I was supposed to read this book with my friend, i recommended this book to her. She even bought it. But unfortunately due to some circumstances, we couldn't read it together. I am sure she will finished it sooner.
Anyway for me this was the best Mahabharata book i have ever read. I love the way story went back and forth. And i also admired how author used multi linear narrative. Those who are my friends know how crazy i am when it comes to Bhyrappa's books. No doubt why this book was my 11th boo I was supposed to read this book with my friend, i recommended this book to her.
No doubt why this book was my 11th book of his. Bhyrappa spent five years in researching this book and he went to various places to get the feel. He is expert when it comes to human relations and thought process.
This book makes you feel realistic and doesn't indulge in hero worshiping of any character. No myths. No miracles. Quite a rationalist book this was. I am sure this book is also available in many languages as well. Books like this should be gifted to friends, family and relatives.
Highly Highly recommended. View all 5 comments. Feb 02, Versha rated it it was amazing Shelves: reviewed , I started this book out of curiosity.
I was curious to know what logical reasons S. Bhyrappa had tried to give in his book de-mythologizing the original tale in a believable way, which is quite a challenge in itself. Well, I must say this interpretation of Mahabharata is very practical and convincing.
It gives realistic reasoning to all most all the mythical facts. Basically this book focuses more on telling how all characters here are just humans with no super power and how they act and react I started this book out of curiosity.
Basically this book focuses more on telling how all characters here are just humans with no super power and how they act and react to a given circumstance in a normal way.
Even God Krishna for that matter! The story starts, when both parties are busy preparing for the war collecting warriors on their side. Arranging other necessities for that. This was my favorite part in this book. I was touched by the way she unveils herself.
Her suffering. Her apathy towards Dharmaraya. And how she first fell for the handsome Arjuna and as she grows old how gradually she sees the real caring, compassion for her in Bhima, how unknowingly her love turns away from Arjuna towards Bhima. The revelation of her feelings is beautifully explained. Then the viewpoint shifts to Arjuna then to Karna and so on. Finally towards the end to the battle field. How both the team suffer. How with in the party they misunderstand each other and solve and move forward.
At last when the war is finally over after losing so much and so many loved ones did the war had any meaning? Did winning seemed worthwhile? Though this kind of thing might not have happened in the real Mahabharata yet one cannot ignore with what has been said here.
Its difficult to write about each characters and their view point, their feelings, frustrations, loss everything in one single book. Without being partial or impractical towards a character or an incident.
Covering this epic without leaving a single thing adding black humour here and there. But it has been accomplished by him exceptionally. It was more than a year since I bought this book and how lucky I was to get a Hardcopy of the English translation of this magnum opus.
