Epic Retold attempts to pass a camel through the eye of a needle by rewriting the longest epic in the world using one of the shortest tools in modern communication. The Mahabharata is the story of a war: bitter, poignant, devastating. Told here from the perspective of Bhima, Epic Retold makes a fierce anti-war statement. It is a complex experiment that was originally microblogged on the Internet: a grand old epic reinterpreted for a new generation.
