The Kuru Clan
Gandharis sons, the kauravas, grew up filled with hatred for their cousins, the pandavas. The rivalry between these two sets of cousins of the kuru house, grew and simmered over decades, until it culminated in a gigantic battle, the Mahabharata war. Most of the kings and princes of North India were related to the Kuru house and were forced to pick sides. In the horrific battle that ensued, cousins and nephews, uncles and grandsires, grandsons and fathers-i-law fought and killed each other. When the victorious pandavas grew old and abdicated their throne, their heir was pareekshit, the only kuru male, apart from them, to survive the war.
This collection tells the stories of some of the Kurus, and their roles in the great war.
