The Lilboox Mahabharata: A Case Study.
- Purposeful. Our 6 part series on Mahabharata focuses on two threads – the geopolitical context of the key kingdoms in early India, and the personal drives of the key characters.
- Simple. Stories must contribute to our understanding of the key characters, or the key kingdoms. Many back stories, diversions and subplots have been removed, that makes this epic rich, but does not contribute to the purpose of our adaptation.
- Authentic. Stories and details closely stick to the Critical Edition of the text, rather than some popular adaptations.
- Visual Aids. Each character has unique visual traits, such as their style of hair, color of dress, and unique necklaces that help the reader navigate this giant epic. The colors of each kingdom, the facades of each city, are unique.
- Maps. There are many maps, but none with more information than what is needed to convey.
