Why we do call the India as Maha Bharat. And also why that scripture ( about pandavas and Kauravavas) named Mahabharat

Thank you

We call India as Bharat after a king named Bharat (son of Rishabhdeva) who ruled India millions of years ago. Consequently, the great war of India (Kurukshetra, to be specific) owned the scripture its name "Mahabharat". Maha = great and Bharat = India
