Four Stories from the Mahabharata are a part of the parallel narrative of the epic and tell the stories of four girl who come from different backgrounds. Sukanya is a princess, Shruvawati and Suprabha are simple girls living in hermitages while Shweta is a court dancer. What is common to them is their spirited personality, their acute sense of self respect and their ability to hold on to their principles and convictions at all costs. Love comes to each one in a different way, changing her life completely. But they all choose to take fate in their hands, living a life of courage and action.
