In the year 3137 BC, a great war raged between the powers of good and evil. A war that shook the souls of men. A war that was fought for righteousness...The Dharma. A war that was overseen by Krishna, the Lord of the universe, himself. A war that we now know as " The Mahabharata."
The One is the tale of a valorous soul that set foot on the battlefield of Kurukshetra - a warrior in his teens fighting battle scarred veterans three times his age. And,by doing this, this noble lad conquered the hearts of millions thereafter.
OUR STRETCH GOAL
GLIMPSE OF OUR REWARDS
This honorable warrior took up the name of "Abhimanyu" - "The One," and he descended into the holy bloodbath between the Kauravas and the Pandvas on the 13th day from the side of the latter. Bellowing his dreaded war cry, the spear-mighty teen flung himself headfirst into the deadliest battle-formation of the time called the "Chakravyu." His prowess in the pits of war surprised foe and friend alike. The One performed his dance... the Dance of Death...leaving a hundred thousand lifeless forms in his bloody wake. But this dance couldn't last forever...the Lord of Deceit was lying in wait, ready to hand him over to his enemies. And through devilish means this unholy alliance bested the youthful combatant.
Thus on the very day that Abhimanyu made his prodigal debut, several of the Kaurava veterans unjustly ambushed him in the devious formations of the Chakravyu. In the final battle that waged between The One and the many opposing him, the gallant teen was ultimately struck down. But, the thundering roar of The One can still be heard tearing through the pages of mythology, right into the depths of our hearts, violently crying out against the injustice and outright tragedy of war.
