The world we see today is shaped by various material as well as normative factors. Our culture, our values, our ethos, our common perspective- all of them shape the way in which we interact with each other in the society. Even in a global setting, the ways in which one nation interacts with another nation is largely determined by the established theories of International Relations. Speaking of history, India has a lustrous line ups of endless epics that act as a moral backbone for the people in their endeavors. One question that arises in this regard is that are these epics just stories with a strong moral background or are they relevant in today’s context as well? If so, then can they be used to solve the real life scenarios in a global setting? This paper analyses the same questions raised in light of one of the most celebrated epics in India- the Mahabharata.
