The book forms the third and final part of the plan of studying the Mahabharata, from a different point of view, Vol. 1 being-Myths from the Mahabharata-Quest for Immortality, Vol. 2 being- Myths from the Mahabharata-Study in Patterns and Symbols. In this volume are unearthed through myths some iti-ha-asa records, which shed light on the facts and incidents of the hoary past, as yet shrouded in mystery. The iti-ha-asa records through myths, such as those gathered round the sage Agastya and those of the advent of the river Ganga, can be taken as breathing the 'true history' from the modern day point of view. Some iti-ha-asa records in the Mahabharata as seen through the tales of "Metamorphosis" and the "Miscellaneous Tales" lead us to the study of 'patterns' and are a help to explain many a myth. The Appendices serve as searchlight on some myths and folktales. Printed Pages: 304.
