This unique work is the result of a sustained and patient endeavour of Professor S. Sorensen, for over two decades. It records almost all the available names of persons, places and episodes that occur in the Mahabharata.
The details of the exploits and episodes pertaining to particular persons are given as a summary with references to the exact location in the text. Summaries of Parvans, minor Parvans, Upakhyanas - like Anusasanika, Moksadharma, Narayaniya, Nalopakhyana etc. are given.
All the names listed in different stotras find their place here. Thus the Index is virtually a thesaurus of the great epic, enabling the readers to find all information about several events scattered all over the great work. Apart from being a mere Index, it gives an interesting and meaningful reading for even a casual reader.
