KUNTI, DRI, PANDU: 3 YOUNG LIVES SHAPED BY WAR AND DHARMA
Queen Satyavati and Bhishma Pitama fear for the future of the Kuru Empire. Young princes Panduranga and Dritarashtra are both afflicted with conditions that severely impair their chances of ascending the throne of Hastinapura.
Seizing the opportunity, the evil Jarasandha forces some of the most powerful kingdoms in a rebel Alliance against the Kurus. Bhishma Pitama accepts the challenge, promising Satyavati that he will do all the fighting.
But within moments of the battle’s start, Jarasandha pulls a tactic that threatens to eliminate even the powerful Bhishma from the field! Now young Dri and Pandu must fight for their lives–and their legacy.
Meanwhile, in distant Bhoja, young princess Kunti sacrifices her budding romance and a lazy summer with friends to serve the visiting Sage Durvasa. The old brahmin’s constant demands test her to the limit. Even his parting gift is a boon that turns out to be less a gift than a curse!
Fantastic battle scenes, and unparalleled imagination mark this extraordinary epic adventure from India’s Epic Storyteller. Delving into the youthful lives of the parents of the Pandavas and father of the Kauravas, The Children of Midnight shows you the untold stories behind the great epic Mahabharata.
