Principles and Techniques

Of late, I am being attracted to Ramayana and Mahabharatha, the latter being my favourite. It is said that there is no principle that has been left untold in the Ramayana and the same is true w.r.t techniques, in the Mahabharatha. I find an interesting relationship with programming languages, where principles and techniques are more important than the language details.[Stroustrup ;)] The Mahabharatha illustrates all strategies and techniques, while Ramayana illustrates principles. Meanwhile I am searching for a book called “Parva” by S.L Bhyrappa. People say that it gives a very different account of the Mahabharatha and that the book has won many awards. As far as Ramayana is concerned, it is simple, but very difficult to understand.
