My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I heard a lot about the great Sanskrit Playwright Bhasa’s plays especially “Urubhangam” (Shattered Thigh) and Karnabharam (Karna’s Burden). But due to lack of knowledge of the language it was hard for me to go through the plays. Moreover, I was looking for a book which gives some light on the sanskrit plays of the 2nd century era. The elements, features or rather rasas which is described in the introduction of this book was quite informative. The translation is quite simple and information given is worth reading. The six plays describing the some events of Mahabharata was quite interesting especially the last two plays.
