My Review :
We are very much aware of the epic tale : Mahabharata but are oblivious to numerous episodes which occurred before and after this magnanimous war. Hence, this book gives us an elaborate understanding of various incidents that led to the war (Mahabharata) and how the deeds of various Warriors and Kings had an adverse effect on the lives of their successors.
I won’t be listing out my favourite stories as each and every tale in this book will either present a lesson for life or surprise you with it’s plot and climax. You really need to be wise enough to understand the crux, certain tales has to offer, for the growth of your spiritual being.
Sudha Murthy never fails to amaze it’s readers with her magnificent stories and seamlessly perfect writing skills. The language is simple yet elegant and convincing at the same time. Owing to this reason, she is one of my favourite authors of all time.
Guys, just read this book and I’m sure you will thank me later.
This book is also a collection of stories , but they are stories from Mahabharata. I have seen , read a lot from my childhood (like from weekly , monthly magazines. ). So it was good to recollect them now , also language and how the author wrote them intrigues you. I simply liked this Book.
What was promise that kept Barbareeka out of the war ?
... and much more for the avid fan !
