History View

Mahabharat is traditionally ascribed to the sage named ‘Vyas’ who is a major and significant role player in this epic. First section of this epic states that it was Ganesha who wrote down the text to Vyas’s dictation but later it was claimed by some scholars that Ganesha was not involved in its drafting or framing. The background to the Mahabharata suggests the origin of the epic occurs “after the very early Vedic period” and before “the first Indian ’empire’ was to rise in the third century B.C.

The accuracy of the Kurukshetra War is unorganized. Numerous students of history predict the date of the Kurukshetra battle to Iron Age India of the tenth century BCE. The setting of the epic has a chronicled point of reference in Iron Age (Vedic) India, where the Kuru realm was the focal point of political power during approximately 1200 to 800 BCE.A dynastic struggle of the period might have been the motivation for the ‘Jaya’ , the establishment on which the Mahābhārata corpus was worked, with a climactic fight, at last coming to be considered a significant occasion.
