahabharata in podcasts and congratulate Sudipta Bhawmik for making this to happen. My only observation is that the words ‘said’ and ‘heart’ are wrongly pronounced. But for that it is a great podcast.
