'The Mahabharata' is one of the greatest stories ever told. Though the basic plot is widely known, there is much more to the epic than the dispute between Kouravas and Pandavas that led to the battle in Kurukshetra. Indeed, there are innumerable sub-plots embedded in the Mahabharata's staggering 80,000 shlokas or couplets. The 4th volume of 'The Mahabharata' includes Virata Parva and almost all of Udyoga Parva. It describes the Pandavas' 13th year of exile which they spend in disguise in King Virata's court.
