The story as it has come down to us has many variations from the original narration in the Markandeya Purana. The folk- singers, the dramatists and the poets who have handled the story have all added to it -an incident here, a character there - for greater effect. It is worth mentioning that Gandhiji, whose book 'My Experiments with Truth' is justly famous, was greatly inspired by a dramatic representation of this story which he had seen in his boyhood.
This is the story of a king, who when pitted against forces immensely more powerful than himself faces them with an unflinching faith in integrity.
