Description
Many geographical names and personalities connected with Kurukshetra occur in the earliest Sanskrit literature and around this region were enacted the opening scenes of the drama of Indian history. Most of the Vedic literature was composed here and most of the social, religious and political traditions of this country arose in this region. It is therefore regarded as the cradle of Indian civilisation and culture. Kurukshetra shot into prominence as the battle field of Mahabharta and as the birth place of the holy Gita. The great 18-day battle of Mahabharta was fought here in the ancient past between Kauravas and Pandavas for upholding the cause of dharma. It was a war between good and evil, in which the Pandavas were victorious. Bhagvad Gita, the Song Celestial, is the divine message which lord Krishna delivered to Arjuna on the eve of the Great War when he saw the latter wavering from his duty. It epitomises all that is the best and noblest in the Hindu philosophy of life.

no popcorn
the twinned strings at :52 are truly exquisite
beautiful blossoming at 1:14
woah - big change up!
those sounds at 2:23 are very scary!
great strong primal voices - good choices in that passage.
allow me to offer this: i was a little distracted in the first section, wondering if i was distracted by the seemingly unrelated rhythm of the percussion to all else.
jeez! 7:08 and i sat thru it all withOUT popcorn. that was epic! i enjoyed the fruits of your loving labor - anne
