The seeds of war have been planted and the world is on the brink of the greatest of all battles. First in Ashok Bankers The Epic Mahabharata series, The Children of Midnight explores the home of the illustrious Kuru dynasty, which has just welcomed two new sons Dritarashtra and Pandu. Cursed with unfortunate afflictions from the moment they are born, the two nevertheless grow up to be skillful young princes.

Meanwhile, in distant Bhoja, a young Kunti sacrifices her youth ” and her heart to appease the wrath of Sage Durvasa. And his reward for her service inextricably links her fate with that of the entire Kurujangala.
