Mahabharata Through The Eyes Of Bhima (And Savita Bhabhi)

My friend Prem Panicker has just begun a recreation of MT Vasudevan Nair’s Randaamoozham: The Mahabharata told from the point of view of Bhima. He’s uploading it on his blog, and it promises to be a hell of a series.

In this post, he explains why he’s attempting this.

And here are the first two installments in the series: 1, 2.

Maybe someday I’ll attempt writing the Mahabharata from the point of view of Savita Bhabhi. Yes, I know she’s not in the original story, but she can always be inserted, no? For example:

The Kauravas are about to disrobe Draupadi when she says, “Wait, would you like to disrobe my friend instead?” Savita Bhabhi steps forward.

Duryodhana takes one look at her, turns to Shakuni, and they wink at each other. Draupadi steps aside. Duryodhana grabs Savita Bhabhi’s saree. And pulls.

It comes off with one tug.

“That was just a two-yard saree,” explains Savita Bhabhi. “Nine yards is too much work.”

Savita Bhabhi is now wearing the same choli she wore when she was seven years old along with a thong bikini that, as thong bikinis haven’t yet been invented, is quite a sight for the Kauravas.

Just then a voice pipes up from the throne:

“I can see! I can see! I can see!”
