About the book:

Bhima the third brother of the Pandavas was giant sized, full of pranks, naughty, and lovable. He is shown to pull Draupadi's hair, teasing Jalandhara, Duryodhana's sister in law, and always talking merrily. He makes Drupad 'force' the Pandavas to take a large dowry. When they return to Hastinapur, he heads the big bridal procession.
The book begins with Yudhisthir and Draupadi's first night where Draupadi takes a pledge which Yudhisthir agrees. While on their procession to Hastinapur, Bhima comes across Jalandhara and likes her. To prevent her from going by boat since he wants her to travel by land with them, Bhima bores holes in the boat's sides. However Krishna puts everything right. The book ends with the Pandavas again going away to Khandavaprastha to form a new settlement and start a new kingdom.
