Mahabharata the reflection of Indian culture. Pandava's were honest and turely gentlemen where as Kaurava's of cruel nature, devil hearted. The victory of honest and truthful Pandava's did come but at the end. All this happened in the real, original epic of 'Mahabharata'.

But now in the modern era; the faith of Pandava's in the truthfulness and honesty has been diminished on the other hand the Kaurava's are sick of their reputation of dishonesty and disgrace which they had earlier faced in the purana's. Here new treatment is implied to the original Mahabharata and has been addressed as "Kalyug's Mahabharata".

At the beginning both Kaurava's and Pandava's set out for Swayamvara arranged for Draupati. While moving for the 'Swayarwala' Kaurava's get class with famous actor Dev Anand who is desperately searching for an actress. Here again the fun stream explores. Kaurava's and Pandava's are already present for Drupati's Swayamvara and to their surprise Ravana from Ramayana participate in the Swayamvara anticipating it as "Sita's Swayamvara" of Ramayana. Here the Swayamvara is won again by the Pandava's and Karna is been insulted. Taking the insult in consideration Kaurava's are angry but are compiled to take the path of truth and honesty. Here on the other hand Draupati is instilling a fear of vanvas which awaited Pandava's if they followed the path of truth.

This time instead of Kaurava's, Pandava's invite them to play the game of 'Dice'. Draupati shrewdly changes the game there by sending Kaurava to vanvas; she takes the revenge of the injustice previously done by the Kaurava's. During the vanvas Ghandhari assumes herself as Sita and cries for the 'choli' made by 'Sauarnamurga' and when waiting for Ravana to come and kidnap her to her surprise the person who comes is Virapan, a sandalwood thief. During the Vanvasa Sharavan Bal who is searching for his parents in the jungle meets Dhrutarastra and Gandhari and assumes them as his own parents.

Here Duryodhana losses his temper and thus Kaurava's and Pandava's prepare for war. Both Sakuni and Drupati decide to give war contract to 'Gauli Bhai' (Lord Krishna). Arjuna and Duryodhana goes to lord Krishna for his help. But this time looking at the politness of Duryodhana and proudiness of Arjuna; lord Krishna decides to take the side of Kaurava's. This time instead of Arjuna, Duryodhana is the one who regrets to fight against his own relatives. Lord Krishna tries to explain him about the law and so called ethics of war and advices them to fight in the path of truth as it was their duty towards their religion. But here arrives the peace followers and anti-militancy godfather Mahatma Gandhi. He avoids Duryodhana from war as according to him peace is the only truth of life and at end only peace wins.

Here Duryodhana takes the place of common man who is confused by both the principle. On one hand he prefers war to get success and on the other hand to follow the peace to achieve success. But one thing is defined that truth wins but at the end.

Here he open up with his own voice of common man who is unwilling to choose either of the path. Here he questions lord Krishna why he did not understand he will nature of the militance even though it was in the path of truth. He also ask Mahatma Gandhi why he did not trespassed the midpoint of militance and anti-militance. As according to him as a common man both Lord Krishna and Mahatma Gandhi has truth in their speech but both were extremists. The fact is that extremists views cause damage to common man only. He once again apologises both but tries to be one speaker from the strength against the unfair treatment of the society.

This play is again given a comedy treatment with the arrival of the 'Kal' that is 'time wheel' which waits for no one.
