In 2016, I spent a month in Hampi to read Bibek Debroy’s 10-volume translation of the Mahabharata. It was a life-changing experience, and I formed a bond with the author through correspondence ever since. I’d posted about my experience on Instagram, but I’d like to move all the posts here, for easy retrieval.
