The Mahabharata is a text of about seventy-five thousand verses or three million words, some fifteen times the combined length of the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament, or seven times the Iliad and the Odyssey combined, and a hundred times more interesting.

Doesn't sound like the voice of someone bent on ridicule of The Mahabharata to me.
