Mahabharat is one of the gretest and oldest epics of the world. According to belief and evidence which are being found, it was written about 2000-3000 BC. Because the rivers, the situations of stars and planets and situation of areas, rivers and forests mentioned in it could be found then. Though story is written in epic style still it is related to history and the life style of that time. Since no civiliztion except roman and few other are as old as indian civilization, it was hard for most of the scholars to believe that any civilization so developed and technologically superior could exist 3000-2000 B.C. But if they strain their brain they would get to know that civilization and science keeps on grow and decline.. same is the case with Mahabharat. The time when it was written civilization was well developed and scientfic ahich has been mentioned in poetic style.

Now why Mahabharat is the great national epic of India.. Becaus it has been written in highly poetic style using several figures of speech and poetic tools. It is well woven. No epic or poem, in the world is equal to it. It guides human race with the greatest philosophy of the world "Geeta" where a man is told about "Karm Yog". It is spiritual, it is practical, it is scientfic as well as it tells you the way of the world. All the incidents that take place in the world, can be found in Mahabharat only. It is simply unique and greatest of all the literatures. If you understand it only, you are able to understand the psychology of human kind..
