The Mahabharata is an ancient Indian epic, written by Sir Krishnadaipawan Bedbash, where the most story revolves around two branches of a family- the Pandavas and Kauravas – who , in the Kurukshetra war , battle for the throne of Hastinapura. The story begins when the blindness of Dhritarashtra , the elder of two princes , causes him to be omitted in favour of his brother Pandu as king on their father’s death .A curse prevents Pandu from fathering of children , however and his wife Kunti asks the gods to be father children in Pandu’s name. As a result , the god Dharma fathers Yudhistira , the wind fathers Bhima , Indra fathers Arjuna , and the Ashvins father Nakula and Sahadeva.

On the other hand Dhritarashtra has a wife named Gandhari. They has passed the same problem. Gandhari gave a birth of a solid flesh. From their the 100 of Kauravas are borned. The enmity and jealousy that develops between the cousin forces the Pandavas to leave the kingdom when their father dies. In a while they got the place Indraprastha. There they makes the own palace. During their exile the five jointly marry Draupadi and meet their cousin Krishna, who remains their friend and companion thereafter.

Unfortunately they lost there palace and everything including their wife in gambling alias PASA, there Draupadi was embarrassed by evil Kauravas, fortunately Lord Sri Krishna saved her , for the loosing of palace they went to jungle for this time for 12 years. There they learns about the strategy for war in jungle. They have another rule that after 12 year they have to stay in disguise for 1 year. They stayed for 1 year in the country of king Uttar. After passing that penalty they came back ask for there land then Durjadhan refused. Then they chooses the war Lord Sri Krishna supports them. And at last they won the war.

Ramayana started with the birth of Shree Ram, this story is written by the monk Balmiki.The reason for why Lord Vishnu had to taka avatar of Lord Rama was to sustain Dharma by killing the Asura Ravana. One day, four Brahma mansa putras , come to visit Vishnu at his abode , Vaikunta. There the guards of Lord Shree Venkateshwar, stopped Bramha putra. They give a curse that to take birth with Sri Venkateshwar as villain of him. Then those guards are the Ravana and Kumbhakarna.

In this war Bhuvisan, who supports the good ideal. So he was exiled from the Ravana’s country. There has a another character named Hanuman who was the son of wind god Pawan, Hanuman has excessive power and the loyalty for Lord Shree Ram. There has an another character named Sugreev. Lord Shree Ram fights with Ravana with the Sugreev’s army and Ram’s eventual return to Ayodhya to be crowned king.There are many versions of Ramayana in Indian languages , besides Buddhist , sikh and Jain adaptions.
