Kartikeya wowww another masterpiece from Anuja
Reviewed in India on 10 December 2017
Kartikeya is a fantastic tale of our beloved god murugan right from his conception till his family life begins. While plenty of facts about him might have been revealed already in Amar Chitra Katha novels/comics, trust me this one goes beyond that and how. As always Anuja is neutral when it comes to the mega devas/asuras war which went on for ages. Her distaste for indra is at its peak here in this novel i daresay. Kartikeya's conception, his relation with his parents, his muses, his mount and his sibling have been fleshed out in a witty way while staying mostly true to facts. Her stories have a philosophical outlook which is not imposing but pretty enlightening. I feel the book is too short, needed to know more about kartikeya in his prime. But hey a good book always has to leave us wanting more right?
