This is a beautiful novel that examines the all-too-common emotions of vengeance, envy, and hate. Yet, somehow even when the characters do things that are heinous, there's empathy in the writing. Since I'm not familiar with the Mahabarata, I can't say how closely the story follows, but I'm motivated to pick up my copy and finally read it through!
